Check out this Indonesian ad for the BlackBerry Z3
Ah! The universal language of love. Take this ad for the just released BlackBerry Z3. Two guys. Two girls. Will the sparks fly? Not until one of the guys pulls the BlackBerry Z3 out of his pocket. The phone is the first to roll off the Foxconn assembly line as part of a five year deal between the contract manufacturer and the Canadian company. Foxconn designs, builds and stores the phone. BlackBerry supplies the OS and its glorious name and the profits are split. Only low-end models for emerging markets are covered by the deal.

The BlackBerry Z3 was launched on Tuesday, and with a trio of carriers in the country already selling out their pre-orders, it would appear that the handset is off to a great start. BUZZ! Sorry, we used those same exact words when all of the glowing reports came in following the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 in the U.K. and Canada last year. And the manufacturer ended up having to write off nearly a billion dollars worth of units collecting dust in the warehouse.

The second video in the slideshow below includes one that shows a long line of Indosat customers waiting for their BlackBerry Z3. Has BlackBerry hit a home run here with their first Foxconn developed handset? Once burned, twice shy. Perhaps we should wait to see some official numbers from BlackBerry before we jump to any conclusions.

Speaking about conclusions, how did our four youngsters, uh, make out in the Z3 ad? You can find out by viewing the video below.

Nokia will revive in 2016. Don't worry!. Many many people want and love Nokia, but BlackBerry sucks and no one wants it, just the little trolls fan base.

But more importantly, you're admitting to stalking me on the Internet. That's SICK. Sorry to burst your bubble, but you're not my type. I shall now report you to the proper authorities.

Not surprised for Indonesian market as known as Blackberry Nations.. My country awkward tradition if related to Blackberries handset.. they buy and they show off even doesn't know what features inside.. you may know when visiting Indonesia, take a look for random teenager using Blackberry, only BBM they will ever use whatever the BB model they owned. And don't panic if they can't (or didn't know) how to send email with their BB. No offence but that's the reality in my country. Sorry if my English is bad.

South-east Asians in general have a habit of thinking they are not like others, i odnt know why but thats how it is. Go some more years back, when Nokias marketshare was in free fall worldwide, both Indonesians and Filipinos kept posting that "Nokia is so strong here, our people love it, Nokia will never fall here, this is Nokia territory", and shortly after Nokia did indeed fall, first in Philippines and then in Indonesia. As usual it turned out that they were just like everyone else, but noone will ever admit to it, the traditional belief that "its different here" is burried too deep in the South East Asian mentality.

Couldn't agree more, back when blackberry was still sitting in the throne here people were so obsessed with blackberry, everyone wanted one coz if you didn't own one it would be very hard to communicate with others.

Ever since bbm landed on ios and android things have changed significantly, now more and more people are gradually switching to android or ios. Blackberry, what was once a status symbol here is now a source of shame, heck even my once blackberry fanboy friend is now rocking an iphone (albeit, the 4 one)

People, particularly teenagers bought blackberry for the sole purpose of being able to use BBM, they didn't give a fuss about what processor it had, what type of display it was, as long as i can use bbm everything is fine and dandy
