For the good folk of Indonesia who have been waiting to get their hands on the BlackBerry Z30 that time is quickly approaching. BlackBerry have confirmed at a launch event that the BlackBerry 10 flagship will be hitting stores on November 23rd. 

Indonesia has always been a strong market for BlackBerry so I see no reason why the Z30 shouldn't be as successful there as it is in other regions. Let's hope they do some marketing as in many places that seems to be rather sparse - take note BlackBerry!
