Blackberry suffers more network problems

Outage after outage
Wed Dec 23 2009, 11:10

FOR THE SECOND TIME in a week Blackberry users across the US are having problems getting their email.

In a press statement, Blackberry maker Research in Motion (RIM) confirmed that some users of the smartphone in the Americas were experiencing delays in message delivery. A spokesman said that its technical teams were working to resolve the issue for those impacted and said sorry to punters.

But RIM has been short of reasons for the outage or the extent of the problem. This ongoing problem follows a similar but short-lived outage last week.

RIM has been doing quite well lately and recently reported better than expected sales of Blackberrys, but that could change if its email service starts getting a reputation for being unreliable. µ
