theres a sticker on the inside (behind battery) of my 8700g that says "Made In Mexico." Most of the accessories normally say "made in canada." I also think previous blackberry's were made in canada, like the 7520, and 7250 I got at work. I got to double check on that.

My 8700r is made in Canada.

However, RIM is beginning to outsource manufacturing now. Still, the Canadian headquarters have been going on a job-hiring rampage lately (I see advertisements in Canadian newspapers all the time now). It sounds like they want to really ramp things up in the next 12 months. From designers to DSP stuff to programmers etc.

I got the 8700g from T-Mo. Wonder if some of the T-MO 8700g were made in CANADA?

Im hoping the new 8100 is made in Canada.
The blackberry is a great example of Canadian ingenuity,like the CanadaArm on the space shuttle, or the Bombardier CRJ aircraft.
