A newspaper section is coming to the Google Play store for Android-powered mobile devices, according to a report by Android Police
. Google Play News would join the store's existing marketplaces for apps, magazines, books, movies and music.
It could become an important market for news publishers, as Android-powered tablets surpass iPads
in market share. Publishers have been able to sell subscriptions
within their Android apps for nearly a year now, but having a special storefront for news in the Play store could help drive readers that way.
But this news app market will face some significant hurdles.
