Watch Out, RIM!
Importantly, Data Infosys says it can meet the Indian government's security requirements, according to The Hindustan Times.
Earlier this year, the Indian government threatened to shut down BlackBerry services if RIM did not meet demands to allow access to encrypted messenger and email services. And while there has been a temporary reprieve for RIM while various solutions were tested, the problems have not yet been resolved. (See BlackBerry Avoids Ban in India, Indian Ops Told to Sniff BlackBerrys, and RIM to Comply in India .)
So BharatBerry is targeted at the current and potential users of BlackBerry services in the country.
BharatBerry is Indian innovation at its best: If there's an issue with the original, you do the next best thing -- come out with a duplicate. While BharatBerry might not attract large corporates as customers, it's sure to appeal to India's small and medium-sized business.
