GITEX Technology Week kicks off on October 8 - 12 in Dubai and according to reports coming from local media there, BlackBerry Mobile will be on hand to showcase their products and solutions. As reported by ITP, François Mahieu, Global Head of Sales for BlackBerry Mobile, will provide an overview of their strategy and outlook for 2017 during the opening day of the show.

Right now, the information doesn't mention anything about any device announcements, just that BlackBerry Mobile will be showing off the BlackBerry KEYone and the all-new BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition at booth Z-G22, in the Gulfcomm Hall, but savvy folks will remember François Mahieu is also the representative who noted the next BlackBerry device from TCL would be coming at some point in October.

GITEX Technology Week seems to fit that timing nicely. Guess we'll have to wait and see if any further announcements come out of the event or in the lead-up to the event. What do you folks think? Time for a new device announcement?
