Argentina temporarily bans sale of BlackBerry Smartphones
Argentina is temporarily banning the sale of BlackBerry and Apple devices across the country. Sales of both devices make up 60% of the smartphone market in Argentina, however they have been banned since neither company currently has a plant in the country (unlike Nokia, Samsung, LG and Motorola). The ban was issued in hope of stabalizing the current bad economy being that there is a 20.48% tax on imported electronics, in addition to the regular 21% tax. The companies could avoid the ban either by building a plant in Argentina or finding a partner with which to sell their products.
