Turkey: BlackBerry faces ban
27 Oct 10

Research in Motion (RIM) faces a ban of BlackBerry data services in Turkey if it doesn’t obey new legislation requiring companies to hand over communication encryption keys to Information and Communication Technologies Authority.

The new regulations aim at fighting terrorism and strive to make it possible for the country’s national security agency to tap into any suspect communications.

Blackberry smartphones are preferred by many, as they are the only smartphones which use an encrypted e-mail system, offering the secure communication.
