    I was there at Gitex 2011 shopper as well as exhibition hall in trade center, Shopper is full of school kids promoting the devices in very rash and unpolished manner, as they are not trained, just doing work for some quick bucks. Utterly annoying, they don’t even allow you to look at any of the electronic items. I was checking a LED TV, I know very well how LED works, so let me check different brands and make up my mind on one, these guys will not allow me to do so, I said I am just checking please allow me to have a look at it, a weird looking guy said OK to me and when I moved a bit closer to the TV he started explaining to me about differences in LED, LCD, LG and Panasonic.
    In another stall a kid offer me a best service by telling me he knows five different languages and what language should he be explaining to me!
    I said calmly, I just wanted you to keep quiet!
    For iPad2 outside is AED1800, in shopper AED 2250. LG LCD TV outside AED 1780 in shopper AED 2500! Of course with some worthless goodies!

    i was also faced with the same dilemma when choosing the ‘best’ smartphone. I really wanted to buy an Android or iPhone but ended up with the BB9900 from Etisalat. The data packages here are ridiculously high and the BB packages are very competitive. In the end I am happy with what I have and the 200mb was enough for me to be online 24/7 on BBM, FB and YM (and 2 email accts).
