I thought we were kind of over the whole Blackberry thing, but apparently riot police were summoned in Indonesia to pacify a pissed off crowd of 3000+ after the the 9790 model was sold out at a special 50% off launch event. Here’s a link to the full story.
This whole “launch” shit on electronics seems a bit immature and silly when you look back on the whole affair:
The PS3 $799 at launch
The first Apple iPhone $599 at launch
Microsoft X-Box (first gen) $599 at launch (not the 360!)
Sega Saturn game system $399 at launch
I think you get the idea…
