RIM wins reprieve

To ban or not to ban. Well for UAE mobile users it looks like you are in the clear for now. The Oct. 11 deadline to ban all RIM based phone communications has now been called off. According to sources an agreement has been worked out to satisfy both sides. My guess is that a temporary solution is working as a proof of concept and putting the necessary hardware in place is in the works. So looks like the 500,000 Blackberry users will be able to continue to happily message away with the UAE government/RIM monitoring conversations. Governments accessing corporate data is going to open a whole new can of worms. Get ready for a few months of economic instability once a few corrupt government employees get their hands on inside information and start making big stock market bets. Let the data leaks begin!
