Blackberry Outage Hits Europe, Middle East
Appears Resolved, No Explanation
Just as Apple was doing what it does best (product launch hype), RIM was busy doing what it currently does best: screwing up and suffering an outage. Reuters
notes that the company's Blackberry services suffered a significant outage today across Europe, the Middle East & Africa. The company says the outage has since been resolved, but failed to offer an explanation for what caused it. The timing of the outage was obviously poor, given that in the shadow of the iPhone and Android battle the company is trying to forget last years multi-day full service outage
-- the worst in company history.
