India jumps on the Blackberry monitoring wagon
"I am optimistic," Robert E. Crow, RIM's vice president for industry, government and university relations, told reporters after meeting officials of the Ministry of Home Affairs, which looks after the country's internal security. He declined to elaborate.
The meeting comes a day after India threatened to ban RIM's BlackBerry corporate email and messenger services unless the company and local telecommunications companies find a solution by Aug. 31 to allow security agencies to monitor them.
