Default [Q] Buying US Nexus for use in UK

I am going to the U.S next month and am considering buying a Nexus 7 while there due to being about 75 cheaper than UK prices. I was wondering what problems I may run into regarding using it back in the UK. Will it work ok? Will the Google Play Store work properly? etc.
Thanks for any help

Two main issues:

Warranty; you would need to return it to the US for any warranty work

Charger; the charger will be a two pin US style

Otherwise there should be nothing stopping your enjoying you tablet in the UK.

You may also find that if it comes with any Google Play credits (currently being offered) that they will only work with a valid US Google account.
