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.

Well I just saw a tweet from Eric Jackson, long time bear now bull on BlackBerry. He states; All white Z10 inventory sold out 3 days in advance of launch to customers willing to pay cash before launch day. WOW..Judge most Tech Articles by the comments it received, not by what the author is saying! Gets to the truth every time!

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.BB10 is released.

BlackBerry Z10 arrives late in the UAE
Dubai: BlackBerry’s latest smartphone, the Z10, was finally launched in the UAE on Sunday night after a day of “will-it-or-won’t-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 didn’t 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 Jumbo’s 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.IPod Touch,
