    In May RIM opened up its first lab at the University of Pretoria, to help accelerate mobile application development in South Africa. Now, RIM has opened its second apps lab in South Africa. "Cape Town is a key innovation hub, and a natural site for RIM's second BlackBerry apps lab in South Africa," said Alexandra Zagury, RIM's MD for South Africa and southern Africa.

    The second location in Cape Town, will further stimulate mobile innovation, and application development in South Africa. RIM will provide the new lab with the latest BlackBerry devices, and high-performance computer for developing.

    The BlackBerry apps lab initiative in Africa also includes, Nigeria, Kenya, and Egypt. "RIM has been working with 118 universities, colleges and schools across Africa through the BlackBerry Academic Program to provide institutions with course materials and content to teach and educate students on mobile application development," said RIM.

    I think it's just simply awesome. BlackBerry is loved all around the world and my respect for RIM continues to grow for all that they do. As an American, I would greedily ask that they just do it here first !

    If the BB10 is launched somewhere else first, I will be soooooo jealous and might even have a nervous breakdown and have to go into a self-induced coma until it hits the shelves at Sprint.
    BB then, now, forever!

    I would love to know what RIM is thinking and doing at any given moment! Trying to figure out RIM is like trying to figure out my wife: a lesson in futility

    To answer your question, I have no idea but it would certainly be a good idea!
