Thousands queue, some fight, for the BlackBerry Bold 9790 in Indonesia


  • Alex Perrier

    Their equivalent of the iPhone 4S line-ups here in Canada. Probably only because of the prepaid-friendly price that would be great for ALL Curves regularly. Oh RIM, why do you release the 9790 there first? Why not Canada? 😐

    • PROud Candadian

      Guess what riligon these people use in that backwrods country.
      Be afraid!

  • XER

    lining up for rubbish!

  • Nessa

    So not worth lining up for…how much more fighting for it?

  • Rich

    BBX/QNX and I’ll have another glance at BB’s.

  • DOA

    They just don’t know any better.

    • Ulyssses

      As if you know

      Just like Jeff said. Just because you don’t like/use blackberry, that doesn’t mean it is rubbies. You talk like a Fanboy..grow up.

  • Pablo Moses

    This proof that BB is a good smartphone!

    • bob

      this proves nothing at all

  • Jeff

    RIM is hardly rubbish. Btw I don’t have a blackberry and I don’t prefer them, but I know many people that prefer them to either iPhones or Android or WP7. These are not stupid people and they are not ignorant (the people I know). Just because you don’t want one doesn’t mean its no good. Grow up.

    and NOTHING is worth lining up for in my opinion, not a BB, not an iPhone and not even my preference, Android.

  • Alex Perrier

    Hopefully Canada’s *9780* deal (no touchscreen and BB OS 6) is much less violent than the one in Indonesia for the 9790.

  • Jordan

    I’d like to point out the title says ‘some some’. That is all.

  • farmerpete

    I think its more along the lines of blackberrys being somewhat affordable to the Indonesian population as compared to android or iphone. Not everyone can afford to spend $700 every year on a new phone that looks the same as the year past.

  • Steve

    @farmerpete They have plenty of cheap Android phones in Indonesia, they just prefer BlackBerries.

  • Interesting

    I’m no expert on the Indonesian cell phone industry, but I’m willing to bet the data compression plays a big part in why Blackberries are so popular there.


    This is something we would never see here in Canada


      I mean for Blackberry

  • yadeed

    Well at $270 is a fair price for this product too bad is only for the first 1000 people. The rest will not be making a line to pay 540 for sure.

  • Andrew C

    And I thought people were crazy for lining up overnight for iPhones. The fighting in Indonesia is on another level of madness.
