India: 15 day deadline on BlackBerry service

Comments

India’s flagOperators in India have a received a 15 day deadline from the government to allow monitoring of BlackBerry email before services are shut off. Though the phones themselves were pronounced safe from banning less than two weeks ago, their email service is apparently not. Operators were unconcerned with the deadline, saying that they were confident of becoming compliant well before it hit. There was no official word from RIM, but given their recent success in Russia and China, I’m sure they’re familiar with the process.
