Thousands line up across Indonesia as people try to grab the Nokia C3

Thousands line up across Indonesia as people try to grab the Nokia C3
Sure it'd be almost unfathomable to see US consumers line up for a Nokia branded device seeing that the manufacturer still doesn't have that notoriety as it does in other parts of the world. However, the recent launch of the Nokia C3 in Indonesia was accompanied with a mass hysteria atmosphere as thousands of people across the country lined up at the chance of purchasing the handset. Now this didn't happen on its as because there were special events held across 10 cities throughout the country over the weekend where the handset was receiving a special promotional price before it landed officially in stores starting on Sunday. We'd imagine that an appealing looking QWERTY based handset that follows in the same footsteps as the Nokia E71 & E72 would definitely garner special attention – especially when a promotional introductory price accompanies it. Although Indonesians are the first to experience the new Nokia C3, it won't be too long now before other countries get it – Nokia can surely get some buzz if it holds these special events in other countries as well.
