Google on Wednesday made a couple of big announcements. It revealed a new Chromebook Pixel and launched a new online portal where consumers can purchase hardware from Google and its partners. That means that hardware is no longer sold in the Google Play Store, which is now limited to applications, music, movies and more.
You can browse Google’s new store by visiting http://store.google.com, where the company is now selling Android Wear products, Chromebooks, the Chromecast, and its Nexus branded tablets and smartphones. It will also sell accessories for all of those devices, including keyboards, cases and charges, Google explained in a blog post. The store is split into 7 sections for Phones, Tablets, Chromebooks, TV & Video, Android Wear, Nest and Accessories.
“The Google Store is available on your phone, tablet, or laptop, and right now you’ll get free shipping on everything,” the company said Wednesday. That includes the brand new $999 Chromebook Pixel. “We’ve been selling our devices on Google Play for years, but as we’ve added more products to the family, we thought it was time to make it easier for you to learn more about them,” Google said.
It seems to make sense. Check it out in the source below.
