The opening of Indonesia's first BlackBerry Lifestyle store was more than just a big event to say the least. Before the doors even opened, the line was already way out of control as BlackBerry fans waited over 8 hours for their chance to check out the latest devices. Among the grand opening festivities, the first 250 people were eligible to grab a new device at 50% off which could explain some of the massive crowd. RIM Co-CEO Jim Balsillie was on hand as well to drop the curtain as the store opened and was even spotted helping out a few customers. All in all it looks like the BlackBerry Lifestyle store will be a great success in the new location. Hit the break for some more images from the event.
