    I've just noticed that the Android Market shows a blank page with the message 'No matching content in Android Market'. Yet when I go to specific sections of the Market or do a search, one is able to download and install applications and games just fine. I've only just noticed this happening in the last few days. I'm using an unlocked UK version Galaxy S but my location is Inner Mongolia, China. Would this have anything to do with Android Market not showing content on the front page?

    The S itself is loaded with Froyo, as downloaded from the XDA forums.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I've now realised what's happening here. The front page of the Android Market only shows paid applications and games. Google does not distribute paid applications and games in mainland China, they're only available in the Hong Kong SAR. No paid applications are showing up at all in the Android Market on my UK version Galaxy S while it's operating in mainland China.

    I think Android phones supplied by Chinese carriers, China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom(can you see a pattern here?) have their own specific 'app stores', with paid content distributed by the carriers themselves.

    Root your phone and get Market Enabler on there, then you can have your phone tell the Market its in the US or whatever. Its how I get apps now available in my country.
