That's no biggy, I admit. But from an "aesthetic" perspective...
On lots of units there only are certain language/country combinations.
On many (not all, though) Honeycomb tablets, German is the only choice for Germany. Same for HP TouchPad.
So I either have to choose US or UK to have English or use German in Germany.
I hate this. On Honeycomb, I can solve this by using the "more locale" app from the Android market. For TouchPad, I haven't found any such tool.
Other tablets simply separate country and language: Germany + English...
That is a pretty odd limitation. I had thought international keyboards/interface settings were the norm by now in all OSes, given the worldwide appeal.
