RIM open [backdoor] Door to Indian Government.

Things weren’t looking good for  BlackBerry in India, with threats of bans that were avoided at the last minute. We knew at the time that RIM had made “certain proposals” that would enable its messaging services to stay alive in India and now, about four months later, we’re learning what those proposals amount to. Basically,  RIM has created a backdoor into the company’s messaging services, a “lawful access capability” that “meets the standard required by the government of India for all consumer messaging services offered in the Indian marketplace.” That’s a little disconcerting, but if you’re pinging your connects exclusively through BlackBerry Enterprise Server you can take it easy, as RIM is keeping that service locked up tight — or, at least,  that’s what it wants you to believe

It seems that Blackberry had to bend down to the Indian Government, reason being the popularity of Blackberry Phones rising in India with Telcom operators  reducing the Blackberry Service cost to a very low price. Also Players like Vodafone getting commericial like “We are the Blackberry Boys.”

Future seems to be bright for Blackberry in India, but will it sustain the government’s further pressure.

Time will tell.
