Shuffle Magazine reports:

In a full page ad in this morning’s Gulf News, Etisalat announces that they will be brining the iPhone to the UAE at a later day. The ad reads:

The UAE’s Emirates Telecommunications Corporation – Etisalat today announced that they have signed an agreement with Apple to bring the iPhone 3G to the United Arab Emirates and to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through Mobily later this month. More information will be released at a later date.

You’ll recall that neighboring Egypt disables GPS on all local and roaming iPhones as per national policy.  There is no word yet on whether or not other Middle Eastern carriers are forced to do so as well.  If we had to guess we’d say yay in UAE and nay in Saudi Arabia.  But we don’t know nothin’

For you right to lefters:
