I read an article that Brazil is trying to fast track the installation of 3g wireless in view of hosting the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.  The article said that this presents a compatibility problem for some of the smart phones, especially the Iphone.  I am wondering if Blackberry will be compatible to that new (old) infrastructure.  If so, it would be a great market to explore.  Has Blackberry looked at this?

Re: Brazil

do you have more information about the issue with iPhones ?

do you know which carriers are installing their new cellular antennas?
do you know the frequency bands that will be used?
