indiePub is hoping to introduce a card which can be pruchased at selected retail locations
This holiday season, if you pick up a new Android tablet for your friends or family, you be able to also grab an 'Android All-Stars Card' as gift, allowing them to purchase some Android games for it!
One of the problems with the growing trend of Android devices, is if you going to pick one up for your family or close friends this holiday season, they going to unwrap a 'blank' tablet, and have to BUY their own apps to try it out, some gift that is they just unwrapped from you, not very nice Mr. Santa. -- Well have no fear, indiePub claims they have a wonderful idea to produce the first of its kind, a 'gift card' with a coupon code allowing the holder to grab a selection of what they are calling 'All-Stars' bundles of games.
They hope to have this cards available for purchase in places like Target, Toys R' Us, Rogers Mobile, Sam's Club and other big box brick and mortar stores that have been loosing out on Android marketplace sales, but now can 'cash in' a bit for those hunting for new shiny smart toy for their friends or family, or just a special stocking stuffer for ones that already have every under the sun!"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. The Android All-Stars cards also tap into a small fraction of the new indiePub technology that will soon be unveiled with the launch of the new indiePub site. Android publishing partners benefit by having their great games pulled from the clutter of the hundreds of thousands of apps in the Android Marketplace to then be placed in front of significant consumer retail traffic." - indiePub CEO Mark Seremet.
