A new version of the Android Market was leaked online and along with it are some new alpha and beta apps from Google. There’s the Google Music app which looks like a smaller version of the Honeycomb music app, and a bunch of other apps like Google Gallery 3D New 10.2, Google- Camera v12 and Google Desk Clock 10. While there have been speculations to what the Google Music service will be, we’ve yet to hear anything official about it. But the appearance of all these apps seem to suggest that Google is ready to move their basic apps from being key components of the Android operating system into separate downloadable apps instead. This means that users won’t have to wait for their carriers or phone manufacturers to issue OTA updates for those apps, and they will be able to update the apps themselves (faster answers to bug fixes and updates) which is a good move on Google’s part.
