Indonesia, The BlackBerry Nation

BlackBerry Logo

Welcome to Indonesia, the BlackBerry nation!

While people in other countries have ditched their BlackBerry phones and switched to iPhone or Android phones, Indonesians still remain loyal to BlackBerry.

Indonesians of all segments (housewives, students, office workers, drivers and even park rangers) are hooked up to their BlackBerry phones almost everywhere: in shopping malls, restaurants, schools, offices and even remote locations. Some people even carry two or three BlackBerry phones! A joke in Indonesia says that you may end up being a social outcast or labeled as uncool if you don’t have a BlackBerry.
