I’ve recently discovered and ordered a Lume Pad. It should arrive to me in the UK sometime next week. I was going to order via the Leia Inc website but instead ordered from the official Leia store on Amazon.com as I could then pay all the import fees and taxes upfront. I knew that US orders are fulfilled by Amazon anyway so imagined that I would get the same product whichever site I ordered from.
However, after reading various posts on this excellent forum, it seems there may be different firmware versions for different regions/countries. I’ve seen ‘EU’ and ‘ROW’ (Rest Of World?) firmware versions mentioned.
My firmware version should obviously be EU/UK as I’m in the UK but as I ordered from Amazon.com (the Leia store isn’t on the UK Amazon site) rather than the Leia Inc website I have a few questions…
Will I get a US firmware version?
What difference would that make?
Could I still access my local Google services?
Could I change/update my firmware region/version?
Should have I instead bought from the Leia Inc website so that I would have received the correct firmware for my region?
Any help or information on this would be greatly appreciated.
