Global technology giant Microsoft is launching its first ever Arabic-enabled phone at the end of October, around the same time it launches the latest version of its Windows operating software.
Windows 8 will launch worldwide on October 26 as Microsoft begins an exclusive global tour promoting the new software, culminating in a local launch in Dubai on November 19.
The new software will work across all desktop, laptop and tablet platforms and will be available across several mobile phone devices.
Windows 8 will come with several free local applications already installed, specific to the region where the software is bought.
Microsoft revealed the news at this year’s Gitex – the biggest ICT event in the MENA region.
