The BlackBerry incident is now a main concern, so I’d like to have a stab at it. And I’m going to write it in my own sense…
KSA and UAE are against its encrypted data. KSA already blocked the service for few hours and returned it back to end deals with RIM to have access to BlackBerry data when needed (Not monitored 24/7, only when needed) and to have a RIM server in KSA while UAE set a final date to block the service by October 11th.
Oman and Bahrain are going against what KSA and UAE doing and opposing it. Bahrain’s Crown Prince says that KSA and UAE actions are “ignorant”.
Kuwait won’t block the service, but they’re in talk with RIM to provide options and solutions regarding security and moral issues (Kiddie porn, I assume xD).
Now, shifting away from the Persian Gulf, India is taking UAE’s approach while Indonesia is taking Kuwait’s approach regarding this issue while Lebanon is asking RIM to provide some sort of special software to gain access over BlackBerry data.
