Too much love for a BlackBerry

November 26, 2011

According to news report from Kompas, there was a riot in BlackBerry 9790 launch event at Pacific Place mall in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. Four people fainted, and a person sustained a broken bone, it took 200 cops to handle the crowd and ended the event early. The reason why they went crazy was because of “a token of gratitude” from RIM to loyal Indonesian CrackBerries:

“We’re giving 50 percent discount on the new smartphone for the first 1,000 customers,” said Rohilesh Singh, RIM’s Managing Director for Indonesia.

I guess they really like BlackBerry over there, a lot.
