Google Considering A "Digital Newsstand" For Android

Because the read-things-on-devices market isn't crowded enough, the Wall Street Journal claims Google is looking into a "digital newsstand" to deliver major print media outlets onto Android-powered devices.

Do you want your news delivered to your Android, app-style?
