The announcement made not too long ago has followed through, and the BlackBerry 8800 is now available in stores across the United Arab Emirates. To kick off the 8800, Etisalat is offering their first month of service free for anyone who signs up before July 15. Not a bad deal at all. For any readers in the area, you can pick up your new BlackBerrys at Sharaf DG, CellUCom, i2, Radio Shack, Plug Ins, Alltronix, Jumbo Electronics, Telefonika, Jacky’s and Carrefour. Word has it Etisalat just moved into Egypt since last quarter and have made a million subscribers already. Maybe the Middle East is the next big emerging market…?
