Same thing happened for Nokia.
And don't forget about the domestic production of Android phones in India. Combined with the cheap Chinese android phones, RIM will have a very hard time time there in the coming years, and is at the peak of its marketshare there, just like it was in the US a few years ago.

It's really sad that private communications have to be monitored in India for the sake of.......wait for it........to make sure regular folks can't access pornography. Yup, that's what the the real issue is, naked pictures.
In a religiously-centric society where people can be arrested for kissing in public, access the GB's of naughty images has the morals police on permanent spin cycle. Forget about terrorists trying to blow things up and killing people, it's about controlling public decency that RIM needs to give the Government access to everyone's email and Internet history.
So, the world can now sleep safe at night knowing that Indians are not getting all hot and bothered over some video clips.

Yes, let's all be elitists and complain about how no one is going to India and Indians are screwed. Let's also forget that Canada, the US, and UK all have the same agreements already, and that most of the West is attempting the same thing. But no Western country would ever do such a thing right? Especially the one that passed the NDAA?

Read every post in this thread and I must say it was very entertaining. I'm going to however side with those saying that one it was India more or less wanting more control over what their citizens were accessing as far as religion goes. Also I agree with those saying RIM also really had no choice with their current state and India being such a strong market for them.

I dont understand, why people are so worried about Govt. agencies snooping on their chats and Mails. As long as you don't indulge in any terrorist related domains, why should there be a reason to worry? And if someone does, for sure, they must have found alternate and much secure methods of communicating.

It just depends on the government, its usually pretty dangerous where there is a crazy totalitarian/dictator leader f*cking up the country.

A very good move by Indian Govt and RIM respectively. Considering everything in the world comes with two aspects positive and negative BBM can be used for bad means too. The forces that could potentially harm India or the people dealing their dirty money plans via BBM will now be checked upon.
Govt is least bothered what a common man is talking through BBM.

So, yes RIM gives in, but does not give in on BES email security. A business move they had to make. I don't like it. But it is what it is.
EDIT: And before anyone else says it...
"All your BES are belong to us."

Next they will ask Apple to allow them to intercept iMessages. I think the only secure place is our mind. Just because they are the Government they want access to everything....but even after that the bad guys will accomplish in their task.
