Du launches BlackBerry service in UAE

Comments

DuAnnounced back in back in May, Du’s BlackBerry service has finally gone live after government approval and is now available in the United Arab Emirates. There’s quite the BlackBerry lineup for Du, including the BlackBerry 8100 for AED 1,799.00, the BlackBerry 8300 for AED 1,880.00, the BlackBerry 8700 for AED 1,350.00 and the BlackBerry 8800 for AED 2,199.00. It’s a solid start for an inaugural launch and shows that Du is clearly throwing their chips in with RIM in order to take on the current leading carrier, Etisalat. It’ll be tough going, but we certainly know what it’s like in Canada to not have much in the way of competition.

Du announces BlackBerry service in UAE

Comments

UAEAlthough Etisalat rules the UAE market, underdog du has just announced their new BlackBerry services. The launch lineup is pretty extensive, and includes the BlackBerry 8700, BlackBerry 8100, BlackBerry 8300 and BlackBerry 8800. A BBCool reader had made the point that Du has a long way to go to catch up to Etisalat. To me, getting some BlackBerrys on the shelf is a step in that direction.
