Title: DEVICE REGIONALIZATION BASED ON GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION
Abstract:
In one example, a method is described, in which a geographic location of an electronic device may be determined. Further, a region code may be read from a device component installed in the electronic device. Furthermore, the geographic location of the electronic device may be compared with the region code of the device component. The electronic device may be enabled to function with the device component when the geographic location of the electronic device falls under a region defined by the region code.
