Du What?

Du mobile, du broadband, du texting, du buy. Hmmm. Du is the long-awaited brand name of Emirates Corporation For Telephones And That Internet Thing And Faxes And Telegraphs Establishment (Branch) (Satwa) PJSC.

Interesting...

I wonder if the company's trademark 'd' and 'u' joined together is an arabic character/word? And if it is, what does it mean?

Apparently it doesn't mean anything in Arabic or English. In French,of course, it means 'of' or 'from'. No, I think what they've done here is very clever - it sounds like the English 'do': do this, do that. It could also be derived or related to 'Dubai' - although the enterprise is UAE-wide. But increasingly Dubai is a city that does. It does not sit around on its backside for ten years thinking about something - it just gets on and does it.

I'm liking this identity more and more.
