India Official Says RIM Plans to Cooperate

Research In Motion Ltd. has assured India it will meet the Aug. 31 deadline to provide technical solutions that will allow security agencies to monitor the company’s BlackBerry corporate email and messenger services, a senior government official said Friday.

The government also has security concerns about Google Inc.’s Gmail email service and Internet telephony from companies such as Luxembourg-based Skype Ltd., the official told reporters.

“We will look into this one by one,” said the official, who spoke on the condition that he not be identified.
A Google (GOOG) executive said the company hasn’t received any related communication from the government, and hence is unable to comment. Executives at Research In Motion (RIMM) and Skype couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.
The official said RIM has assured that it will “come up with some technical solutions” for messenger and enterprise email services next week.
