Etisalat has unveiled a new BlackBerry package for young tech-savvy people in the country.

For AED 49 per month, BlackBerry customers who subscribe to the Unlimited Social package will have access to social networking and instant messaging applications like BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook, Google Talk, MSN Messenger, MySpace and Yahoo! Messenger.

"‘Generation Y Not'?, the young generation that believes in instant connect, is curious, experimental and optimistic. They find new technology and gadgets irresistible and crave for instant connectivity at an affordable cost. This rapidly growing consumer segment has a tight knit social circle with whom they need to stay connected in real time. The Blackberry Unlimited Social package from Etisalat has been designed for this young and social "Generation Y Not" segment, who will now be able to chat, update their Facebook status, be on MySpace,  and connect through their social networking sites from almost anywhere with their BlackBerry Smartphone," said Khalifa Al Shamsi, Sr. VP of Marketing at Etisalat, in a company statement.

Both prepaid and postpaid customers can subscribe to the Unlimited Social package, which doesn't include e-mail access or internet browsing, by sending an SMS with "r bis49" to 1010.

Unlimited Social at AED 49 per month is the cheapest BlackBerry package for Etisalat's customers compared to the existing Global Unlimited at AED 295, Domestic Unlimited at AED 185 and Domestic Lite Usage at AED 90.
