Re: Saudi Arabia to block blackberry

Granted, the RIM server ID system is very secure.

For enterprises, that was the whole point.


SA/ UAE are going to block apple, android, symbian smartphones next ?

Block https to Gmail ??


The canard on security is BS.
Visitors from other countries are going to not use their RIM's ????

The youth of both nations are going to evade this easily.

RIM will be forced to set up servers in those nations with unencrypted back doors for governments to snoop through.

Just like the USA is right now.

Drew,

Yes, of course RIM can be compelled to put servers inside of a country.
And yes, it can be compelled to have a govt. backdoor.

My point was for the individual or SME, that could be assured that their messages were stored and encrypted, they will work around this easily.

Of course SA/UAE will impose what they want.

I believe that savvy young mobile users will move to cloud based https web mail rather than Exchange/ or back office mail servers that can be scanned by one or more governments.


This is all about religious imposition of separation of the sexes etc..

Young Saudis and Emiratis are flirting and sms'ing and twittering and MMS'ing via an explosion of smartphones purchased abroad.

People will just buy other smartphones, and use a mobile web service outside of the borders.
