The second most important announcement for South Africa after FIFA World Cup 2010

In the rest of the world (outside Canada and the U.S.), soccer seems to be an incredibly popular sport. As a North American, I don’t understand any game played without a large amount of protective gear and cheerleaders, so you’ll have to excuse me for my ignorance. David Beckham? He plays soccer, right? He’s married to Posh Spice. That’s about all I know.

ANYWAY – South Africa is hosting the FIFA World Cup 2010 in 9 host cities, and one great way to keep track of how your team is doing is by using ScoreMobile – available today in BlackBerry App World™!

“But Alex, BlackBerry App World isn’t available in South Africa.” SURPRISE – it is available now! Visit http://worldwide.blackberry.com/za/appworld today to download BlackBerry App World to your BlackBerry smartphone.

We’re really happy to announce another launch and we’ll continue to bring BlackBerry App World to every country where BlackBerry smartphones are available.

    Please help with some advice – i came across a blackberry storm 2 (9550) for sale on a local auction website (http://www.bidorbuy.co.za) at a reasonably good price – the seller is an independent importer of these handsets and it looks like he imports them directly from the US. Hower, a local blackberry outlet advised me not to buy it, saying that only the 9520 is meant for the South African market. He says that the 9550 is meant for the European/US market? Firstly, is this true, and even if it is, whatd bad consequences would I face if I went ahead and bought the Storm 9550 anyway? What would be the differences between the 9520 and 9550 (in terms of software and other features) for a South African consumer faced with a choice between these two versions of the Blackberry Storm 2?

    Just a quick comment. My friend came by with his Iphone and the app. he had for the world cup! It was amazing, why doesn't BB have one. The BB phone is more widely recognized through out the world than the Iphone, yet there is no W.Cup app.

    Jaime, I saw you were looking for a good app for the world cup for BB's. I just found one that is awesome and it will link the games to your calender in your time and not the actual game time. Go to http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content… and you will be able to download it. I love this app and I am using the Storm.
