The unveiling of the BlackBerry Torch with an abysmal display has really been overshadowed by Research in Motion’s woes in the Middle East and other countries. As you may have heard, the BlackBerry ban on service is happening in a number of nations who have already banned, or are in the process banning the Canadian-made messenger device. In an effort to get back in, RIM is apparently installing new servers.
Despite just announcing a new phone, it seems that Research in Motion is going into a world of hurt. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia have already said that the BlackBerry service represents a security risk, and now Lebanon, India and Indonesia are joining in on the anti-Berry party.
