BlackBerry Bold 9700 price drops to AED 999 Etisalat slashes Bold 9700 price by more than 50%.
By  Vineetha Menon Published  June 24, 2010

Etisalat has reduced the price of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone from AED 2,299 to just AED 999 for its customers in the United Arab Emirates.

The offer is available to both business and individual customers if they subscribe to Etisalat's Global or Domestic Unlimited postpaid plans for a year. Rivals Du had introduced a similar offer in March, also dropping the 9700 price to AED 999, but only for business customers.

Etisalat subscribers can also choose to upgrade by paying an additional AED 100 to get a 050 series mobile number, 100 minutes of free local talk time and 100 free SMS text messages. Existing postpaid BlackBerry customers haven't been left out and can choose switch their current plan to the new offer, which will expire on the 24th of July or until stocks last.

"This new package reaffirms our commitment to providing the best of technology at the most affordable prices, combined with our reliable and robust services," said Abdulla Hashim, senior VP of Business Solutions at Etisalat.

The etisalat is smart in giving this offer as they will be benifiting a minimun amount of AED 5,619 in a year with one subsriber. Seriously, for me it is much better to stay on wasel with a socal networking pacakge of AED 49 on my BB 9000. Or one could go and buy a new Bold worth around 1800 in the market today.

no thank you etisalat. I have been with Du for the last 2 years now and even though we of course have problems there, still dont even think about ever coming back to etisalat.
