RIM Users Experience Minor Downtime

Research in Motion is investigating reports of minor downtime suffered by some of its users.

The BlackBerry maker had recently suffered an embarrassing four-day long downtime which angered millions of users worldwide as they had not been able to access the web or BlackBerry Messenger along with their email.

The company later said it had suffered an outage in its unique server architecture, which is used for compressing and encrypting mobile phone data.

Thankfully, the recent outage was minor and was resolved soon enough, the company reported.

"We're getting reports that some users are experiencing delays. We're investigating and will update you ASAP. There is no system-wide outage. However, we are investigating reports that some users in EMEIA have experienced delays," the company said in a statement, as reported by the Inquirer.

"Update: BlackBerry services are currently operating normally in EMEIA," the company informed some time later via Twitter.

The company seems to be in crisis mode at the moment coupled with the recent outages, everything seems to be going wrong. RIM's smartphone market share has plummeted and it seems to just keep getting worse.
