RIM Sets Up BlackBerry Server in Mumbai
Research in Motion has been having issues with India for a while and, after a lot of debate and controversy, they have finally set up their BlackBerry server in Mumbai with 5000 Enterprise Servers for BES included. The servers were inspected by a team of officers and permission for direct monitoring of messaging was expected to be issued. The government had been pressuring BlackBerry for quite some time to provide a way to intercept their messaging service (BBM and email) , but according to licensing conditions, the service providers are liable to put a mechanism that will allow security agencies to monitor the messages on these devices.
Now that BlackBerry has finally set up these new servers in Mumbai, let us hope that this solves any issues they might have been having with the government and let all our friends in India finally be able to enjoy their BlackBerry to the fullest.
