    So it seems that the latest and Greated HP has to offer for the touchpad , is geolocked for US only..... For example , Kindle and HP Movies , Now i can understand HP movies as there is alot of red tape for movie Distribution rights in Canada , but Kindle..... Come on , Why the Canadian Hate.......

    Anyone have any insight or work arounds to get the kindle update?

    Thanks

    I dont know what devices you have, but I will tell you as someone thats had a Pre for the last 19 months...updates, and apps take their time getting to this side of the border. It could be something as stupid as tax related issues. Trust me, Mr. Harper gets his share of all app purchases this side of the border, so unless they have it worked out in paying the government, we won't see availability yet.

    The only reason I know this, I've talked to developers in the past, whose apps were geo-locked to the USA, and that was their explanation.


    Maybe I'm wrong but it seems less about no-love and more about bureaucratic red tape.

    You can get those U.S-only apps installed on your touchpad by using impostah. I was able to install both the movie store and kindle using that method.

    The only issue with movie store is I cant seem to be able to change the credit card country from USA, the box is greyed out compared to the state selection box. (hp.roxionow.com page). Back to the drawing board.

    Swipe left to right for more titles.... I thought the same as I was swiping up and down.

    I'd like to say impressive....but I'd be called a liar

    Although it is possible to install the app with impostah, access to the actual content & library is unfortunately not possible outside the USA.

    I've installed the app on a UK TouchPad but the HP MovieStore/RoxioNow server would not let me access the library (only showing 8 old movies looking more like placeholders) - which makes the app useless.

    I think that the only way to access US restricted content on services like Hulu, Amazon Movie Store, Netflix etc... outside the US on a TP would be by using a VPN connection or an app like "hotspot shield" on the PC .
