Indian government issues ban on the new service till a monitoring system is in place.


Indian newspaper Economic Times is reporting that the country’s government has sought to issue a ban on Nokia’s upcoming push email service. Much like the Blackberry fiasco of last year, the new service currently does not have a communications monitoring system in place and will not be permitted until such a system is brought in.

“In view of the Intelligence Bureau’s report, Department of Telecommunications is requested to advice the Telecom Service Providers not to launch Nokia’s proposed pushmail/powermail service without putting in place monitoring facilities to the satisfaction of the LEAs,” Ministry of Home Affairs said in a communication to Department of Telecom.

Someone should call Nokia CEO Stephen Elop in an interview and unexpectedly drop a related question during it. We just want to see another high profile CEO storm out of an interview again!
