It was only a few days ago that we reported about the BlackBerry Z3 hitting retailers in Singapore and once again the latest low cost BlackBerry 10 device is rolling out in another country - this time Saudi Arabia.

Priced at SR799 the Z3 is slowly gaining traction globally, although we are still to hear on when we will see the LTE variant become available. For the countries where 4G is not commonly used or not available the Z3 is a fantastic choice when it comes to deciding on a new smartphone - whether you are currently a BlackBerry user or not.

Mohammed Al-Mefleh director product management BlackBerry Middle East told Arab News: "We have been very successful in the Saudi market and with Z3 smartphone we wish to consolidate our position among the budget or affordable device segment in high-growth emerging market of the Kingdom after our successful campaign in Indonesia as we have a significant customer base here."

Pointing out its features he noted that the Z3 extends the BB10 platform to a new generation of customers in the region offering them more ways to connect share and be productive with an experience built on reliable communications.

"Z3 features a stylish design with a 5" touch display an unrivalled messaging and typing experience exceptional battery life equipped with BB10 OS version and is Android app compatible' he noted.
