At the end of the day, people become nomads because it is the most efficient use of ecological resources. For that reason, this isn't that surprising:
"Several tribes still lead nomadic lives in the outskirts of Rub Al Khali that covers about a third of the Arabian Peninsula. There are several rich oil fields of Saudi Arabia located in this desert.

"There is little vegetation and animal life in these regions. Still, in between there are pockets allowing some vegetation and animal life. The high-tech revolution that brought about an incredible transformation of human life in the modern world is not alien to the nomadic tribes living in these remote desert regions...

"During the visit to a pocket of the Bedouin tribe of Shammar, I encountered a young man called Ahmad Al Shammari. He was seen using a laptop while herding camels and sheep. He was letting his herd graze while sitting in his small Hilux pick-up vehicle, browsing the internet."
