More than a million BlackBerry users may have key services in Saudi Arabia and the UAE cut off after authorities stepped up demands on smartphone maker Research In Motion for access to encrypted messages sent over the device.BlackBerry's Messenger application has spread rapidly in the Gulf Arab region but because the data is encrypted and sent to offshore servers, it cannot be tracked locally. The UAE said it would suspend BlackBerry Messenger, email and Web browser services from 11 October 2010 until a fix was found, while industry sources said Saudi Arabia had ordered local telecom companies to freeze Messenger this month.
