Newsstand rival here in time for Christmas
Android users in the UK can now buy magazines from the Google Play Store.
The app, which was announced and launched in the States this summer, offers 30-day trials to titles like Total Film, Wired, GQ, Classic Rock, Future Music, Vogue and Esquire.
At the end of the 30-day subscription, the Google Play store will begin charging unless users cancel prior to the end of the trial. Single issues, back issues and yearly subscriptions are available for download.
The selection of titles at launch is certainly adequate, but this should also inspire publishers who've enjoyed success on the iPad to offer their titles through Google's portal also.
