Hi,

Not sure if this is the right forum, so excuse me for that. So I'm interested in buying the Nexus 7 from Google Play's store, but it isn't available in my country. So I thought I'd use a VPN to access the UK's store and then make the transaction from there.

Really noob question, but can I actually do this? Like, will the transaction be accepted and my device delivered etc?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure on this one - it may depend on the Customs and Import regulations in your country. Some suppliers won't ship to another country unless they declare everything on the label and you get a visit from Customs to charge you any duty over and able that charged within the EU. If you're in the EU, Google can't refuse - they sell in the UK but only bother to pay a small amount in taxes in the Irish Republic.
