RIM gives Indian ban a miss, BlackBerrys to continue

Research In Motion (RIM) has managed to continue selling their BlackBerrys in India for the moment after providing the Indian government with “proposals for local security agencies to monitor BlackBerry service” in order for the Indian government to tap into BlackBerry users’ email when required. Better a compromise like that compared to risking an outright ban and lose an entire market in the world’s second largest population. The review process of RIM’s proposal might take up to a couple of months, and we do wonder whether this will affect the next general elections in India or not.
