Don’t feel like waiting for the new version of Android Market? Here’s how to install it right now

Well, that was fast. A few hours ago Google announced the release of a brand-new Android Market app. The company is currently rolling out the update to all 2.2+ Android phones, and most people can expect the new version to arrive on their phones over the coming weeks. But we’re not very patient folks. It was just a matter of time before somebody took the Market .apk and uploaded it to the Interwebz for everybody to enjoy.

And that’s exactly what just happened. The guys over at Phandroid have been kind enough to share the app with the Android community. If you’re interested in downloading the .apk, I’ve uploaded the file here for our readers’ enjoyment. If you’re reading this on your phone, just click on this link and download the .apk. After that, it’s just as easy as opening the file and installing the app.

I’ve already tried it with my Optimus T, and it works beautifully. However, there’s a slight chance it won’t work on your phone. If it doesn’t, let us know in the comments and somebody will probably have a solution for you. If it does work on your phone, we’d love to hear your opinions about it. Do you like it? Is it better than the previous version? Do you like the new UI? Or is it too Metro-y for you?
