Google to launch its Ebook store

Google would soon join the battle for Ebook even as early as June.

These would be called Google Editions.
Amazon, already under pressure from ibookstores, would have further competition from Google Editions.
Google editions would allow you to buy digital copies of the books you find through google book search, unlike its rivals that are focused on proprietary devices and softwares. It will also allow book retailers—even independent shops—to sell Google Editions on their own sites, giving partners the bulk of the revenue (although pricing and specific availability have yet to be announced) . What’s clear, though, is that the ebook pricing wars are about to get very interesting.
Google editions has been in work in progress mode since last year, but had to face delays as publishers fought aginast the initial proposed deal, where the customers would be able to print copies and cut and paste texts, while the publishers get a below par commission of 63% in the revenue.
As of February, it looked as though publishers have gained significantly towards a more traditional sales model ….one things for sure…the ebook business will never be the same again.
