Blackberrys provide one of the highest level of security you can get on a smartphone and it’s one of its major selling points (along with its messaging, social networking and multitasking features).

The problem for RIM is that some countries like India and UAE want to be able to snoop on their citizens for various reasons and they have started to introduce bans on the Blackberry data services.

It’s a shame for businessmen trying to fight corporate espionage or citizens concerned with their privacy or rights, because there isn’t really an alternative. Android and iOS phones are slowly getting there, mainly with the help of 3rd party software, but we still too often hear about data leaks. WebOS should not be trusted as it’s missing key encryption components.
