Google Play to sell books and music in Brazil

Tuesday 8 May 2012 | 07:47 CET | News
Over the next few months, Brazilian users of the Google Play store will be able to buy books and music, according to the mobile product manager at Google, Hugo Barra. Besides adding Brazilian books and music, Google is negotiating with Brazilian operators to include the payment for products purchased on the digital store on the monthly mobile phone bill, thus eliminating the need for a credit card by users. According to Google's own data, the Android platform has grown 400 percent in the country last year. Barra expects that, from 2012, Latin America will become one of the biggest markets for Android in the world.
