With every major player in the mobile storefront offering gift cards for purchases, Google has been the only one that hasn’t introduced a gift card of their own. Well that is about to change with the impending introduction o Google Play gift cards.
A recently leak of an updated Google Play Store APK file lead to speculation that Google would soon be introducing gift cards along with wish list functionality. This has been spreading across the net like wild-fire this morning, well some new info has popped up via AndroidCentral. They’ve actually gotten a hold of two different physical card packages for the upcoming Google Play store. The packaging clearly shows “Music Movies Books Apps & More”.
This is just one more step towards complete competition with the likes of iTunes, Amazon, and the Microsoft Zune / App store.
