A new BlackBerry Concept Retail Store is opening today (June 20th) in Dubai, but now we have more news. The BlackBerry Q5 will also be available to purchase too, meaning the UAE is the first country to see the third BlackBerry 10 device roll out.

The Q5 will be unveiled at the new BlackBerry Store and will retail for AED 1,499 - approximately £261/€304/$408 which sounds reasonable to me.

The all new BlackBerry Q5 smartphone features a QWERTY keyboard in a stunning, youthful design that is confident and makes it easy for customers to have fun, create, share and stay connected. Available in red, white and black, the BlackBerry Q5 smartphone offers a powerful and unique mobile computing experience with its cutting-edge BlackBerry 10 functionality. Features and apps work seamlessly together, allowing your every move to flow into the next. With its classic QWERTY keyboard re-engineered for optimized communications and its 3.1” touchscreen, the BlackBerry Q5 smartphone gives you the best of both worlds.

People of Dubai - who's heading over to the Store to pick one up?
