RIM testing servers in Saudi Arabia

After the various governments firing up RIM recently looks now in serious action. Saudi Arabia was the first to ban the BlackBerry service in their country for a while and demanded RIM to install servers in the Kingdom and as reported, they installed three servers for 3 different carriers (Zain, Mobily, STC) and now undergoing tests.


Saudi Arabia and BlackBerry maker Research In Motion are testing three servers in the kingdom in a bid to resolve a row over the Canadian firm’s popular messaging service, a regulatory official told Reuters on Sunday.

“Three servers are being tested, one for each of the three mobile operators. We’re waiting for feedback (from the telecoms firms),” said an official from the Communications and Information Technology Commission’s technical department.

The official said the testing began after talks on Thursday between Research In Motion and the Saudi regulator.
