I am in the market for a mobile POS for my business but one available in Europe. But on the bright side, I have found great alternatives that are in some ways better than the big name brands. If like me you are also looking for a great mobile POS system available outside of North America, you may want to check out mPowa ( which is launching in Europe very very soon - according to their site.
