Blackberry & India govt to resolve security concerns

Further to this, the makers of Blackberry, RIM is now going to meet with Indian officials, even though RIM is declining to comment. Obviously RIM would like to market the Blackberrys more aggressively in the sub continent - it is a huge market. I would love to know the exactly how they manage to resolve this. Who will give?

Blackberry-maker Research In Motion will again meet Indian officials on Thursday to find a solution to concerns raised by security agencies, a telecoms ministry official said. India's security agencies have said the BlackBerry e-mail device posed a risk as e-mails sent using it could not be traced or intercepted and the government has written to RIM asking it to put servers in India.

"There is a meeting tomorrow," an Indian official said, who did not want to be identified. A spokesman for RIM in India declined comment. Indian Telecoms Minister Andimuthu Raja said last week the Canadian firm had assured the government to come out with a solution in two months. (Reuters)
