Lightbulb dunno

I know you can see the world when google maps loads....but haven't played with it enough to know if you enter a Europe address what will happen....but its worth a try.

I have seen someone else mentioned the BB Maps only supports US and Canada at this moment.

However, from the http://www.blackberry.com/maps, it clearly says

"Currently, BlackBerry Maps contains map data for US, Canada, Austria, Belgium & Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France (including Monaco), Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy (including Vatican City and San Marino), Liechtenstein, The Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain (including Andora), Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Slovenia, Croatia, Albania, Bulgaria*, Moldova, Romania, Belarus, Bosnia Herzegovina (Former Yugoslav Republic of) Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro, Ukraine, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Brazil* and Argentina* * Coverage is currently limited. Updates with broader coverage will be available in the future when available"

Does it mean it contains the map data for other countries but Blackberry does not support it at all (or would you mind to point it to me which Blackberry only support a specific country at this moment)?
