Update 6: This could be the final update. iPhone 3GS in Saudi Arabia on November 7th. If you did not receive an SMS from mobily then you might have a problem with your pre-order!

Update 5: Mobily iPhone 3GS prices and release date. SaudiMac is having server problems from the webhost and we are working with them to get it back up.

Update 4: Mobily did not send an SMS regarding the iPhone 3GS until now, so there is a possibility that the iPhone 3GS won’t be released October 27th as expected. Did Etisalat UAE decide to abandon their Saudi partner?

Update 3: Mobily is now taking orders for the iPhone 3GS. موبايلي فتحت باب حجز جوال الآيفون الجديد في موقعها.

Update 2: Mobily issued a press release that they will release the iPhone 3GS (nothing new there).

Update: Etisalat has confirmed that they will launch the iPhone 3GS on the same day.

It is all but officially confirmed, the Apple iPhone 3GS will be available in Saudi Arabia officially by Mobily.

Etisalat and du in UAE are taking pre-orders for the iPhone 3GS. Du made a deal with Axiom, which is odd considering that Axiom is decieving Mobily and Apple in Saudi Arabia.
