RIM to give in to GAK in India

Even if RIM does not have the device keys, in order to share encrypted
data with applications on the RIM server, the device must share a session 
key with the server; must it not?.  Isn't RIM (their software, actually) 
now in a position to decrypt content sent between Blackberry users?  Or, 
does the Blackberry encryption protocol work like S/MIME?
