Android phones are popular. So popular, in fact, that by Q4 of 2010, handsets equipped with Android OS were shipping even faster than handsets equipped with the Nokia Symbian operating system. But what Android phone owners still lack is a comprehensive, web-based applications marketplace of their own – a fully-functioning online store like the Apple App Store, where users can search and download apps.

Until now. (Maybe.) According to the tech site Android and Me, Google will take the wraps off the completed, web-based Android Market on Wednesday, at a press event on the Google campus in California. Android and Me quotes a "regular source" as saying that the online Android Market will be "on par" with the "Apple App Store or even better." Which seems plausible enough.
