India Calls Off BlackBerry Ban

BlackBerry users over in India have been sweating over the outcome of the discussions between RIM and the Indian government and now India’s Ministry of Home Affairs has confirmed that there is an interim agreement in place which allows BlackBerry Messenger services to continue. This comes after the Indian government agreed to give RIM a reprieve of another 60 days after the August 30th deadline. India’s cancellation of the ban follows a similar move by the UAE, allowing BlackBerry services to continue. RIM has said that it cannot discuss the details of the agreement, but we’re sure many BlackBerry users out there are just happy that their service isn’t in jeopardy anymore.
