Mobily launches new BlackBerry Torch 9800 in Saudi Arabia

Mobily further enriched the lives of its customers by launching a new BlackBerry handset, the Torch 9800, which helps users communicate and manage their businesses more smoothly. Research in Motion’s latest device takes the Canadian company’s user experience to a whole new level, with a feature set and user interface that are set to revolutionize the Smartphone industry. The 9800 easily integrates with social networking websites while offering powerful business tools with a classy, elegant appearance.

Along with the new handset, Mobily offers its buyers a three-month free subscription to the unlimited BlackBerry internet package. Subscribers only need to send the word “BIS3” to 1100, and they are set.

Navigating the device is via both its large touch screen and BB’s trademark trackpad, along with the 35-key sliding QWERTY keyboard, which provides ideal balance while texting. The handset supports 3.5G globally, which means that the 9800 offers Mobily’s subscribers unhindered connectivity around the world, as well as fully exploiting Mobily’s 3.75G home network, the biggest in the Middle East.

The handset also offers every other connectivity method, from 802.11b/g/n wireless support to built-in GPS. Shutterbugs are fully catered for with a five-megapixel camera and eight gigabytes of memory.

The Torch 9800’s full specifications can be seen at www.mobily.com.saLast month, Mobily scrapped the 2-gigabyte cap on its BB service, making it unlimited while keeping the SAR 99 monthly fee unchanged. The move opened up whole new possibilities to the company’s business and individual subscribers with unlimited chat and communication and multimedia exchange. They can also browse up to one gigabyte’s worth.
