RIM cooperates with Indian government?
Hit the brakes, Earl. Is RIM giving the Indian Big Brother something it says it cant give every other government? According to the Wall Street Journal, "The Canadian company has agreed to provide "some technical solutions" for local security agencies to monitor the company's encrypted email service, a senior Indian government official said, without outlining what the solutions were."
Now wait a cotton pickin minute. If RIM cant access BES emails and messages without an encryption key, which it has previously explained it doesn't have, how will they offer India "some technical solutions"? Are they merely placing servers in Callcenter land? Maybe RIM is making headway trying to explain how its services work to the Indian Department of Telecommunications.
Whatever happens, I'm sure it will be nothing more than a compromise between RIM and India. But whatever RIM offered, it made Indian officials extend the ban deadline for another 60 days. We will be keepin our peepers on this, and report any shenanigans as soon as we find it.
