Argentina is having some economic disparities. As such, they’re allegedly looking to block the sales of BlackBerrys and iPhones. The Argentinians won’t be able to buy iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones from now on, or at least until the Argentinian economy is back on its feet again.
The block will be lifted once the measures reduce the inflation level of and strengthens the Pesos vs U.S. dollar currency parity. Or, when either RIM or Apple build manufacturing plants in the country. Although, the president of Argentina, Christina Fernandez, tweeted in July 2011 that RIM was partnering with Brightstar to manufacture BlackBerrys in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. It is unclear if this partnership had ever been officially set.
Nevertheless, if you reside in Argentina, you may want to get your hands on a BlackBerry if there’s still time. If you’re not able to, let us know and how the sales are being blocked.
