And the shoe drops!

Google announces retail sales of ebooks for any Web-enabled device.

This, my friends, is the game-changing development that has been lurking in the background for years, but it wasn't at all clear how it was going to come about.

Wow.

Doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me, really. It's probably about as big a deal as eBooks on the iPhone, somewhat less than the Kindle. I'm sure it'll be another important step.

Hopefully they'll also sell in one of the open formats like ePub so those of us with non-connected eBook readers can buy from them (assuming that they'll be selling non-DRM'd books; I don't pay a penny to companies doing DRM).
