BlackBerry and Apple Pie

My mobile died. Again. So I’m looking to upgrade to a smart phone.

What I really, really want – what I absolutely covet – is an iphone. But, sigh, we’re still waiting for them to arrive here in Australia.

So I’m on the hunt for a Raspberry BlackBerry. But do you think I can find one to buy? Nope. And worse, do you think anyone can tell me when the next batch is coming in? Not a chance.

Now if I were RIM (who make BlackBerry handhelds), I’d be a bit worried about the launch of the iphone. I’d be making sure that I captured as much of the market as possible before it happened.

So why can’t I buy BlackBerry anywhere?
