    Doesn't matter how popular they are, it matters how many devices they sale.

    Dubai and various cities are light years ahead from your ghetto city you reside in.

    Well, provided you consider being light years ahead includes
    tolerating sexual harassment from locals if you are a Western woman or an immigrant working as a household servant kept in near-slavery conditions,
    approving a total ban on dancing,
    or jail-time for a woman and a man kissing each other in public (forget having sex without being married! ahh and those gays - they do not exist!!),
    being visibly Jewish,
    your check bounces for any reason, you cannot pay your debt in time back
    etc
    etc

    ...a very "developed" place, indeed. :P

    PS: I do know that technology is there, of course so the comment you replied to was dumb, no question - however your "light years ahead from your ghetto city" was way too far out there to let it go in light of realities over there.

    Geez guys really.

    Z30 was on sale in Dubai before the launch in the UK. NOT 3-4 years behind.

    The more you look at the evidence it looks like BB is deliberately trying to fail.

    Are we on this forum stuck in some kind of bubble. I and most of us on this forum have used most of the other makes of phones and think that BB is the best. Why cant the rest of the world see that. Maybe BB is a niche phone. Maybe we are just niche tech savvy people.

    Not necessarily, taking a look at Russia, Nokia with Windows Phone easily outperformed the Apple, not only with their cheap Lumias, but especially with their flagships too. I've read somewhere they are actually doing quite well against Android too. Just because one thing is extraordinary popular "in the west", doesn't mean it ultimately has to be with the rest of the world.

    Where does the other poster live?

    Incidently, light years are not measurements of time, but rather, distance. So you're not actually contradicting him at all.

    And who are you? All you think about is kissing in public?! That just shows what kind of person you are.

    Sexual harassment! Seriously?! I rarely see that happening and if it happens then just know, that western women was probably dressed like a ****

    Considering the complete lack of democracy and civic institutions, the absence of basic human rights, the endemic corruption, as well as underdeveloped economy (besides oil revenues) I think Finmob was quite generous, when he said the Middle
    East is 3-4 years behind.

    In most senses its a couple of centuries behind.
