Google Rolls Out Web version of Android Marketplace; Uses Poor Domain Name

Finally, Google has rolled out a Web-based store to browse the Android app marketplace. ¬†Not that mobile phone users didn’t have access to the app store before, but it was only from their smartphones.

You can visit the new marketplace on the Web at Market.Android.com. ¬†Unfortunately, Google stumbled a bit here, because while the domain name is Market.Android.com, the title and branding is set to “Android Market”. However, if you visit AndroidMarket.com, you will end up at Robotic Magazine’s website.

I think Google needs to open up the checkbook and buy this domain out, so users get to where they really want to go.
