Harry Potter Android

Calling all Muggles -- JK Rowling's Harry Potter series will finally be hitting e-readers this fall, and it'll be available on Android. There's a bit of a catch, as you'll actually be buying the books from the new Pottermore site in October. When you purchase, you'll have the option to save the book to your Google Books library. And from there, you can read on any Android smartphone or tablet (or any non-Android or iOS device that has a browser).

Google also announced that Google Checkout is the preferred third-party checkout for Pottermore. So if you've got an Android phone and have ever purchased an app from the Android Market, you're already set. More details are set to unfold leading up to the launch this fall.
