Ice Cream Sandwich: Android Gift Cards to Hit Stores Soon

Independent video game publisher and website, indiePub is now working on developing a card which can be purchased at select retail locations which can be used to purchase Android games.

The website is calling it the “Android All-Stars Card,” and it is attempting to appeal to consumers looking to give a gift card to someone that allows them to purchase third party Android games from the Android market.

“The Android All-Stars program has significant benefits for the traditional brick and mortar retail business by providing a channel into the rapidly expanding digital application delivery market,” wrote indiePub’s CEO Mark Seremet.

indiePub plans to make these cards available in major retail outlets such as Target, Toys R’ Us, Rogers Mobile and Sam’s Club.

They will come with a code, much like subscription cards sold for the Xbox 360’s internet points. The code will allow the owner of the card to download a bundle of the top Android games.

The first bundle, which will be called Android All-Stars Vol. 1, will include Android games such as Fruit Ninja, Doodle Jump, Sally’s Spa and many others.

Volume 2 will include titles such as Kona’s Crate, Guerilla Bob, Free Kicks Soccer, Backbreaker Football and others.

The third bundle will be the most interesting, carrying over 100 classic Atari games.

Each “Android All-Star Card” will cost $10, and the first two bundles will include up to 10 games each.

indiePub is also working on another plan which will involve it selling indie and major developer games, most likely in bundles on its website.

The “Android All Stars Card” will be available this holiday season and should make for an interesting stocking stuffer.

Android's newest operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich is only weeks away from being unveiled.
