As most of you know I've been following the whole India/RIM situation for quite some time now. While the situation has been looking somewhat positive in recent days, today news has come out that things have actually started going in the other direction.
Sriprakash Jaiswal, the Minister of State for Home Affairs in India has imposed a restriction on all Indian BlackBerry carriers. The restriction forces carriers to block any messaging detected between 2 BlackBerry handsets until a method of legal interception is determined.
Looks to me that RIM has their backs to the wall at this point, and they better come up with a solution soon.
RIM execs and Indian government officials are scheduled to meet again on April 21st.
