RIM is pledging to do all it can to help UK police track down rioters, following three nights of violence in London and other major cities.
The Canadian smartphone maker has been implicated by several media outlets after its BlackBerry Messenger service was used to help organize riots and looting, alongside Facebook and Twitter.
“We have engaged with the authorities to assist in any way we can,” Patrick Spence, managing director of global sales and regional marketing stated in an e-mail. “As in all markets around the world where BlackBerry is available, we cooperate with local telecommunications operators, law enforcement and regulatory officials.”
