UAE could patch up with RIM

UAE and Research In Motion (RIM) could very well resolve their current dispute over access to encrypted messages sent over Blackberrys in the country, according to diplomats. Currently, RIM has 500,000 users in that part of the world, will have its BlackBerry Messenger suspended alongside email and Web browser services from October 11 onwards unless the government is able to obtain access to encrypted messages which RIM is adamant against. Nice to hear that talks are progressing along well, with the hope of arriving at an amicable solution in the coming weeks ahead. On whether the UAE could secure a deal that is the same as what Saudi Arabia received from RIM, that remains to be seen since each country will have its own requirements and regulatory frameworks.
