The latest addition to Etisalat’s sturdy Blackberry portfolio comes in the form of RIM’s turbulent entry into the touchscreen smartphone market. Tepid reviews for the device aside, it’s good to see that it has finally hit our shores. Well nearly, the official Etisalat page still marks it as coming soon with nary a confirmed release date to be found but it does give you the option to register for a chance to win yourself a handset. Whether anyone actually wants one is a whole other story.
We’ll keep you posted on any concrete changes.
UPDATE: We’re not officially allowed to say anything yet, but we’ve just had notice of a joint press conference between RIM and Etisalat on Monday, April 6. For some reason it makes us think of that Ed Harcourt song: The Storm is Coming. And, no, we are not in any doubt.
