There is a reason and it has to do with economics and market zones. Each country has a technology release date according to current standards of tech at the time and how much the manufacturer wants to pay the government to put its higher tech out in order to get first dibs on the crazed tech fans money. Its all part of interventionism capitalism. If that is even a term. Of course there are other variables but this is A main reason among many.

The other variables are the standards. Europe and most of asia doesn't use our types of networks and radio bands. The only company that uses anything remotely like the rest of the world is ATT and their bands (which is why most people can use unlocked phones on ATT just fine).
Here we have two different CDMA carriers (sprint + verizon) with different 4g standards (wimax vs lte and soon LTE vs LTE on different frequencies) and two different GSM carriers with different base bands (standard bands on ATT while Tmobile uses different ones).
The rest of the world is pretty standardized so that's why it's so fast and easy to release the int'l versions....
Also the carriers don't have enough power or will to tamper with the phones in order to "differentiate" like our carriers because they have to actually COMPETE with each other unlike america..............(look at foreign phone plan prices compared to ours and how fast "3g" is...)
Krait is dramatically faster than tegra 3. The statement that you can't beat the multitasking power of a quad core is wrong, since krait does in fact beat tegra. It's like comparing a quad core athlon x4 to a dual core sandy bridge. The cores are more efficient, so they are faster.
Tl;dr: when you complain that we got an "inferior" one x you are just making yourself look bad. You couldn't be more wrong. We are really lucky to have gotten the faster, more energy efficient krait.
