Just found that Wataniya telecom just launched BlackBerry services in their network. What interesting in their street banner ad (will be posted soon) that they proposed BlackBerry as social device/service not as business oriented service. The street ad says “CATCH UP WITH YOUR FRIENDS/COLLEAGUES”, so it likes “conservative chatting”
Apparently, Zain experience in Kuwait affected the direction in a way!

At the end, the offer was not BB WOW! It was expected that at least they would provide BB service with the new touch screen device, Storm.
