Etisalat, one of the two major carriers in the UAE, has announced that they will launch the iPhone 4 in the country next Saturday September 25th.
The announcement was very weird as Etisalat has not announced the pricing and packages until now. Contrast that to Taiwan carriers that had a total of 200,000 pre-orders for the iPhone 4.
According to Gulfnews, the Etisalat press release claimed 200,000 apps which is an outdated number, Apple announced that they have over 250,000 apps earlier this month.
No word about the free iPhone 4 case program.
That does not mean that Mobily will launch the iPhone 4 on the same day. Last year Etisalat launched the iPhone 3GS on the 27th of October while Mobily released it on the 7th of November 2009.

Okay, it won’t take a long time for the release now via Mobily IMO. fingers crossed! 🙂
Any word about Etisalat selling the iPhone 4 unlocked or not?
@SaudiMac, check this article regarding the plans/prices of Etisalat’s iPhone 4. They don’t offer Prepaid bundles? how about Mobily???
Mobily should have the different billing ones. no prepaid of course. but they announced nothing
