Since when are China, Russia, and Europe the "third world"? For that matter how many people in third world countries have $249 to spend on a tablet? Just... wow.As usual the third world countries get the goods before the US. I miss the old days when we got the newest stuff first.
It took fewer similarities for Apple to successfully sue Samsung over the Tab10 in Europe and USASimilar form factor: a thin aluminum slab with a 4:3 display, and that's pretty much where the similarities end. Nexus 9 looks more like an iPad, but it's different aspect ratio.
The N1 seems to be very well priced, and if it ever comes to northern Europe, I'll get it.
