Google eBook Store launched with bargain eBook Prices
 
 

The Google eBookstore launched with support for Android, iPhone, nook, Sony and the web. Google eBooks will only be available in the United States at launch. You can browse and search through the largest ebooks collection in the world with more than three million titles including hundreds of thousands for sale.With the new Google eBooks Web Reader, you can buy, store and read Google eBooks in the cloud. That means you can access your ebooks like you would messages in Gmail or photos in Picasa.

Google comes out of the gate with broad support of the devices. The only big eReader not supported is the Amazon Kindle. Amazon rather wants to play alone. Apple is allowing the Google eBook app on their iOS devices.

Choice is always great for consumers. Let's see if that already pays off in lower eBook prices. Cross Fire by James Patterson sells for $14.99 on Google eBooks. Amazon charges $18.60 for Cross Fire. John Grisham's The Confession sells for $9.99 on Google and Amazon charges $18.60. Boom! Amazon has a real competitor. It's name is Google eBooks.

If you are Kindle owner I would send a friendly email to Amazon and ask to match the Google eBook store prices.
