Did anyone see a massive RIM BlackBerry failure?

I just found out a story from WNBC, Massive System Failure Affecting Blackberry Users. Apparently BlackBerry users in the Western hemisphere were not able to use their device for e-mail:

NewsChannel4 has learned of a massive system failure affecting all blackberry users in the western hemisphere.
The RIM Company, which stands for Research In Motion, developed blackberry technology and said its infrastructure failed around 8 p.m. Tuesday and has been down ever since.

E-mails are not being pushed to portable blackberry devices.

Officials with RIM said they are trying to reset the system and told NewsChannel4 that they are concerned that the backlog of data, which will rush through when it comes back on line, could cause a bigger problem.


17 April 8pm (EDT) would be 18 April 12 noon in (NZ). I wonder if this affected New Zealand or Australia. I will be contacting Vodafone New Zealand (or they can comment here) to find out more.
