    I just managed to install both the Google Books and Music apps after they showed as updates on my UK Nexus S (on Orange).

    The pages weren't available to view the apps so did a long press and hold on the update entry and selected update.

    Has anyone else got them showing as an update on their UK phones in the market?

    EDIT: Not showing up on my Blade or Xoom.

    I take that back...I just plugged my Nexus S into my laptop and when I unplugged the device it told me Google Books had installed.... weird because I didnt do anything and couldnt find it listed in the Market.

    Now that is interesting! Hopefully it means something is Europe bound.

    It was downloaded automatically for me for some reason on a Desire HD with cyanogen 7 on it.

    I got both books and music today from the market after they showed up as updates. Music seems to be just a slightly different music player app for playing music already on the phone. There doesn't seem to be any cloud or new features. Books comes with a couple of free classic titles.

    I've got a Nexus S on UK T-Mobile.

    My Nexus S (purchased from CPW with a VodafoneUK sim) is showing that Google Books is an available update in the market, but if I tap on it it says that it's not available (like what usually happens if you click a link to something that is not available in your country).

    Edit: After re-reading the first post, I went back to the market to try the long-press and update from the menu and books was already installed now.... also noticed I had music, which said page not available, but tried the long-press and update and it is now installing.

    Do a long press on the update entry and you'll have a pop up menu where you can select "update". This was how I installed Music and Books.

    Yeah, thanks - I'd already re-read your post properly

    Still can't sign up for Google Music, but the app is installed...
