PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, well, well, what have we here? Hackers have gained access to internal documents from the Indian Military (shared on the web), and in it, it is revealed that RIM, Nokia, and Apple have added backdoors to their mobile software (BlackBerry, S40 (supposedly), and iOS) which the Indian Military's intelligence service then used to spy on the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission (the USCC). The backdoors were added by RIM, Nokia, and Apple in exchange for Indian market presence.

They might have gotten India market share, but all of them are suddenly in hot waters with China (and US).
I find Apple's position especially interesting: an US company helped another country to spy on US? What does the law say in such a case? Not so far ago people were executed for this kind of stuff.
