Deadlines for Blackberry – August 31

Government of India has set August 31 as the deadline for Canadian Blackberry manufacturer Research In Motion (RIM) to come up with a solution after high-level meetings in India today to decide on possible suspension of encrypted BlackBerry services over national security worries ended "inconclusively". If they do not come up with a solution its services are likely to be banned in the country. As of now no final decision made after the meeting between home ministry and intelligence agency.
Government officials said RIM was not present at today’s meeting, which was also attended by state-run telecom operator BSNL, DOT officials and government security technology specialists.
