This would then mean they would allow the roll out of the BB in India.
Once Rim caters to anyone, their uniqueness is gone and no one would be able to depend on the security of the device - legitimate corporate secrets, and US Gov't security would be compromised. Now, that does not mean that India did not find a way to break into the system. My device is a PHONE that happens to have a qwerty keyboard and I don't depend on its security for anything but others do.
I can't find any reference to this on Yahoo's Tech page and they have had articles in the past on India's conflict with Rim.
