Etisalat, one of the largest telecommunication service providers in the United Arab Emirates, is following the lead of many wireless carriers in the USA, UK and Asia by introducing netbook packages to boost subscriber growth.
Etisalat will be offering the Acer Aspire One along with a free SIM Card, free one-month subscription on a 10GB data package and an additional discount per month for 24 months on the 10GB data package. The Acer Aspire One offered will come with a built-in Qualcomm 3G modem. Pricing is not known, but the two-year package will effectively lead to a free Acer Aspire One over the contract lifetime.
Mr. Essa Al Haddad, Chief Marketing Officer of Etisalat said, ”Netbooks are the latest trend worldwide, with many people already enjoying the portability, on-the-go connectivity and affordability of this emerging new technology. Etisalat is proud to introduce this concept in the UAE, through Acer Aspire One, a Netbook with integrated 3G functionality and full Wi-Fi capability. With the attractive sub-zero price point, the sleek and stylish Aspire One will not only provide tremendous value and on the go connectivity to our customers, but will also change the Internet surfing and consumption dynamics in the UAE.”
