Over the next few weeks Google is rolling out a brand new Android Market for phones; check out this introductory video to see all the new features.

The new market features better app search and suggestion–including extra categories to better highlight the top downloads across a more diverse spectrum–movie rentals, ebooks, and a totally overhauled interface. Check out the video to see a demonstration of the new features and, if you have an Android 2.2 or above device, stand by for an update in the near future. If you absolutely can’t wait to try the new market, you can grab a development copy and install it ahead of schedule.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    @trinity343, no kidding, I’m definitely not letting it install on my phone. Time to make a backup of the current Market…

    I only got my first android last week!

    updating it has already taken me through two others!

    Looks quite a bit like windows. I would rather see a Linux like interface.
