Michael & Josep sent me a link to a post by one of the admins of the official BlackBerry support forums. Turns out that Unite! that we have all grown to love is now available in North America. In short this just means that you don’t have to download it from a Canadian IP address or from rapidshare!
I guess RIM finally threw in the towel with all of their geographical IP restrictions with BlackBerry Unite. Maybe they are finally learning?
