Google Books in the UK

Don't take this as gospel, but it looks like certain Nexus S users are able to download the latest offerings of Books and Music from the Android Market.

As of now it's hard to tell if this is some sort of glitch or if it signifies an impending UK rollout, but if you're a Nexus S user in the UK, keep your eyes peeled in the Market and let us know what you find.

More info as we get it, but as always, sound off and let us know if you find it (or if you don't).

Google Books headed to UK phones?


Indeed, people do not read enough these days, and I am sorry to say kids do not read at all. I got some books from my local cash for books store for my boy, something for his age and worked for a month to get him interested.


I am a Nexus One owner from Germany, and Google Books and the new Google Music app popped up in my market today too!

I woke up this morning with market showing an update for google books also. The market page works only 1 time out of 10 (9/10 it says "page could not be found" or similar), so to update, like they said in the forums: long press and then select update. After that Books is visible in the app drawer (it was hidden before).

I have an american nexus one and I'm in Spain, so maybe this is europe-wide?. No google music update tho :(

by the way, that union flag looks wrong! real one is a bit different :)

Books & Music here in uk on a Nexus S. 2.3.4 Books was an auto install. Music a manual update. 3 free books with the app too. Nice.

Nexus One here in New Zealand. Google Books came today with 3 free books included including Pride and Prejudice

My UK Nexus S Market told me there is an update for Google Books and Google Music this morning. When I selected them, they both said "The requested item could not be found" suggesting that they were not available, however long pressing on the item in the market and selecting update works (as suggested in the forum thread linked in the story).

Now I just need Google Voice (And while you're at it get Amazon to release the App Store here too please) :P

same here. I am from india and have a motorola milestone running unofficial cyanogen mod 2.3.4 and i have that google books update
