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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
