Where does it show USA instead of Canada, and is there an "Edit" button on that screen? I can't even find where my regional setting is stored or how it is used, but I assume there must be a way to change it...

I don't know if it is listed anywhere I seem to remember choosing USA at the set-up first time starting the tablet but that might have been for the keyboard?

I thought my pokerstars app was not working because it sensed I am in the USA but apparently their android app does not work in Canada yet.

Ah, I see... I did read that some region-based apps/downloads, etc. could have issues, and changing region isn't as trivial as I would have first expected.

If you only set up USA for the language or keyboard, though, you can change most of those settings under the "Language & input" area of "Settings". Nothing for the base, hardware default region that I can see, but that is where you can set up on-screen language, keyboard type, dictionaries, etc...

When the ICS update comes out in a few days (a little later for Canada, though maybe the USA setting will gain you a few days *smile*), there might be more settings or the chance to re-enter region info -- not sure. Current information says the US push of ICS (Android 4.0.x) will start on April 27th and on May 3 in Canada. Looking forward to it, especially the new Chrome browser and ability to create desktop folder/groups!

Thanks,
