Guess which country is not on the list?

RIM today announced in a press release that it has extended its Blackberry App World in 27 additional countries, increasing the count to 101 markets the app store is available in.

“There is high demand for BlackBerry apps and we’re delighted to be opening up the BlackBerry App World online store to customers in an additional 27 markets today,” said Alan Brenner, Senior Vice President, BlackBerry Platform, Research In Motion. “It’s never been easier to develop apps for BlackBerry smartphones and we look forward to seeing the rich catalog of personal and business oriented apps continue to grow.”

The following are the newly included countries that now supports RIM’s app store:
Azerbaijan
Botswana
Bulgaria
Croatia
Cyprus
Czech Republic
Denmark
Finland
French Guyana
Greece
Guadeloupe
Hungary
Iceland
Kenya
La Reunion
Latvia
Macedonia
Malta
Martinique
Nigeria
Norway
Romania
Russia
Slovakia
Slovenia
Sweden
Tanzania

Unfortunately, as you can see, UAE or even the Middle East was not included despite recent inside murmurs that it would be supported in the next round of helping. I personally feel BB is loosing its grip in the ME market and the introduction of the much awaited App World will go a long way of soothing consumer satisfaction.
