    Good Move from Google on all those patent issue over Market,App Store, etc.. they call it Google Play..

    I did receive the update early in the morning. The icon appears as Play Store in India as mine shows Play Store.

      Same thing here… And yes no Google Media Content in India yet… Just go on a trip with your phone to some other country then you’ll get it.. Basically there’s no difference whatsoever from Market to Play Shop… My user experience seemed the same…
