The folks in Mountain View have launched a holiday “Surprise Calendar” page on the Google Play store this afternoon, giving customers daily free or discounted apps, books, music, TV, movies, and more. Google explained the promotion will continue through Jan. 1 2013, and started today with a download to Hotel Tonight and $35 to use toward a hotel booking (with the code “Google 35”). Last December, Google treated its customers to 10 apps discounted to 10 cents when the Google Play store hit 10 billion total apps. We can confirm this year’s page is available in both United States and Canada, and you’ll have to tune in each day for the latest surprise. [Google Play]
