This is just disgusting! Research In Motion is going ahead with the betrayal of trust and the privacy of their clients for the profit of the Saudi Arabia smartphone market. I hope every Blackberry user worldwide reads this, and sees the possibilities of this decision on their own privacy.


The AP quoted an official at the Saudi Communications and Information Technology Commission as saying that the deal between RIM and the government would likely involve placing a BlackBerry server inside the country to enable the Saudis to monitor data.

RIM did not respond to a call from CNET for comment by publication time.

Yep,I remember this being an issue shortly after he took office.


President-elect Barack Obama has repeatedly said how much his BlackBerry means to him and how he is dreading the prospect of being forced to give it up, because of legal and security concerns, once he takes office.

“I’m still clinging to my BlackBerry,” Mr. Obama said Wednesday in an interview with CNBC and The New York Times. “They’re going to pry it out of my hands.”
