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.

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.

Learn English. It helps when trying to get your point across.

69. Nikolas.Oliver

Posts: 1574; Member since: Jul 01, 2012

pls refrain from telling people to learn english in order to get their point across when you can't even get your point across because whatever you say it won't change the current state of affairs for bb, blackberry is dying, get over it, deal with it, accept it, live with it. no matter how many data/statistics whatever it is blackberry has in fact a less-than-one-percent slice of the pie (at least stateside), and please don't bring the "enterprise market" into the conversation cos that's a different topic altogether, enterprise market isnt as important as the consumer market saying that blackberry still has its feet on the enterprise market means you're admitting that bb = niche player ~

And by continually stalking me on PA you're admitting that you're a stalker. Get a life, boy toy. And you're telling me to refrain from doing something? Why don't you try and make me.
