How come App World isn't available in Egypt, and will it ever be?
It's a shame, I just bought the Torch 9800 and can't download any apps to it.
Feels like buying a new sports car, but unfortunately there aren't any wheels that come and none that you can buy..
RIM please fix this problem.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
Do be aware that AppWorld is merely a portal, vending apps developed mainly by others. As such, it is not your exclusive procurement source -- there are others that you can try (e.g., Handango, Handmark, BPlay, GetJAR or Mobihand). I have found that there are very few apps that are exclusive to AppWorld. You can search the on-line catalog and then search out other procurement sources, including quite often the developer website itself.
Also, do understand that RIM does not have unilateral control over the availability of AppWorld. Rather, a triad of entities must agree -- RIM, the wireless service provider, and the government. As the primary for-profit entity in that triad, I've always suspected that RIM is not the one who would be impeding the process.
