    Me.blackberry.com is a the official site for BlackBerry middle east and it is a huge fail from blackberry! First of all they are advertising blackberry bolds and curves only on the front page.
    Second they consider Afghanistan a middle eastern country, 3rd they have countries placed that don't even have a hyper link. 4th and last, when you visit the Egyptian region site all you get is a not found error....
    Seriously who designed this website? Is blackberry even aware of the existence of this site?

    Yemen isn't hyper linked, Afghanistan is in the very far east, here is another wiki link of the traditional middle east http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_East
    I tried the Egyptian page on both bb10 and laptop, using Wifi and mobile network, both come out with the same error.

    Here's a picture

    And I think Afghanistan is only there as a matter of convenience for BlackBerry, linguistic differences be damned.

    Middle East isn't even a physical geographic area, it's more of a cultural geographic area, for that matter UAE would be considered Asia and Egypt would be considered Africa.

    Yeah I noticed the website too, so not cool but I'm pretty sure most of the Egyptians won't notice, BlackBerry lost it's market in Egypt, people here are going crazy about low cost Android phones.

    I once went to a store to ask about the Z30, the guy laughed and said " it's a shame to ask about BlackBerry now, it was for kids", I laughed and told him that it's a shame that he doesn't know what his talking about and left.

    I can barely find a Z10 lol, Imagine a bold 9900 with the cost of 2999 EGP and a Q10 priced at 3199 EGP while Q5 is at 1899 not to mention you can't find them anywhere. I was giving up and I wanted to sell my brand new z10 that was slightly used for 2 months(No scratches, all new), back then the new one was priced at 4599 and it was the 3G version (I had the LTE one), I went to Radio shack and mobile shop to replace it and they both estimated the worth of 1500 for my white z10, I also tried selling it to other shops and they all offered 1.2K maximum.

    Edit: I remember a shop called BerryGood in Heliopolis it's well known for selling blackberry accessories, I was happy that I could finally find a protection case for my z10, I was shocked when the man told me they are gonna change the shop's name and banner because no one is buying blackberries any more, I asked him for cases and all he had was 3 sets thrown in his backdoor, I bought them all at a cheap price(30Egp).

    Well when most of the people think BlackBerry was for kids, how do you expect them to sell.

    I only saw 6 Z10s and 1 Q10 here in Egypt.

    Mobile Shop told me no one is buying them but he mentioned slightly lower prices than what you mentioned and NO Q5 or Z30 ANYWHERE! Especially the Z30 but honestly I would never buy a phone from here, too costly!

    It's pretty much the same with currency difference. May cheaper by 500 or less

    Not really when you're comparing to Saudi Arabia because of the taxes in Egypt.
