    Sure. It would cost huge bucks though. And also how do you satisfy competing carriers that carry the same model? For example, Verizon would want to make sure their curve gets just as much advertising as AT&T's curve If not more. That could be an issue.

    I would think the first step would be contacting RIM and asking about franchising costs - you will need to pay them for the right to use their logos and trademarks, as well as rights to carry their merchandise. It's gonna be really, really expensive, me thinks. Also, I doubt they would let there be a standalone BB only store...if there is one, it's going to be started by RIM.
