Saudi Telecom Company to sell iPhone 4

Confirming what we exclusively published over 2 months ago: Saudi Telecom Company (STC) will be selling the iPhone 4 officially in Saudi Arabia (not to be confused with SALE-CO).

The confirmation came as a post on the STC Facebook page announcing a contest for a free iPhone.

The announcement said: “What could you do, if we told you that STC is going to offer iPhone 4 very soon, and that we are going to give away 1 iPhone 4 for the best ad design and offer that comes along?

You are the planner, come up with the best plan for the iPhone, free minutes, free SMSs, free browsing, or anything else that you see will suit peoples’ needs, of course it has to be logical 😉

We are going to wait your designs and offers, and there is a huge chance that the winner design could be used as the official STC ad for the iPhone 4 when it hits the market.

The competition will last until Wednesday the 6th of October 3:00 PM, and the winner will be announced on Saturday the 9th of October noon time. 🙂

There is no problem whatsoever if you decided to enter the competition with more than one design.

All designs should be uploaded to the page’s wall.

Quick tip: don’t forget to tag your friends to the photo once you upload it, this might increase the chance of your design winning you an iPhone 4 😉

Good luck ;)”.

STC is most likely going to release the iPhone 4 on the week of October 2 2010.
