    Google finally has these bad boys in stock at Game Stop, Target and Radio Shack. Expanding to all major retailers shortly. This is currently US only. I imagine Europe and Oceana area's will have them by early next year would be my guess. Google is doing this smart and rolling these out slowly to ensure it all works as advertised.

    It's so tempting to buy one, but I prefer the Amazon Appstore.

    Blatant copy of an iTunes gift card. I expect a lawsuit to be amended.

    Specially since the cards are a black rectangle with rounded corners :p

    They were released yesterday, so I would imagine so. I got mine at Game Stop and haven't been to a Target yet to see if they have them.

    Google/Android equivalent of the iTunes store.

    I love it now that everyone is bagging Apple because they sue over nothing, rounded corners, OMG, sue them for $1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Apple.

    If google would over flac/aiff or something hq than they would have an advantage over apple... with only selling mp3's, i dont see what the buzz is really about.

    I hope these gift cards lead to sales like the iTunes cards go on sale for 20% off etc. Would be nice since I switched back to android and have been purchasing a handful of apps.

    I noticed in your GS3 Review that you are Canadian (so am I), on the verge they said it is currently only available in the states :(, although hopefully us Canucks will get it soon too because we also have the Nexus 7 available up here

    When you go into the Google Play store on your Nex7 and then hit the 3 vertical dots (menu) in the top right corner, is the a "redeem" option above the Accounts, Settings and Help? If there is,, then you are already set up.

    Looks like it is not activated then. I'm wondering if it is an issue with currency exchange rates? Maybe Google didn't want to deal with that while everything is sorted first?

    Could be the exchange rate, could be they're too busy working on a defense because you might confuse the nexus 7 as an iPad with its four sides and rounded corners.

    Maybe it is activated through Google Wallet, which comes up whenever you purchase an app/something at the Play Store.
