Smartphones That Work for Business
We asked several analysts which smartphones were best for business. Here are their favorites.
India must be getting what it wants from Research in Motion because officials are now asking Google and Skype for access to their data. According to The Times of India, the government wants Skype and Google to join RIM in setting up servers within the country and giving the Interior Ministry the ability to monitor Internet and messaging data.
Because messaging and Internet data from BlackBerry, Google and Skype services typically travels through servers that are located outside of India, officials are concerned that terrorists could take advantage of the lack of monitoring and use those services to plan attacks against the country.
The move comes days after India agreed to test RIM's proposed data-access methods for 60 days before deciding whether to ban certain BlackBerry functions in the country. RIM has not been specific about the methods of access it has proposed, but has indicated it "will not compromise its commitment to make no special deals with governments," the story says.
