Allow Android users in Egypt to purchase apps from Google Play..

There are thousands of Android users in Egypt that can't get free apps such as Words with Friends or purchase apps from Google Play..This is not fair! We would like to be able to buy the apps we want or download the ones offered for free (such as Words with Friends, Hanging with Friends, etc..). What we have to do is go online and download the .apk file and install it instead..At the end of the day we get the app, but illegally..Why are we forced to do this? Because Google will provide paid apps to countries such as Algeria, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia but not Egypt (the most populous middle-eastern country). Providing paid apps to Egypt will increase profits since we will no longer have to get the .apk, and will make it easier for us to keep our apps updated...

      My original plan was to buy Samsung galaxy note 2 since I like it, but after knowing that I can't buy a thing from google play I'm considering to buy iPhone 5 at least I can buy apps that I need.

      If you insisted to continue like this you will lose customers who really have the money and will to buy apps without jepoardizing their privacy or sensitive info by routing the device.

      It is so annoying to force newer people who join the android world to root their devices and get certain software just to download some free apps that are not available in our country, and they are a lot of people..
