As retarded as the UAE authorities decision sounds, I gotta respect Etisalat and Du for complying while providing another solution.
According to TBREAK, both Etisalat and Du stated that they’ll comply to UAE’s BlackBerry ban and will find a workaround.
They’ll be working on an alternative solution with the least annoyance possible.
Here we go; shifting trend interest from iPhone 4’s death of grip issue to RIM BlackBerry strong encryption that governments don’t like.
