No post-paid contract plans yet, but pre-orders begin and packages remain the same.
After yesterday’s successful launch of the Blackberry 10, RIM (now called Blackberry) is riding high on the buzz of the flagship device Z10. After the CEO revealed that the device will hit UAE on February 10th, we now have information from both du and Etisalat about the product.
Starting from Today 31 January 2013, Etisalat is accepting pre-orders on www.etisalat.ae/blackberry for the new BlackBerry® Z10 smartphone powered by BlackBerry® 10. The new device is available to both pre-paid and postpaid customers in BlackBerry Complete, BlackBerry Unlimited and BlackBerry Global packages. Priced at AED2,599, Etisalat is running a special offer on the BlackBerry Z10 for the BlackBerry Unlimited package where customers pay half the rental for the first four months. The BlackBerry Unlimited package offered normally at AED185 per month is now priced at AED93, providing high internet access speeds to support the streaming of websites such as YouTube. The rest of the Blackberry Packages remain the same, including the 49dhs Social Package. Visit their page for more and to find out if your number is eligible.
du has also launched their pre-order for the Z10, where you can visit one of their nearest stores and pay a 200Dhs deposit to pre-book the phone. The interesting thing is that none of them have revealed any post-paid contract plans for the phone, which is something that a lot of people may be interested in. But in time, they should be revealed.
