India claims BlackBerry Messenger snooping almost ready

04/08, 12:45pm

India claims access to BBM underway

Efforts to spy on BlackBerry Messenger chats in India are almost live, officials explained Saturday. The method would be "up and running soon," India Today was told. As it worked, it would effectively require a wiretap warrant from the Union Home Ministry that would collect all communication from that individual user, catching it in an unencrypted format before it's locked down and sent through the BlackBerry Internet Service.

RIM's self-proclaimed "superphone" based on its new QNX platform, unofficially known as the BlackBerry Colt, might be pushed too quickly into the market.

Apparent screenshots of a build of RIMís forthcoming BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.0 release have been leaked on a Chinese website, MaxPDA.

BlackBerry Colt with QNX seen shipping early 2012

A possibly major scoop Monday has shed light on what could be RIM's first phone using the QNX platform from the PlayBook. So far known as the BlackBerry Colt, the long promised device would fall short of RIM's repeated claims of having a "superphone" through lower performance. BGR's source understood that attempts to maintain the BlackBerry's reputation for battery life meant the Colt would still go with a single-core processor where most of its competitors will have dual- or even quad-core processors when it ships.
