Indonesians love blackberry

This one is a funny story.
While I was in the United States, I didn’t have one friend who was using a blackberry phone. Not even one. Back in Jakarta I see blacberry phones everywhere.
It seems to me, a lot of people (from all ages) in Jakarta use blackberry. I can name more than 10 friends who use blackberry.
I don’t know what’s the condition right now in America; whether or not more people have used blackberry phones, but what I saw was that only people who were real busy and important (like businessmen) used blackberry in America. Here in Indonesia, it’s a usual thing to see a 15-year-old boy carrying this advanced gadget.
I guess we Indonesians just love to get connected. No wonder Nokia is the number 1 cellular brand because it’s connecting people. The reason why I say that is because most people I know use blackberry for chatting with their friends and updating their Facebook status. Don’t laugh, it’s true.
But as a person who hasn’t been in love with blackberry, I find it very annoying to be with someone who’s using a blackberry. That stupid phone beeps all the time. It beeps for a new message, it beeps for a new chatting line, it beeps for a new e-mail, and it beeps for a new Facebook message. Damn.
I’m not trying to make Indonesian blackberry users look stupid. If you like the damn gadget, please have fun. Even Obama is a fan (something that upsets Apple guys).
