Third of mobiles are Samsung
EK lounge ready for business
Emirates has completed an $11 million makeover of its Business Class lounge at Concourse B of Dubai International Airport. The project took two years to complete and features food and beverage concepts, as well as a health hub. Samsung phones dominated the UAE mobile phone market in the second quarter of the year despite the Galaxy Note 7 debacle. According to the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority ( TRA) 33.3 per cent of all handsets registered in the UAE networks during Q2 were manufactured by Samsung. The second most popular brand was Nokia accounting for 27 per cent followed by Apple at 13.6 per cent and BlackBerry registering 1.8 per cent of the phones used.
