I just saw the launch (and discount promo) for the 9790 in Pacific Place mall In jakarta... It was crazy!!! people has been lining up since morning... they say for first 1000 buyer they give 50% discount.
I was having lunch there when i say the commotion... been reading the spec...RAM and Processor are good.. but why no Java????
one person one phone for each buyer and payed by credit card only. 5000 queuer and it sold out 2 hours ago. the normal price is 4,6million Indonesian Rupiah for launch date(25nov) it was discounted to 50% which is 2,3million IDR equivalent to 289 USD
RIM discounted 50% for 1000 first buyer in tomorrow launching in PAcific Place, Jakarta. But officially gate will be open 6.00 am tomorrow

RIM is smart to have scheduled its first launch in Indonesia. Its their largest market and Indonesians pay much higher than rest of the world to get any Blackberry model in this country. When rest of the world is migrating towards Android and Iphone, Indonesia is still thriving on Blackberry. Blackberry has became a part of Indonesia's social life which cant be given away at any cost. With a launch of 9790 and 9380 on 25th November with a price tag of about USD 555 for 9790 RIM will march with flying colours as Indonesians will be queing up to get their favourite Blackberries. Whereas the rest of the world will lay their hands on 9790 in 1st week of December at a lower price of about USD 500.
Hmmmm i dont like its physical features. 9780 is much better than this in terms of physical features. 8gig internal mem? But the RAM? Hmmmm ...
I love BB ! Y dont u come up with a higher processor like 1gig or dual core?
Based on the spec sheet it seemed like a good smart phone (but no Java?? WTF) it is obviously better than my 9780.
but the physical design (specially those rounded upper function keys) gives away a cheap look, at a glance it looked like those cheap chinese fakes.
I wouldn't buy this phone based on looks alone.
I had been using Blackberry phones for quite a while, enjoyed using the phones. But soon after the BB server crashed, I am still not able to understand why BB server for Pune users are still working intermittently. I had a Blackberry 9780 Bold 3 Phone bought this Year in the Month of June. But was so diappointed that finally had to switch to Android. Plus the youtube is also not supported by BB. BB services are expensive, So many drawbacks and still this phone is so Expensive, Only god knows why
