BlackBerry Service Faces Ban in India

Thursday Jan 27th 2011 by Staff

RIM has told the Indian government that it is technically unable to comply with its requests for access to corporate e-mails.

InformationWeek: For several months now, the Indian government and BlackBerry maker RIM have been involved in discussions concerning whether the smartphones will continue to be allowed in the country. In the latest development, RIM told India that it was unable to comply with its request for access to corporate e-mails for technical reasons. "It's not possible to do so, because the keys of that service are with the corporate enterprises and corporate entity that owns the server," said RIM's Robert Crow.

Indian authorities will now have to decide whether to make good on their threat to shut down BlackBerry service.
