There’s been some buzz lately about the Avatar Builder app that RIM released. It’s a pretty cool project that comes shortly after the success of several other avatar builders on App World. The problem, is that for some reason RIM has decided to not support its home country of Canada. The app even supports countries like Saint Vincent and the Grenadine, but not the country where its headquarters is located. It’s almost hilarious.
The app’s purpose seems to be a way to promote the BlackBerry Newsletter which contains special offers, news and app recommendations. But even when you sign up for the newsletter, Canada is available as a country to select.
Update from BerryReview: For those of you whose country limits them from downloading this app, you can grab it OTA from these links:

Apparently it has something to do with the EULA which is completely insane because nobody is going to sue over an avatar. RIM Legal needs to get their heads examined.
