    while registering playbook, I entered US as my location. I am in Hong Kong now and it is showing me all apps in HK$

    how does playbook knows I am in Hong Kong and showing me relevant price in local currency ??

    The PlayBook has built in GPS to find your location. Although it's somewhat problematic for some people, it would appear that it's working for you, even if you didn't want it to.

    it uses the IP address of your provider to determine location.

    I beleive it's the server that you are connected to. They know you are not in U.S.
