This is true, and unfortunately the Blackberry/iPhone/Mobile app is the only option many of us have: Blizzard will not ship the physical authenticator to some locations. Those of us in U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, etc. are locations to which Blizzard will not ship the devices. At first I assumed it had something to do with security/encryption export laws, the same laws apply to the technology available in mobile phones. Blizzard will ship them to non-U.S. addresses but apparently not all domestic U.S. Postal Service areas. It makes Blizzard's recent struggles to get WoW in China very ironic considering China's stance on foreign encryption technology.
