Google Play Now Selling Books and Movies in Russia

By Alex Mutter

The New Web reports that Russian users can now buy books and movies from the Google Play store. The move comes roughly a week after Apple launched its competing iTunes Store in four countries, including Russia.

Movies cost 149 rubles (approximately $4.85) to purchase and 49 rubles ($1.59) to rent, while books will also cost 49 rubles. According to TNW, the prices are on par with those of the Russian iTunes Store.

Russian Google Play users can now purchase apps — which were previously available — as well as movies and books, while music downloads remain unavailable.
