Android Market 3.0.26

The Android Market has gotten a completely new UI (user interface) along with movie and book rentals. This update will be rolling out in the next couple of weeks to all phones running Android 2.2 or higher. Or you could do what I did and get the update now from here:

Please again note, that this will work on phones running Android 2.2 or higher.
