Indonesia Apparently Considering BlackBerry Ban Too

When it rains, it pours, and it seems that there are more challenges for RIM coming up. Word is that Indonesia may follow the lead of the UAE and Saudi Arabia by banning the BlackBerry devices in the country. A spokesperson for Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information was quoted stating that they’re concerned that the encrypted data sent by BlackBerry devices is routed through the Canadian company’s overseas computers, as there is a danger that the data could be intercepted outside the country. Hopefully this issue won’t get out of hand, or RIM will probably end up having many battles on its hands, and in many countries too.
