According to Jim Balsillie, the Canada is the country with the greatest penetration of BlackBerry per capita. The President of Research In Motion (maker of the famous BlackBerry) said that to the Canadian Association of wireless telecommunications. (ACTS)

"Canada was the birthplace of the BlackBerry platform and Canada continues to generate the highest per capita penetration of BlackBerry smartphones in the world today," said Jim Balsillie, co-CEO of Waterloo, Ontario-based RIM. "We are fortunate to be located in a country with a thriving wireless industry that continues to offer businesspeople and consumers world-class wireless data services. RIM works with hundreds of carriers internationally and I am proud to say that the Canadian carriers and our collective success are well respected within the worldwide industry."

We believe Jim Balsillie really do not live in Canada and do not really know the prices that are requested from Canadian wireless subscribers, because if it did it would not declare that. But I think that Jim speaks wireless operators in terms of glory because a portion of their profits return to RIM. The miss of competition in Canada is not a good thing for this industry in Canada.
