RIM just issued a statement saying it doesn't install the Carrier IQ smartphone tracking software, nor does it authorize carrier partners to install it.

RIM just issued a statement saying it doesn't install the Carrier IQ smartphone tracking software, nor does it authorize carrier partners to install it. (It does appear that Carrier IQ supports the BlackBerry platform, however, so what carriers do without authorization is still of some concern.) The statement comes after similar distancing statements from Verizon and Nokia and our own report about Google's flagship Android devices lacking Carrier IQ, so it seems like the list of carriers and manufacturers who use the software is getting shorter. We're tracking this story very carefully, so stay tuned.
