PCMag: More bad news for struggling smartphone maker RIM: BlackBerry customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) reported an outage early this morning. Acknowledging the problem, the company tweeted, “Some users in EMEA are experiencing issues with their BlackBerry services. We are investigating and apologize for any inconvenience.”

Later, RIM confirmed that all services had been restored.
