The Google Mobile Blog announced a coming update to the Android Market for Android phones 2.2 and higher. The interface looks much more functional and flexible than any previous iteration of the Market. In addition to the new interface, the US will now be able to rent movies or purchase books when the update is rolled out in the coming weeks. You’ll be able to download the Videos app to watch rented movies once you have the new Market.
The new Android Market will be rolling out in the coming weeks to Android 2.2 and higher phones around the world. You don’t need to do anything – the update is automatic on supported phones. If you’re in the U.S., you’ll also be able to download the Videos app, rent movies, and buy books once you receive the new Android Market.
