In what is probably disturbing news to the folks over at RIM, government officials have stated that the smartphone services of the BlackBerry could pose a security threat to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The concern behind this is how the data on the network is managed and stored, not to mention that it’s all kept outside of the Emirates. According to the government statement, certain BlackBerry applications allow folks to misuse the service, causing serious social, judicial, and notional security repercussions. It’s worth a mention that RIM uses a high level of encryption on its data transfer, which many users find attractive, though some governments may view it as a problem and a method to circumvent security forces.RELATED
