However soon Nokia Ovi users in Saudi Arabia will be able to buy paid apps via operator billing.


Nokia and Etisalat have announced that consumers across Middle East will soon be able to purchase content from the Ovi Store with billing directly to their mobile phone account. The service will either be charged as part of the customer's monthly bill for post paid accounts, or deducted from their Pre-Paid airtime credit.



In addition to operator billing through Etisalat, consumers will continue to have the existing payment option via credit card. The operator billing will be available in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt during 2011 and the cooperation will be extended to other Etisalat operations in the Middle East and Africa region going forward.

H.E. Mohammed Omran, Etisalat Chairman, said: "we are certainly delighted to partner with Nokia in driving the demand of high quality applications and technology. The growth in the applications industry and the readiness of today`s consumers to adopt new technologies is a ramp curve to pursue. Etisalat is always committed to invest in leading technology with significant players and leaders in the industry. Partnering with Nokia given their industry expertise and their global know-how will aid Etisalat Group to continue our growth and reinforce our position as a technological leader in the global market place.
