When I try to load an application's page from BlackBerryAppWorld on Browser app I have the following error: "Exceeded maximum redirect attempts to server"
To reproduce the error, open the Browser app and enter the follow url: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/46
Note: this scenario was reproduced in a 8900 simulator.
So, the question is: how can I download an app from BlackBerryAppWorld without appworld app (in other words, just using Browser)?

The problem is that the 8900 simulator doesn't have App World installed ( I believe). If you try it on a 9810 simulator which has App World it should open App World.
User must have App World installed first before trying the link to your app (most do).

So it's impossible to access app world on Browser when the device doesn't have the app installed, that's it?
I'm trying to do that because I want that users that doesn't have app world installed can download from bb store...
Why the website is redirected and redirected and ... until throw an error?

There is no way to download from the website on the device only from a PC/Mac.
You may want to detect if the user is on a BlackBerry (using user-agent). If they are you can put a popup telling them they need to install App World and then they can click on a button to go to the download page for App World.
