BlackBerry Z3 in Saudi is cheaper than in the UAE…

If you fancy a BlackBerry Z3 you might find it strange that the Z3 is cheaper in Saudi Arabia on the same retailer as it is in the UAE.

Axiom Telecom is offering the phone there for 799SAR which equals 783AED as per today’s exchange rate. That is more than 100AED less! I believe if they would price it here on 799AED the phone would sell like hot cakes. As of now the phone does not sell well according to staff in the Dubai Mall store. The pre orders where low and you got your phone quicker just walking in to buy it than if you would pre order… That tells a lot…

IMG_7777There are surely reasons for this as import taxes or whatever. It is just nevertheless frustrating to see that a potential good phone is not selling because of this price difference….

Asking Axiom they blame the exchange rate… Do your maths better guys…
