+ - BlackBerry Services To Be Halted In UAE->

Submitted by WrongSizeGlass
WrongSizeGlass (838941) writes "Bloomberg is reporting RIM’s BlackBerry Messenger, e-mail and Web browsing services will be suspended in the United Arab Emirates, the Middle East’s business hub, starting October 11th due to security concerns. RIM faces similar restrictions in India. The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority said in a statement on state-run Emirates News Agency. “In their current form, certain BlackBerry services allow users to act without any legal accountability, causing judicial, social and national security concerns for the U.A.E.,” it said. A senior Indian government official said, "Though RIM has been fully cooperating ever since the matter was taken up with it in 2008, reports of the company's move to set up a server in China forced us to look at it in a different way.""
