For Saudi Readers

Mobily has announced today that they are bringing BlackBerry Bold 9700, in Saudi Arabia Market, it will cost

Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) officially launched the BlackBerry Bold 9700 Kingdom-wide, According to statement issued by Mobily . The “9700” is the latest HSDPA enabled BlackBerry device that runs on Mobily state of the art 3.75G network.

The BlackBerry 9700 sells for SR2,599 at all Mobily outlets, bundled with a monthly BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) allocation of 2 gigabytes for SR99 a month for e-mail and Internet usage, the highest monthly BlackBerry data allocation in the Kingdom. If customers manage to use more than the two-gigabyte allocation, they pay two halala per kilobyte. Customers can subscribe to BlackBerry Internet Service either by sending an SMS text message with β€œBIS” in the body of the message to 1100 or at an outlet where they purchase the device.

I have been thinking of buying one, but I think I have to wait for next year so that I could replace my Nokia E71 , I like push e-mail system, although I have heard there are some problems for prepaid subscribers in connection. But I still have to confirm this after owning the unit next year πŸ™‚ ,

  • seems a nice phone, but i am planning for a iphone 3Gs

  • thanks for your info at the forum πŸ™‚

  • not too late to say thanks πŸ˜‰

  • nice sharing bro, thanks for information

  • Nice………!

  • fIrst of all it’s too expensive and second thing is that iphone is cheaper and had a specific mobility than blackbery

  • The 9700 is a great phone. I find that it has one of the best screens when compared to other current smartphones that the market has to offer.

  • I use blackberry 8310 Curve πŸ˜€ thanks for this post

  • I use blackberry 8310 Bold πŸ˜€ Thanks for this post

  • Especially since Tazzle came out, I am really leaning towards Blackberry over the iPhone. The touch panel thing just doesn’t work for me, causing more annoyance than I need in my life.

    That said, I will ultimately choose whichever travels better between Asia and the US. I think Blackberry still needs some work in that department.

  • Wow, nice looking phone πŸ™‚

  • A friend of mine had insurance on his iPhone and the price of the insurance and then price of the excess was the same price to buy a new phone yet they wanted to see if they could repair it. Obviously he bought a different phone and I can tell you it wasn’t a blackberry

  • Thats a nice guide but I want to know what is the difference between the blackberry and the iphone?

  • Thanks, nice share,
    i prefer the iphone still though!

  • This blackberry fever seems has been go worldwide.

  • To be honest, I am not a fan of BlackBerry, Gphone is always my favoriate, but it is nice to know BlackBerry is becoming more and more popular, competition makes the world better.

  • Nice share

  • The phone just looks like any other blackberry phone!

  • Nothing extraordinary for blackberry. To be honest both blackberry and ipod are not my favorite phones since they are so restricted on programming. But good news for the market anyway…

  • how much this?

  • Is black berry better than an iphone??

    • @Francis, both have their perks, I personally find a Blackberry suits me more but it depends on many factors. You should just try looking at a model of each phone and comparing.

    • @Francis, It really depends on how you look at it. For some its better, forothers its not. Really does depend on what you use it for.

  • I want that phone! =D

  • I thought that this phone was already available in saudi arabia? Its just like the story of sales for the iphone in china, they had some trouble a few weeks back.

  • another blackberry lover here!

  • I’ve been looking into getting a Blackberry for a while, thanks for the review.

  • I too own a Nokia e71 and when my current contract ends in about 8 months time I probably will bend towards a Blackberry as my next phone.

    • @chrisy1,

      E 71 is really a great phone.. if not because of my recent accident , I will not replace mine.

  • hey,
    thats really informative post..
    nice blog.

  • Very good information, thanks for sharing

  • Any review?
    How about the White BlackBerry Bold Limited Edition?

    I’m also planning to get a BlackBerry next year, but had a second thought, maybe Apple will also release a new iPhone. πŸ˜›

    Merry Xmas and a Prosperous New Year to you and your loved ones! πŸ™‚

    • @Blogs that I blogged,
