BlackBerry App World now available in more countries. Pakistan still not in the list

Cross post from Basit Ali’s blog

BlackBerry app world is RIM’s official application store. Since its launch, this store has been gaining popularity. Initially, app world was available in a very few countries including USA and UK. Later more countries have been added. Today, RIM has announced support for app world in a few more countries. The newly added countries include:

  • Indonesia
  • Hong Kong
  • Singapore

Moreover, RIM also announces that several more countries will be added to the supported countries list soon. The upcoming supported countries list is as follows:

  • India
  • Honduras
  • Nicaragua
  • El Selvador
  • Bolivia
  • Paraguay
  • Uruguay

This is also interesting to note that vendors will not be able to sell there apps in these countries. Only free apps will be listed to users in these countries. RIM is working to make payment processing available in these countries and paid applications will start showing up in the app-world users of these countries once the payment processing mechanism is in place.

I was expecting Pakistan to be one of the country in at least the up-coming countries list but unfortunately that has not been the case. Do you think the number of BlackBerry users or their purchase power is less than that of BlackBerry users in Honduras or Bolivia?

    the reason why App World is not available in Pakistan is that the carrier i.e Warid, Mobilink, Ufone etc support is not advanced enough. There are many ways to bypass carrier services and because there is no control on buying and reselling of handsets. Basically Pakistan being a free market. Since RIM cannot make money out of Pakistan(apart from the corporate sector being directly involved), they simply wont provide support for all BlackBerry technology

    It is really not fair that RIM still not allow application World in Pakistan.
