Music Store coming to Google Android phones?

It was announced at the Google I/O developer conference of Google’s recent acquisition of streaming service company Simplify Media, hinting at Google’s obvious interest in tapping into the ludicrous digital music market.

For those not in the know, Simplify Media had earlier removed its iPhone app from the iPhone App space, with the cryptic message that it was moving in a difference direction. Now we know where it has headed.

“After developing the technology behind Simplify Media for over 4 years, it is time for us to take it in a new direction.” – Simplify Media‘s official statement on their website, 12 March, 2010

Simplify Media’s platform scans all drm-free music in a user’s library and allows cloud streaming from its servers to all android devices.  It remains to be seen, however, whether its platform allows offline access.
