Indian Government Gets the OK From RIM To Monitor BlackBerry Network

Indian Government Gets the OK From RIM To Monitor BlackBerry Network

The saga continues?... or perhaps it is coming to an end. News came out today that RIM has backed down and will be allowing the Indian government to monitor the BlackBerry network in India.
