Want another eBook store option? You’ve got one — Google Books just started selling titles in Australia for both cloud and digital device reading.
It’s been a while coming, but you can now purchase eBooks — protected ePub titles, to be specific — from Google’s Books portal here in Australia. Pricing at a quick glance appears to be near-identical to the competing iBooks and Kindle stores, with most titles starting at the $9.99 price point. [Google eBooks]
