    For anyone with a arabic keyboard preference alshop.com has classics with english/arabic keyboard hybrid, as they are based in dubai

    For extra 100 bucks though, but I like to be different with my devices so it's worth the extra money.

    Oh man! I so much wanted it so I can start typing in Urdu and chatting with family and friends in Pakistan. But more $$ and plus shipping. I guess I should wait for the replacement keyboard availability.

    Ohhhhh I didn't even think of replacement keyboards. Would that be made through Blackberry or 3rd party vendor?

    You know you can buy BlackBerry Q10 Arabic keyboard replacement from eBay.com for life $10 and it is genuine.

    @Urdu - Silent Keys update that will arrive in a few hours has the Urdu keyboard. I requested the developer on 8th January and he made it happen within a week. The update has been accepted and will populate BBW within a few hours.

    Arabic/English hybrid keyboards lack 4-5 letters from the Urdu alphabets. Neehoo, pictures sent by developer is attached:

    The only BlackBerry hardware keyboards I have heard of is Arabic and Russian. Tbh, you can request the Silent Keys developer, he is quite courteous and responsive. I speak like a true fan

    Well with the shipping (dhl) it came to 6 and change...alshop.com probably gets a cut from all purchases, hence the price hike? It was aed 1949...which equates to 530 usd

    Yeah I wouldn't bother paying $100 more when I would rather wait for the keyboard replacement availability. While I can use silent key software which cost only a dollar!!

    Did you know that there is only one physical BlackBerry store in the whole wide world? And it is at UAE. So ofcourse they will carry it with arabic keyboard cause that's their national language.

    Hybrid, it's golden Arabic letters beside the white English. To someone who doesn't speak the language, it may seem cluttered.
