Firm details today of Google’s long-delayed commercial book store:
* Launching in the USA before the end of 2010 (not long to go, then), and in the UK by Q1 2011.
* 500,000 titles at launch, mostly public domain.
* View purchased titles “on any device with a browser” (so, with some clever auto-optimisation, perhaps even on the Kindle’s browser?)
* Publishers will get 63 percent of the revenues from books sold on Google Editions.
* Publishers will be able to set their own prices.
