Arabic television goes all in with BlackBerry PlayBook commercials

During the past month, RIM's unique and elegant tablet device has seen little if any publicity among Arabic television, but that has now come to an end. While watching an Arabic drama series with my family, I was surprised to see that the BlackBerry PlayBook was put in literally every commercial break during the day. It was not too difficult to capture the video clip above, as I could literally count the seconds before the next BlackBerry PlayBook commercial was shown again. What kind of conclusion can be drawn from this? It's both funny and interesting at the same time.

The above clip is recorded from the Arabic channel MBC, a very popular and widely known television channel across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, as well as other parts of the Middle East. The commercial itself is not new, but simply a localized version for the Arabic community. Here's hoping the rush of BlackBerry PlayBook commercials will eventually attract customers to buy the tablet in the Middle East, and why not encourage RIM to finally add Arabic support as well... since you know, it's missing.

Not so awesome, because until now RIM did not add Arabic content compatibility, and no Arabic keyboard as of today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
