India going hard on telecos: Following battle with RIM, India aims crosshairs at Google and Skype

indiaWith more than 1 million Blackberry users in the country, Research in Motion was satisfied to reach an agreement with India in August. Well, perhaps RIM can give some advice to Google and Skype on how to do battle with India, because they’re next in the country’s line of fire.

India is targeting Gmail’s powerful encryption technology, as well as Skype, and is expected to give them ultimatums very soon.

Google says it has not yet received any official notice from India on this matter.
