Google's content ecosystem has to change
Well I am a friend from the Great White North (thats Canada) with a problem. Google's content and all other offerings are much worse up here (and everywhere other than the US frankly). Today I helped a friend buy a Galaxy Nexus. In short, it was an absolute nightmare. No Google Play. We looked through a bunch of other online retailers before finally settling on Newegg.ca. But it was terrible. If the GNex wasn't so cheap/my friend had one before it broke and he really liked it, there would be no way he would have gotten it. He would have walked down to an Apple store and bought an iPhone with absolutely no hassle.
Google's content offerings are just as bad. No Music. No Voice. The list goes on. If Google really wants to be competitive globally they need to fix this asap.
