"Need a hardware device? Think the Google Store. Need digital content to enjoy on your device? Think Google Play," explains Google. You can sign up for the Google Store newsletter to find the latest offers and updates.
"The Google Store is available on your phone, tablet, or laptop, and right now you'll get free shipping on everything (consider it our way of saying hello)," says Google.
Here's the error message that's displayed if Google Store is not available for you: "The Google Store isn't available here yet. We're working to bring it to more countries as soon as possible."
Why would Google move the hardware section from Google Play? I think there are many reasons: Google now sells a lot of hardware products and not all of them have something to do with Android, the Devices section wasn't even included in the Google Play Store app for Android. Another reason could be that Google plans to have its own offline stores and maybe release mobile apps for Google Store.
