Google Opens Web Store for Android Apps - Accessible from your Computer

In an attempt to keep up with Apple and to also give their developers more exposure, Google recently announced the launch of their web based store for applications.
The problem for developers has been the best apps are the ones that are featured on a user's phone and so the small amount of screen real estate has limited the exposure some developers have been getting.
Apple also has had the tremendous advantage of the App Store which users can access from their computers and buy apps for their Apple devices.
So... by allowing users of Android mobile devices to be able to browse & purchase over the web from their computers is being hailed as the next jump forward for both Android developers & users.
Look also for more Android tablets to be arriving soon.  Super Bowl viewers got a chance to see the Motorola Xoom advertised last night.
