Of course there is an easy way around it. Download and
Enabler' on your phone (if it is rooted) and then you can impersonate any
country/carrier combination. That will let you install Ingress from the
Play Store, though you still need an invite code once it loads to get in.
The problem here is that Ingress requires local maps for things like the power
you collect. So if you install the app and there is no possibility of using
it without visiting another country then it's not going to be useful.
Now even if you can install it without Google's help and get it to work (maybe
the power etc is added automatically based on Google Maps) then there's still
the issue of not having a lot of people in Australia. In which case we might
have to split the Android hacking people into two teams to make it fun.
But let's hope that Google just haven't released it yet and it will be
available in Australia in a few days.
