Google eBooks has launched its e-bookstore in the UK.
Google said it had hundreds of thousands of commercially available books to buy at launch, in addition to two million public-domain e-books. Google eBooks are stored in an online library and accessible across devices including laptops, netbooks, tablets, smartphones and e-readers.
The development comes almost a year after its US e-book store went live, with Google now promising launches in other English-language markets such as Australia and Canada to follow soon, with European expansion slated for next year.
