crimeandpunishment writes “Does the battle over the Blackberry ban in the United Arab Emirates have its roots in a spy story? Dubai’s police chief says concern over espionage (specifically, by the US and Israel) led to the decision to limit BlackBerry services. The UAE says it will block BlackBerry email, messaging, and web services on October 11th unless it gets access to encrypted data. Comments by Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim are often seen as reflecting the views of Dubai’s leadership, and would appear to indicate a very hard line in talks with Research in Motion.”
