Youtube for Android updated; not downloadable via Market on Phone.

The good news is that the Youtube app for Android new features include a +1 button, "watch later" queue and the ability to edit video info while uploading. Now that said, I did get the notification about the update on My "old" Nexus One running Android 2.3.6. But, Android Market listed the item as not available in my country. Youtube, unless I'm wrong, is an open source app that is pre-installed on all Android devices. So why would an update be unavailable in my region? I decided to check on the web version of Android Market on my PC. Sure enough the latest version of the app was listed there as available for download; clicking install and the app was pushed to my device. 

Come on Google, get your act together.

The update can be downloaded here.
