Google Nexus 7 has the best price in US. Countries like Canada, UK and Australia have higher price. And other countries do not have Nexus 7 for sales until Asus itself brings it locally. So I believe most of us in other countries bought Nexus 7 from US. Good news for all of us, Google Nexus 7 is eligible for Asus International Warranty now.
Asus International Warranty offers free limited warranty service for warranty parts and labor repair worldwide. Warranty service starts on the date of purchase and is only applicable to countries that have Asus Regional Repair Facilities.
So far I did not notice any issue with my Nexus 7. Only minor screen flickering issue some time. Working fine most of the time. Still need time to find out what is the root cause. Anyway, I am not worry because Asus Malaysia should have Nexus 7 space parts when they start to sell Nexus 7 locally.
Glad to hear all is well with your Nexus 7 🙂
Forget to leave good comment at Lowyat Forum. Leaving it now… 😉

HI, do u know any limitation of buying a US version of nexus 7 and using it in Malaysia/Singapore??

Everything is working fine on Nexus 7 itself. Just power adaptor is US version.
Ohh, thx!! But what if i wanna buy an app on the google store.
-If the app is available only in the us, i cant buy it unless i use vpn??
-can i use a sg card to buy stuff on the appstore?
Use Market Enabler.
The OTG usb bought from lowyat will work with Nexus 7? Cos there is no micro sd card slot, hard to use with only 16GB (for me, at least)
