Google's Nexus 7 Tablet Will Lack Some Content In UK

News updates all day from Fast Company.One of the advantages that Google's Nexus 7 tablet may have over its Amazon rival the Kindle Fire is that Google wants to push it out internationally sooner, whereas Amazon is overly US-centric now.

The issue is almost certainly due to internationl licensing matters, which require Google to seal deals with the relevant distributing bodies in each nation, which it has evidently not concentrated on securing for British buyers. Apple faced this matter with its iTunes store, but has been continually expanding international availability--recently expanding to 12 Asian nations. Visit our main Fast Feed page during the day to keep up with the news.
