New Delhi, Mar 18: Telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) will launch BlackBerry services by April.
"We have got the required approvals from the govt and will launch BlackBerry services by next month," BSNL chairman and managing director Kuldeep Goyal told reporters on the sidelines of a conference, on Wednesday, Mar 18.
At present, four telecom operators - Reliance Communications, Airtel, Vodafone and Tata Teleservices - are providing BlackBerry services.
BlackBerry phones offer a host of services, including allowing users to access their e-mail on the move.
BlackBerry devices, manufactured by the Canada-based Research In Motion (RIM), had earlier come under scrutiny after Indian security agencies expressed concern that the data being transmitted through the device could not be intercepted due to the high encryption codes being used by the company.
