Purchases made on the Google Play store can be shared and synced across mobile devices, downloaded and stored on the Google cloud. Ebooks that are downloaded from the Google Play store can be opened and read easily with the Google Play reader. Google Play also serves as a virtual storefront for promoting and selling Nexus cellphones, Nexus tablets, and Google laptops, titled “chromebooks,” which are designed exclusive for online use and online applications.
