RIM called to handle national security

Comments

Flag of Guyana If BlackBerry is good enough for the government of world powers, then it’s good enough for the small South American country of Guyana. During a BlackBerry launch party last Tuesday, Guyana Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee invited RIM and local carrier Digicel to outfit the government to improve internal security. Digicel had only been in Guyana for three months before introducing BlackBerry service, and now with a government deal all but signed, they won’t be hurting for business any time soon. During Digicel’s launch party Carrier Relationship Manager, Lori Mulder explained how push e-mail worked, versus their old way of getting e-mail on handsets: dial-up. So next time you’re considering complaining about network coverage, just count your lucky stars instead.
