WSJ reports that the Indian government has agreed to postpone its threatened block of certain BlackBerry services. RIM has consented to certain unspecified “technical solutions” and the Indian government will take 60 days to evaluate whether it has been given the access it feels that it needs, in its efforts to protect its country from potential terrorist attacks. RIM is also expected to set up a specific server in India to appease the government. Google and Skype will also be asked to provide similar access, and Nokia said on Monday that it has plans to install special servers in India in November to quell government concerns. Meanwhile, DI writes that the encryption-driven  privacy that BlackBerry owners enjoy makes the device a favorite among businessmen, politicians and criminals.
