    Google Rebrands and Renames Android Market to Google Play

    The Android Market has slowly evolved to become much more than a place for vending Android applications, and today Google announced that it is rebranding the Android Marketplace to the somewhat more service-agnostic Google Play. It's a move that is sure to solicit some heated and perhaps valid opinions, given the solid foundation and mindshare that Google has carved out with the Android Marketplace brand to date.

    implies that it' mostly for games ... which is a little ofputting for non game developers. Maybe I'm just reading into it too much.

    I got the same impression. Who knows, maybe in the near future they will change the Android phone to Google Gamer?

    I'm not really sure why they felt the need to change the name, the Android marketplace made sense, because it associated itself with the platform, not any one particular developer. Oh well, we'll adjust and keep on trucking.
