view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Looking to buy a tablet here in the US and gifting to someone over in Asia. If i change the display language to Chinese and install a keyboard that can support Chinese, will that essentially be the same thing as buying one overseas? Is there any functionality that would be loss by doing this such as the Android market? Any advice will be helpful. Thanks! (HowTos)
