Google has face-lifted the phone iteration of Android Market app. The new design ditches the curvy lines of the previous version and uses a more functional squarish design. The new UI fits more apps and content on the screen at once and uses convenient side swipes when moving between different categories. There are also new categories in the Android Market app, such as staff picks and Editorís Choice apps.

Also included in the new Market app are Books and Movies, which were separate apps before. Both these services are currently limited to the US but will be made available to other selected countries soon. You can rent movies starting from $1.99 and then stream them to your phone or download them to watch later.

The new Android Market will be available to devices running Android 2.2 and later and will start rolling out to all the supported handsets in the coming weeks.

You do realise that the geometric shape of a square is nothing new to this world, right? IOW it's not all that shocking in terms of UI design. All OSes are copycats starting from the first ever phone to be created.
