Yesterday, the gift card redeem page went live in the UK's Google Play Store, suggesting that gift cards will be hitting the scene relatively soon. It looks like Google is already gearing up for launch, as the option just showed up in the mobile Play Store, as well.
Of course, there's still one major problem: Play Store cards can't yet be purchased anywhere in the UK. In fact, they're not available anywhere aside from the U.S. for the time being.
Given the evidence, however, we fully expect that El Goog will officially announce Play Store gift card availability in the UK fairly soon. We'll let you know as soon as we have more info.
