Yes, that’s right; RIM’s products are preferred not only by business customers. It seems that criminals also like BlackBerries. The main reason for this is the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), which offers an incredibly secure transmission of information. As a result, the law enforcement agencies can’t intercept criminals’ communications. Besides, by installing some additional software they could practically achieve a military-grade security.
Some legislators are working on this problem. They want to loosen the security and therefore make intercepting information much easier, but this will affect business customers as well.
