    Amazon does in fact exist in the Netherlands, in Italy, and in many more European countries that were not mentioned.
    However, the app he started to complain about is about phone apps, so what does that have to do with Amazon as a reseller of goods and where they operate? And what's wrong with offering a 2nd app store, after 2 years of everybody complaining about BBW not having enough apps?
    Ye, because those 10 Amazon apps are going to help BlackBerry out. You can't even install Amazon Underground, now that may be useful. To bad I live in Europe, not available for us. Well than no Amazon at all on my phone. The new app showed me some crappy goods of theirs; the Kindle etc. Just accept it guys, if you want 'apps' get an iPhone, nobody bothers making them for BlackBerry or Amazon, and only a few bother for Android, and half of that is mallware.

    It's a bit funny to talk for all Europeans. I'm from Europe as well and where I live, Amazon is quite big. I'm not a very frequent customer but I definitely shop there once in a while.

    You can download APK's from the internet
    oh, right. No bloatware, no malware. Is that an advice ?
    C'mon do you seriously issue payments over an "APK from the internet" ?

    You seem to be confused... Curve and bold are old OS and Z10, Classic are new OS. So you have two of each and not three.
    I think you misinterpreted him. He said he had 3 BB10 devices and not 3 different models.

    This is why I asked him if he was kidding when he said something like "...we live in Europe and nobody here wants nor uses Amazon...", which is clearly not true, as Amazon is huge here too.
    His answer was 'The Netherlands', which left me completely at a loss...
    So does this thread and making such a big deal of a - in my opinion - really minor and negligible issue.
    But hey - free speech.
    +1 note: I even use Amazon U.S site for goods unavailable here ...

    By the way OP, please go to your other platform which has no bloatware, then come back and report. We would love to know where it exists.

    Was hoping you wouldn't say that. Have a Tmobile branded LG G4 and the available root methods for the branded versions are a PITA

    I'm glad it cracks you up. I just hate being forced to have American stuff on my phone that is not in my personal
    So all your problem with Amazon is that they are American? :-O

    At least you don't have anything against Canadians.

    No no, I mean that in America, you have a great selection on Amazon apps. But due copyright or something not in Europe. So Amazon can get lost.

    Good luck with your search: it's your money to spend as you please. The grass is always greener on the other side, until you get there.
    Totally agree. For work we went from Windows phone, to two iphones in a row, then I took the BBERRY plunge. Glad I did. For work phone contract, I am curious what is ahead in two years for BBERRY.

    I do like to read on here about the folks that have a PP and Classic. I do wish I also had one. I have not even seen one in real life yet.

    Yeah, apparently if you're in the Netherlands you need to set your Amazon store to the US one instead of one of the European ones for whatever reason. Also, a handful of critical apps will be unavailable for whatever reason (I'm looking at you, Spotify!). But meh.
