Android Pay launches tomorrow (November 17th) in Poland with support for three banks

Android Pay has existed for more than a year now. It's expanded far beyond the original US launch, but there's a lot of the world still to go. Google has announced another step along the way for Android Pay, and it's Poland. This is the second EU nation to get access. Well, that's only if you still count the UK. Post-Brexit, I guess you could say Poland is the first.

Google Play Newsstand Paid Content Now Available In The Philippines, Poland, Taiwan, And Ukraine

Newsstand is probably the least sought-after of Google's various media offerings in the Play Store, if only because most of the content found in those newspapers and magazines is available elsewhere. Even so, Google seems to be standing by it. Today four new territories have access to the paid issues and subscriptions in Newsstand: the Philippines, Poland, Taiwan, and Ukraine. Readers from those countries, head to the Play Store on the web or your phone or tablet to check it out.

As usual, the change was posted in an update to the official Google Play availability chart. Free content on Newsstand is available everywhere, but so far only 22 countries have access to paid content.

Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop 5.0.1 Update Starts Rolling Out In Poland

While Motorola, LG, and HTC have been relatively quick to update their flagship devices to Lollipop, Samsung owners have been (not so) patiently tapping their feet in anticipation for the news of their Galaxy phones receiving the same treatment. But the wait is almost over for Galaxy Note 4 users, as the 5.0.1 update has started rolling out in Poland, according to SamMobile.

The update weighs a little less than 1GB, as XDA user thiagoribeirorj reports, and is available OTA to the SM-910C (Exynos) variant. It brings most of Lollipop's features, such as the carousel Recents and notifications on the lockscreen, along with Samsung's re-interpretation of TouchWiz, in a more modern and slightly less intrusive way.

[Poland Only] Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900F Getting Lollipop Update

If the mention of "Poland only" in the title didn't deter you, you'd probably like to know that, hot on the heels of the LG G3's Poland-only Lollipop update, Samsung has decided to begin its Lollipop update for the Galaxy S5 in that country as well. As for what's new, you obviously get all the new goodies that Google has included in the OS, as well as some fairly substantial visual changes to the look and feel of Touchwiz, including a material redesign of some core Samsung apps.

Official Galaxy S III Jelly Bean Update Reportedly Rolling Out In Europe, Starting With Poland

One of the most anticipated OS upgrades in recent Android history has reportedly begun in Europe (specifically, Poland) where official Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean firmware was discovered via Kies a couple of hours ago. Since no carrier marking was attached to the announcement by SamMobile's tracker, it looks like the update applies to the unlocked, unbranded variant localized to Poland - specifically, GT-I9300MBDXEO. Google Now and the updated Google Search, offline speech recognition, Project Butter, expandable notifications - it's all there.

Earlier this  month, Samsung promised that the international S III units would start seeing Android 4.1 as soon as October, so it appears the company is actually ahead of schedule.

While Android users in Czech, Israel, Poland, and Mexico have been happily buying apps from Google Play for some time now, up till today, devs in these countries haven't been quite so lucky. In fact, they haven't been able to publish any apps, unless they were free.

If you're interested in putting up paid apps and/or in-app products on Google Play, you can sign up now at play.google.com/apps/publish or see whether your country's included in the fun right here.

[Updated] Google Starting To Flip The Switch On Purchasing Paid Android Market Apps In New Countries

Last week, Google announced that over the next 2 weeks, support for purchasing paid apps was coming to 18 more countries: Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Sweden, and Taiwan.

This morning, reports are trickling in that the switch has been indeed flipped, at least in some of these countries. So far, we've been able to confirm Sweden, Denmark, and India. Tightly coupled with today's rollout is a Market update that converts all application prices to buyers' native currencies.

In case you were wondering why the Danish and Swedish currencies are the same, I did some research and found out that "ca." means "approximately," and both Swedish and Danish currencies are shortened as "kr" - Swedish krona and Danish kroner or krone.
