- The panel discussed favorably the new Android Marketplace accessed through a computer and browser, through which APPs can be purchased and sent directly to Android Devices.
- The Android Marketplace is completely separate and not linked to the Chrome Web Store for the Chrome Browser.
- The Google ebookstore is another, separate, web location.
Listener editorial comment and suggestion to panel and Googlers: tie all your stuff together with a common "storefront." Think unified interface to all Google offers. I currently use Google Checkout, Google Apps, pay for extra storage in a Gmail account, browse Google books, and buy Android Apps for my cell phone. All those services are scattered around the net. Bring them together!
