Google Planing on Opening Stores in Major Cities
A while ago there were rumors about Google wanting to extend its business in real life, so that it can get past the laws that would not allow the selling of certain products depending on the area. Now it looks like the rumors were true and we have a good reason to be happy about Google´s decision.
Some time after the launch of the third Nexus smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus made by Samsung, Google started selling it at a very convenient price, unlocked and without a contract, through the Google Play Store. It was a step that could have been anticipated since the re-branding of the Android Market, as it is a natural step towards developing a strong eco-system. The next step is about to be taken as Google has stated its intentions for expanding the Play Store.
One of the questions Google has been hearing a lot lately, is regarding the availability of certain Play Store services in some areas. Though it has expanded greatly in a matter of months, Google has still a long way to go to extend the Play Store to cover all areas of importance. This the plans are to open stores that will help the developer get past some aspects of the legislation in certain areas. The stores are aimed at covering all the major metropolitan areas, starting with the UK and US, and offer Nexus devices at the prices Google has set. For the time being we have no idea when this might happen but we expect to be informed soon enough.
