Mobily & Apple to launch iPhone 3GS in Saudi Arabia

Update: Mobily is now taking orders for the iPhone 3GS on their website.

Mobily announced that they will be bring the iPhone 3GS to Saudi Arabia. Mobily made that announcement in an extremely short and vague press release that can be found on Zawya.

The press release stated that Apple and Mobily has “reached an agreement”, did it take them all these months just to reach an agreement? While in UAE, Mobily’s partner Etisalat will release the iPhone 3GS this Tuesday. The press released also mentioned that the iPhone 3GS will be “be available to qualifying customers” what defines qualifying customers? Finally it asks to visit this page for more info, however no info can be found on that page.


This is the press release:

24 October 2009
Mobily and Apple have reached an agreement to bring iPhone 3GS to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the coming months. iPhone 3GS, the fastest most powerful iPhone yet, will be available to qualifying customers. For information please visit www.mobily.com.sa/iphone. For more information on iPhone, please visit www.apple.com/iphone.
