Marketing Strategy? (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year ago | (#42917973)

It is interesting that Google even feels the need to create its own store when it's product as of right now is one that you cannot sell and is of low cost to operate day to day. Do you think they are trying to move into a new market and are starting with this in order to reach more customers (especially when their attempt to take on Facebook with Google+ was) or is there another reason behind this? As a customer, I just do not see a place for a Google store -- but I said the same thing about my iPad and now I cannot live without it. It will be interesting to see if this is a success for Google and what new things it can bring to the market with the expansion.
