BlackBerry App World – Available in More Markets!

News

We’re really excited to announce that applications on the BlackBerry App World™ Storefront are now available for download to users in 27 more markets! Users in these markets can view the catalogue of applications and purchase applications with their PayPal® account or a credit card – and they now have access to over 18,000 applications to make their BlackBerry® smartphone experience even more amazing.

We are especially excited for two countries – Sweden and Russia. Sweden is home to our new partners in astonishing user experience design, the appropriately-named The Astonishing Tribe.

We are also really happy to have BlackBerry App World available to all our друзей (friends) in Russia. Not only do we have a great BlackBerry smartphone user base all over Russia, we have an amazing developer community there too – and it’s awesome to be able to open that market for our Russian developers and developers the world over. There’s a reason we call it BlackBerry App World, folks!

Here are the new 27 markets, in alphabetical order:

Azerbaijan La Réunion
Botswana Latvia
Bulgaria Macedonia
Croatia Malta
Cyprus Martinique
Czech Republic Nigeria
Denmark Norway
Finland Romania
French Guyana Russia
Greece Slovakia
Guadeloupe Slovenia
Hungary Sweden
Iceland Tanzania
Kenya  

If you’re not in one of the 100+ markets that has access to the catalogue of applications and is able to download applications from BlackBerry App World, don’t worry – this year we’re working with our partners to bring applications on BlackBerry App World to everywhere BlackBerry smartphones are available. Keep checking Inside BlackBerry and our @BlackBerry Twitter® account for updates.

    Anyone know why they taking so long to enable appswrold ? is it bb is not capable to serve entire world or just playing with us, its not fair to block appworld to selected country , we have paid the same amount of money to get same device and expecting things to work in same way, this is so unfair and unethical

    • Sjsmee

    • Filip Milenkoski

      Not RIM’s fault for your country laws forbidding almost every adult behavior

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kamel-Kimo/100002067903796 Kamel Kimo

        It’s an application that allows Blackberry users to but other applications. Why would UAE block it?
        Why only 27 countries around the world are allowed? What about the others? Does UAE’s laws forbbid it in other countries too? None sense Filip!!!

      • uCosom

        They said that 27 more countries were added, not that only 27 were allowed.
