    Funniest thing happened today. Went for the press launch of Samsung phone/tablets today and got a 'Samsung Version' of the 9900
    That's possibly the smallest spacebar I've ever seen. Can't say I would like that typing experience.

    I still dislike that the 9900 doesn't have labels on the apps, whereas the 9810 does. I really prefer the apps being labeled so I do not need to memorize all the symbols for the more obscure things I download from app world.

    Screen realestate is really crucial on the 9900's small 2.8" inch screen.

    And the sky is blue But you must see my point, there is more room to play with now - particularly since they have so many apps abreast.

    When you scroll over it with the trackpad, the name appears on the bottom of the screen.

    Etisalat in UAE is giving a date of the 18th, and hopefully it will be out in KSA then as well.

    I called Vodafone Qatar and asked about the 9900, and one woman told me that it is infact released and she will find out the pricing for me but she put me on hold for 10 minutes then hung up . The other people were just as useless, they told me to go down to the nearest Vodafone store and check myself...I guess I will sometime this week.

    Any news from Dubai? My brother was recently there and told me there was a new BlackBerry going for 2000+ AED, sounds promising .

    CC at Qtel/Vodafone Qatar are both useless, press release from Vodafone Qatar states that they would release in time for EID which is August End.

    Blackberry Bold

    Vodafone Qatar puts 9900 as coming soon on their website, register yourself to be notified when the stock is available :

    Blackberry Bold 9900 | Vodafone Qatar

    Update:
    Vodafone Store guys don't have an idea of the release date or the price, they say its in the "wraps" but they are expecting to sell in last week of August just in time for Eid !

    Met a Vodafone sales guy at the Mall today. He says its gonna be here just before Eid, which is pretty much end of this month. The only problem of buying a blackberry here(Doha) is the Arabic keyboard. I find the keys too cluttered with the double fonts on it. That's why i've bought almost all my BBs online (8900/9700/9800).

    Agree with you, i am waiting to see the price from Vodafone, if they price it same as the price I have to pay online + shipping to doha, i will prefer buying from Clove UK...just to have an English only Keyboard.

    You were gonna go from UAE to Canada just to buy one of these?
    You'de be surprised how many people in UAE would do that

    We had a customer from Dubai that came here on the 12th just to get 2 Bold 9900's (Rogers - Unlocked by us) and fly right back to Dubai the day after

    Those are real crackberry addicts !


    We also get a tonne of orders from customers in the UAE and Saudi Arabia to unlock Rogers Bolds and 9810 torchs

    Plus a lot of people buy a bunch here in canada or the states before they release overseas and sell them for a nice profit in their home country.
