    There are some countries where BlackBerry has limited availability or service. For example, here is a list of which countries are supported in the BlackBerry Maps app:

    BlackBerry Maps Availability - Canada

    Bear in mind that when it comes to maps, there are a variety of 3rd-party map apps available that often have coverage in places that BlackBerry maps does not.

    Cambodia and Lebanon appear to be officially supported countries (see links below), but the usual reason for various forms of media like movies and music not being available is because of national restrictions or no agreements with the local authorities for revenue collection etc.

    No music and no movies in Australia.

    I was told that there is no plans on expanding these services outside of the UK, Canada and USA.

    Why not Australia? We are as technologically advanced as the others.

    My guess is that it has more to do with royalties and licensing issues than technology.

    Broadband speed, and pricing still abysmal. At least here in Cairns / Tropical North Queensland.

    At least Telstra stores, JB HiFi and Harvey Norman stock BBRY. Z10, Q10 and Z30 only a short drive away to the next shopping mall.

    Amaysim has got the Q5 online, for only $309. White and red cost more.

    Most Yanks would be in Berry Heaven here, given lack of carrier support over there. We got our 10.2 in a timely fashion.

    The Telcos only find Capital cities a priority, unfortunately.

    When I visited Cairns, you didn't have to go far from the CBD (if you can call it that, in Cairns) and there would be no signal. Hope that's changed since I was there last.

    And also likely laws regarding the distribution of content vary from region to region. Apple themselves took a long time to roll out their services, including iTunes. For example, you still can't get iTunes radio in Canada.

    Hey omnitech it is supported in the sence where it runs but I get a large blob with one highway and a river! They don't have maps of lebanon!
    Some countries still not get full service from BlackBerry that's why BlackBerry can't compete with A-img_00000190.png

    No movies and songs here in Curacao from BlackBerry World

    Atleast we can get more from Boston World, than we can from the Play Store here. Simple apps like Facebook and WhatsApp are not available for this country from the Play Store and it's practically useless here.
    Google Maps works excellent compared to BlackBerry Maps tho, BBMaps shows nothing (although it used to work on Legacy OS).
