    Finally they did it! I am assuming it will support Arabic, no?

    I am happy to see more and more Android-powered phone in Middle East.
    But does this phone fully support Arabic language? I think/hope so, since it is official launch by manufacturer.

    this is the question that everyone asks without clear answer from HTC 🙂

    although i heard here and there that HTC doesn’t release a phone officially in the middle easy without official arabic support

    but only time can tell!

    To say I desire one would be true .
    What review is there which says ‘don’t buy’ ?
    I have been with Nokia since I left my original phone, the Philips Genie, for the startlingly good Nokia 7110. But times have changed and Nokia is not where it should be.
    But oh HTC you wont let me transfer all my GPS waypoints from Nokia to your nice new slick device .
    I’d be really lost without them – so it’s a reluctant no to a divorce from Nokia and I live in hope that the N9 ignites my flame again for Nokia
