Research In Motion (RIM) might not be going great guns at the moment, but they still have a respectable user base when it comes to their signature BlackBerry smartphones. Just recently, we read about a worldwide outage that affected millions of BlackBerry users worldwide, and today there is another glitch in the BlackBerry service as users claim that they experienced delays. RIM says that this is not an outage, and here is their official statement. “There is no system-wide outage, however we are investigating reports that some users in EMEIA (Europe, Middle East, India, and Africa) have experienced delays.”
Later in the day, RIM mentioned that all systems and services were operating normally in EMEIA, although they did not reveal what was the cause of the problem, whether it was some sort of electrical gremlin being the source of all the mischief. Were you one of those affected by some downtime in RIM’s BlackBerry service, or did you not notice anything at all as it was all peaches and cream for you?
