It looks like BlackBerry is off to a strong start in Indonesia with the BlackBerry Z3. Eric Lai over at the official BlackBerry Blog noted that the device has sold out in its first day of availability in the Indonesian capital. They even got us some shots of the main launch event at the Central Park Mall in Jakarta with the queue to get in.

Lai went on to say that:

According to my Asian colleagues, first-day sales of the Z3 were several times stronger than for our other recent BlackBerry 10 handsets. Feedback from our retail and distribution partners indicates that sales will likely continue to be strong throughout the weekend.

I am still cautiously optimistic but if BlackBerry can keep this momentum going they could start growing back market share in emerging markets. Check out our review of the BlackBerry Z3 here.

  1. When should such results in financial reports become evident, June or September 2014?

    • Qtr ended Jun 1st covers the pre-orders and 2 weeks post launch. Some analysts are looking for approximately 200k z3 for this period but I wonder if BlackBerry will break it down. They have provided less detail as the painful transition from bbos to bb10 has unfolded.

  2. Hmm I think June. Really depends on how BlackBerry has their partnership with foxconn detailed out
