    I have Android Market place in Jordan… It is not blocked.. How is that possible?

    I would hate to see them blocking it all over the Arab World just like Apple does.

    I bought a Nexus S (not an iPhone) because of that.. Why would they do that?

    i love arabs, but i’m not arab because i’m turkish. i guess this general misunderstanding is because of the fact that most turks are muslims. but if we called all christians europeans what would the poor americans, canadians, brazilians etc think?
