Google Play gift cards look ready for retail

One of the biggest complaints we’ve had for Google Play (Android Market) since its first days is that there is no gift card option.  With other companies (iTunes, Amazon, Barnes & Noble) allowing consumers to pre-pay or add gift credits, the Google Play store just has a glaring hole.  Those days look to be over as pictures of Google Play gift cards are surfacing online.  We’ll go ahead and assume that these things are packaged up and ready to head of to your local drug store or superstore.  If Google wants the Play Store to be talked about in the same manner as other distribution channels they’ll want to get these in retail environments ASAP.
