Android Market now available on the web (updated)

The Android Marketplace, in its entirety, is now available on the web. Starting today, you will be able to access the Android Marketplace by visiting http://market.android.com. You will now be able to buy and install applications with a single click of the mouse.

The new web based market was announced by Google earlier today during their Android 3.0 press conference. Now that the Android Market is available online, from any web browser, you will be able to search for applications, buy, and send them directly to your phone with having to plug any wires. Everything is done wirelessly. Simply browse the store on your web browser, find what you like, and buy or install. If you buy an item, it will be sent to your phone right after the purchase has completed. If it’s a free item, it will be sent to your phone instantly.

What’s new in the Android Market?

  • Download apps wirelessly
  • App descriptions can now include video
  • App download numbers now show numbers higher than 250,000

Although the site is up and running, we were unable to log in, so you will just have to wait a little bit longer before you can actually start beaming apps to your phone. Head on over to the new Android Market now!

Update: You should now be able to log in and download apps from your browser to your phone.
