    BlackBerry Z10 to be available for UAE customers today at 10pm - Emirates 24/7

    “We have been receiving so many calls since morning from customers who had pre-booked the device by paying Dh200. But we have not received any stocks yet. We are still not sure when we would get supplies. We are only promising the customers to call back in a couple of days,” said one customer care executive.

    They should produce more White Z10s and create demand for the black ones.

    Three countries, three great responses to the Z10. I think the pattern is pretty clear to all, including to the permanent pessimists who always have an excuse to dismiss any positive news.

    I wouldn't get carried away. Most people I know have BB10 awareness. I am the only one that is excited to get one. Half of the people will want to see it when I get it but it's not like they are going to drop everything and go get it. No one with a smartphone that i know is going to run out to a carrier jsut to look. Just not going to happen. Point is, no one here is jealous except for those like me that have wanted it since last year. Thing is, I had to wait months. Finding out I had to wait another 1-2 months ticked me off ... for about 24 hours. Then I deduced "what is another month".

    The Middle Eastern folks will absolutely eat up the BBM video chat and screen share feature. This is exceptionally good news. I think some people don't understand just how much potential BBM has now. Granted, there's Skype.

    BlackBerry Z10 arrives late in the UAE

    Dubai: BlackBerrys latest smartphone, the Z10, was finally launched in the UAE on Sunday night after a day of will-it-or-wont-it speculation.

    The Z10, which was unveiled in a global launch on Jan. 30 in Dubai, was supposed to be available for sale early on Sunday. It didnt arrive as promised, with retailers across the UAE saying they had not received the shipments they were expecting.

    Retailers said they were never given an explanation why, but most speculated that the devices BBM Voice, which allows voice and video calls over the internet, was to blame.

    On Sunday afternoon, BlackBerry announced that the phone would still go onsale, but it was confirmed that the BBM Voice would not be available when the device was launched.

    We are currently in talks with BlackBerry on launch of BBM Voice and Video services, Farid Faraidooni, chief commercial officer of du, said in an emailed statement.

    We shall soon commence testing phase to assure the right consumer experience. We remain committed towards launching new and innovative services that add value to customers in the UAE marketplace.

    Etisalat could not be reached for comment.

    The first customer to buy the device from Dubai Mall was a banker from Qatar at 9:10PM at Jumbos outlet.

    I was fascinated by the Z10 and I had seen the demo on television, said Meenal Mahajan, who works at Bank Sarasin Alpen in Qatar. I am happy to know that I am the first customer to get hold of the new device.

    I am on a visit to Dubai and I was not all hoping to get one. I am a fan of BlackBerry, she said.

    Black is hard to get a hold of, or was on launch day. Everyone had the white one here in Winnipeg.
