By the time you read this, Saudi Arabia should have its BlackBerry phone ban in effect, taking hundreds of thousands of the devices off the market.  Saudi government officials cite the encrypted E-mail downloading and sending as the main reason for outlawing the Canadian phones.  The encryption feature makes it virtually impossible for third parties to access the messages, and in the oil-rich country, most users were opting for the more expensive "corporate phones" with even stronger encryption.  Saudi officials also said that the phones could be used to send and receive porn, which is a violation of strict Islamic laws.  Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates are also considering such a ban.  The Saudi ban was scheduled to go into effect this morning.
