So, the BlackBerry Bold is now available in Chile, Hong Kong, Australia, India, Germany, Austria, Turkey, Ecuador, and Canada. What I can’t figure out for the life of me, however, is why the BlackBerry Bold is not yet available in the United States, the country where, less Canada and maybe even with, it well sell more devices than all the other countries combined.

If the rumors are correct, the AT&T BlackBerry Bold will be available within the next several weeks but one has to wonder how much market share RIM has lost to the iPhone and other devices simply because the BlackBerry Bold is not available in the place where the most people will buy it.

Research in Motion is based in Canada so one really can’t argue with any device debuting in it’s homeland, but, it seems to me like the United States should be a priority for any new BlackBerry launch because that is where most devices will be sold.
