    I live in Turkey and got my Iconia A500 yesterday. I installed some apps but couldn't see some apps on the list and some of them (that I can see) gave errors before installation that that app is "not available in my country".

    Some of them are skype(!), youtube(!).. I mean WTF?! Why can not I install youtube or skype, I can install them on my iPhone.

    I changed my country from settings of my google account but it didn't work. I got some apk's to install and I can install them, but this is not a good way.

    Guys I need to change my country and I don't know how to do it.

    Do I need to reset my tablet and choose my country as USA or something? HOW?

    If you're outside the US, the market is limited. You could try setting it up as US but it probably wont work if you didn't buy it from the US

    This is a thought and maybe the more experienced people can debunk or confirm this. Should probably wait until we are able to get a nandroid backup like feature or something similir or don't try this at all, but here's my thought.
    Download gingerbreak.apk and root tablet
    Use a file manager and navigate to the /system directory
    locate the file "build.prop" and open it and find the region or country or locale (not sure if its called something different for yiu?) and change to us
    Save file and restart

    Again its just a thought, don't crucify me for trying to offer a solution, no matter how crude or rudimentary the solution is. But would love to know if this would work (I'm in us)
