RIM experienced service outage across EMEA earlier today


RIM confirmed the outage in a tweet this morning, noting: “Some users in Europe, Middle East & Africa are experiencing issues with their BlackBerry service”. A follow up tweet added: “We are investigating and apologise for any inconvenience.”

Service has supposedly resumed so it wasn’t as much as a problem as last year where millions of users couldn’t access email or messaging. But still, great job RIM.

It’s a good job this didn’t happen on a day where a competitor was launching a new product and operating system…

Oh wait.
