As we know already, HTC will be participating at GITEX Technology Week (Sheikh Maktoum Hall, Stand D10-8) to be held from September 8-12, 2007 in Dubai and HTC unveiled now, which devices the company will show and launch. HTC will be extending it's portfolio with two technologically advanced, feature-rich mobile devices - the recently launched HTC TyTN II and the previously unveiled HTC Shift. The company will also be showcasing the entire range of products introduced to this region since its launch this year, including the Advantage X7500, S710, P3400 and the hugely popular HTC Touch.

Kevin Chen, General Manager, HTC Middle East, Africa and CIS, said, "We are very excited about having a local presence with our new office in DAFZA and making our appearance at GITEX. Our participation at this event is crucial, given that we are new entrants to this highly competitive market. We are keen on making the most of the show's popularity to maximize our brand visibility and create sufficient awareness for our range of pioneering mobility devices that are creating a buzz in the Middle East markets."

The HTC TyTN II will be available at all major Middle East and African power retailers from the beginning of September. However, unlike previous information indicated, the HTC Shift will not be released at GITEX but will be available in the latter part of the year as HTC confirmed.

Cheers ~ Arne

I'm so disappointed! No new devices!? Nothing!? No Nike, Polaris, Omni or something else new? Not even the Shift, just the "old" TyTN II again sad

Yep, according to HTC's own press release it seems to be the truth... Not that I'm disappointed (we will see the devices you mentioned later this year anyway wink) but well, at least I hoped to see some new stuff as well.
And I'm awaiting the Shift as I haven't awaited a new gadget for a long time...

Well, hopefully that's true. But that means these devices won't be available until at least November if they don't announce them at Gitex.

Well, not sure. The GITEX is a regional fair for MEA. Europe and America have their own fairs and keep in mind that operators also introduce (HTC) devices but don't attend some of these fairs.
So yes, an October/November time frame seems to be reasonable.
