BlackBerry 10 Launch Video from Dubai

By Alicia Erlich on 4 Feb 2013 01:09 pm EST

This past week, the CrackBerry team were all over attending the launch events in New York, Toronto, and London for the unveiling of the rebranded and reinvited BlackBerry (both the company and the new devices). Unfortunately, we were unable to take part in the festivities over in Dubai which was one of 8 countries participating. As you can see in the video above, courtesy of Avorah, the room was packed with individuals watching the keynote via the live simulcast as well as taking part in some hands-on demos as well. 

Held at the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifah, which happens to be the tallest tower in the world, you can see just how much hard work and effort was put into the launch event. While many of you are patiently waiting to hear when your country or market will be announcing availability (I know I am here in the US), keep in mind this is a global roll-out. Be sure to stay tuned to the front page as we'll be bringing you all the latest news as it happens.

BlackBerry 10 Launch Video from Dubai



I didnt know till the last moment that there was a launch party in Delhi as well.. i searched the internet for the footage, but couldnt find one.. It would b nice of Crackberry team to upload the Delhi Launch Video if possible...

Still don't understand the "Global" launch of BB10, but devices only being release in two relatively small markets.

RIM/BB should have done a launch from home base in Canada and then provided release dates for other markets and done min-launches in each of those markets as the devices became available. (or better yet - had devices ready for a real global release)

yes.i fully concur with the above comment ...there has been much euphoria round the world it on the NEW BB10.....but here in RSA (SOUTH AFRICA) NOT ONE carrier has intimated when one may expect to have a new BB 10 in ones hands...this inspite of SOUTH AFRICA being one of the biggest markets for BB outside Canada and the USA. so what gives...why the apathy. EXPLAIN please.!!

Even in South Africa? Now that is odd. Heins himself commented on the importance of making South Africa one of the highest priorities for the BB10 launch. The company has been bragging about their #1 status in that country for a couple years now. I wish they were a bit more forthcoming about the cause of the delays with the other countries.
