Google e-newsstand for Android media tipped

Posted by: Mike In: Google

Google is reportedly looking to create a digital newsstand to run on Android smartphones and tablets. Google is planning to launch a platform for digitized version of magazine, newspapers, and other news publications for Android devices. Google has initiated talks with major newspaper and magazine publishers about the venture, including Time Inc., Condé Nast, and Hearst Corp.

The initiative is currently in very nascent stage, and may be terminated, according to people familiar with the matter, reported WSJ.

Google declined to comment specifically on the rumors, saying only that “We’ve consistently said we’re talking with publishers about ways we can work together, including whether we can help them with technology for subscription services. We have nothing specific to announce at this time.” VP of e-commerce Stephanie Tilenius is believed to be managing the Google e-newsstand project.
