added by Michael on 6 Feb 2009

Google just made 1.5 million books available to iPhone and Android users, according to InformationWeek.com

"Google (NSDQ: GOOG) on Thursday granted users of Android mobile phones and Apple's iPhone access to more than 1.5 million books for free"

They further report:

"Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful," said Sergey Brin, Google's co-founder, in a statement at the time. "Today, together with the authors, publishers, and libraries, we have been able to make a great leap in this endeavor. While this agreement is a real win-win for all of us, the real victors are all the readers. The tremendous wealth of knowledge that lies within the books of the world will now be at their fingertips."
