RIM in trouble – Bye Bye BlackBerry

The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) to suspend BlackBerry’s messenger and other services from October 11 has triggered fears among major mobile phone dealers in the capital that they could suffer heavy losses unless the decision is retracted under a possible agreement between the UAE service providers and the Canada-based device maker, Research in Motion.

Etisalat and du, the only service providers in the UAE, have more than 500,000 BlackBerry subscribers, who are kept guessing whether the two companies will retract their decision or push ahead with suspension of the service.
