Vodafone Launches iPhone in Qatar
Wireless carrier Vodafone began selling the iPhone in Qatar this weekend, furthering the somewhat slow rollout of the device in the Middle East. Qatar, Egypt and Jordan were all listed as the first Arabic-speaking countries to receive the iPhone during WWDC 2008, although it took Vodafone more than a year to begin rollout in those markets.
The devices can be purchased directly at Vodafone’s Web site, where prices start at QAR2,399 (US$658.70). They’ll be delivered by courier, or picked up at Aramex Shop & Ship locations in the city of Doha.
