What an amazing advert for the security of Blackberry phone-plus-personal-organisers.
The governments of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are so nervous about not being able to read messages between the handhelds, that they are effectively going to ban Blackberrys.
So, well done Research in Motion, for showing that wireless does not mean insecure.
I suppose there is an outside chance of a bluff? That the two gulf states can read the messages, and are trying to trick people into using them?
