India To RIM: Business Is Done Differently Here

In what amounts to a big F.U., India has rejected RIM and its attempts to stop BlackBerry service from being shut down. Oh yeah, the head of a powerful industry group had this to say about the matter:

“It need not have escalated to this level,” said Rajan Mathews, director general of the Cellular Operators Association of India. “Folks like RIM have to understand business is done differently here.”

Oh really? You’re just ticked off because RIM hasn’t folded to completely unreasonable demands. Besides, if that’s how business is done in India, then I’ll avoid doing business in India. It’s that simple.

In any case, this is going down to the wire since the deadline is the 31st. Any bets on who blinks first?
