After harassing Alghanim Electronic’s X-Cite hotline for the past several days, I’ve gotten tired and annoyed by the fact that I don’t have the Blackberry Bold 9900 in my hands right now. It all started when I got an optimistic reply from the first guy I talked to over the phone. He said that X-cite had run out of stock but that they should have the device in stock again within three days (that conversation took place exactly three days from now). I called again yesterday and I got a rather different reply: “We don’t know when we’re getting it. Maybe a week.” Very unhelpful especially when you throw in that maybe and we don’t know. I called in again today (yes, I be killin’ ’em XD) and a guy told me that they still don’t have it in their stores but that they’re expecting two shipments this week. How accurate are those claims? Nobody knows. I continue to vent my frustrations on the current BB 9780 I purchased from Electrozan a year ago (which was sold to me with a defective keyboard but wouldn’t admit it/exchange it for me – a story which I will definitely voice on this blog soon).
UPDATE: I just called The European Phone (“الهاتف الأوروبي”) and they said that they DO have the phone and are selling it for 250KD. So if you’re that person that would shell out 250KD when everyone else is selling it for less than 200KD, I dedicate the following video to you:
