Well, that sucks. First announced last October, BlackBerry has finally rolled out its App World application — but Australia isn’t getting to play.App World has been rolled out, but the application is currently restricted to US, Canadian and British customers. If you try downloading the app on a phone with an Australian SIM, you get the message “Sorry, your device does not meet the system requirements that are needed to support BlackBerry App World”. Not much of a way to compete with the iPhone’s App Store, guys.
