Mike Al-Mefleh, Middle East regional director for BlackBerry Mobile, a business unit within TCL Communication, said: “The UAE is one of the most promising markets in the Middle East, with one of the highest smartphone penetration rates in the world. The GCC as a whole represents a great opportunity for us, and with the region riding a wave of unprecedented connectivity and home to a digitally savvy generation of consumers, there could be no better time for us to introduce our new flagship product.”

The BlackBerry KEYone, priced at AED 1,999 is available nationwide from today at the BlackBerry store in Dubai Mall, Axiom retail stores, Etisalat owned stores and other key retail stores in the UAE.
