BlackBerry Bold 9790 Indonesia launch [video]

By Adam Zeis on 22 Nov 2011 08:43 am EST

The BlackBerry Bold 9790 launch event that took place in Indonesia last week was a pretty big deal. It was the first time a device was released first in Indonesia, and many were on hand to take in the event. RIM Co-CEO Jim Balsillie took the stage to unveil the latest full QWERTY device to a very receptive crowd. It was definitely one of the bigger device releases for RIM, and the Bold 9790 looks to be a great alternative to the BlackBerry Bold 9900. Will you be picking up a Bold 9790? Have you already? Sound off in the comments!



But seriously, this looks like a pretty cool phone...can't wait to see it in North America!


It's local Indonesian fashion - yet again catering to the crowd. Good job Jim!


I'm waiting for anybody to release the phone so I can get my hands on it..


I want to see how much this phone is to buy out. Am looking at getting this one for sure if not im waiting BBX.


This is a really smart move by RIM. They've really tapped into a big market with Indonesia and made it near-exclusive by getting everyone hooked on BBM. Now they're just securing that foothold by giving the country an exclusive product launch...very, very clever.


I really like that they are attacking emerging markets in a meaningful way. I just hope they get a couple high-end BBX phones to the US and use BB7 for the emerging market until late 2012.


Nice shirts.
Hey can you guys come launch some stuff in the US and hand out free phones to the attendees?


Same old phones different year...although this bold i like more than my old 9930..that nuked twice!!!


good job RIM.. US n Canada are not the only two countries in the world..
