    Its official KeyOne will be released on 25th of May . Currently Axiom is taking pre-booking for a fee of 200 AED . It will deducted from the total price which is 1999 AED .

    I'm not gonna pre-order though, last time I pre-ordered the Galaxy S6 back then, when it was released, people could just go out there and buy it and I had to wait 2 more days till it was delivered to me! no point in pre-ordering here in Dubai, nothing special about it

    For anyone in the UAE wanting to buy one, I bought two from Selfridges, one I'm uaing6, second in the box. PM me if you want one.
    Is there any difference bewtween the UAE Version and UK Verision ?
    The reason I am asking is for the App-Store as when I bought my BB-Passport, the App-Store was Middle-east version, which had no apps.

    If there is any difference in App-Store I will get the UK version, so it isn't locked to ME-Version of App-Store.

    Whats your experience ?...

    There is no difference in terms of one specs, minus the Arabic keyboard. The Google play store will be the account that your Gmail is registered. The passport is on blackberry world which is bb10 OS. This device is Android.

    Definitely Arabic English. No need to even ask.
    Given that this a new manufacturer, TCL, not BlackBerry itself, a dedicated model with a physical English/Arabic KB is not definitive. Remember that since the KEYone is running Android, a virtual keyboard with Arabic will be built in anyways, so TCL may be tempted to pass on all non-English PKBs.

    Can anybody actually find official confirmation anywhere that the PKB on the KEYones coming to the middle east will have Arabic?

    Just loving my amazing Q10

    It's a licensing agreement. Old BlackBerry had Arabic keyboards. New one will have as well.

    I'm fairly sure one of the early tcl pics showed 3 KEYᵒⁿᵉ devices each with a different keyboard : qwerty, azerty, arabic.

    And the pic was included as part of an article here on cb.

    Any updates on the release date in Dubai? Also, does anyone know if etisalat will classify it as a Blackberry or an android device to get a post paid data plan? Usually they charge 79 AED for 500MB when on post paid for android users it is just 99 AED for 1GB.

    I'm pretty sure. I'm using the Q10 and they wouldn't acknowledge the phone as a normal device and said I would need to use a BlackBerry Plan for data. I just checked the axiom website, it doesn't mention the KeyOne anywhere. Can you post some link?
