A little less than a week ago, we reported that there were murmurs that Google may be launching a music store of their own. As it turns out those rumors were indeed true and were confirmed by none other than Google’s Andy Rubin himself at the AsiaD conference. While not actually available yet, Andy Rubin has stated that Google is “very close” to coming up with a digital download store of their own.
He also went on to state that this will not just be your typical MP3 store, and instead will come with “a little twist” of sorts. Unfortunately that’s pretty all that Andy Rubin has let on regarding Google’s foray into the digital music download scene. It has been reported in the past that Google has been having a bit of trouble attempting to secure licensing deals with record companies, but Andy Rubin is confident that they are “almost there”.
Now that the rumors have been confirmed, all Android users will have to do now is wait for more details to emerge.
