    So happy that finally one of the carrier here has opened a pre-order, and will deliver by mid November (14~16). Usually not long after this other carriers will join if the device is a success (and in Passport's case, I'm sure it will).

    The price is quite nice too, at about $585.

    It's quite surprising though, since ShopBlackberry and Amazon's lowest price is at $599 (aside from the coupon incident, and now it has rose to $699 if I'm not mistaken). I thought Indonesia always get a bad gadget price (Apple iPhone 5s costs $200 more than in the US).

    Isn't that pricing if you preorder via carrier?

    Yes indeed, but usually the non-carrier version will be higher for only $20-$30 (looking at other devices' case).

    XL carrier. I have no information yet on other carriers.
    Link: http://smartbuy.xl.co.id/

    It has kinda weird preorder system. If there's only 10 buyer until the preorder time ran out, it'll cost $750. If there's 45, the price will be $668. Above 50, it'll be $585. I'm pretty sure it'll hit the quota of 50 soon.

    But I might be wrong though, maybe it's only limited to 50 person, and afterwards it'll cost higher. I already signed up though.

    Weird, it's still says 0 person confirm. Where as you said your enrollment confirmed already.

    Damn. I bought it in Germany for 600 Euro. Hahaha. Should have waited for Indonesian release. I didn't expect the price to be so low. I'm Indonesian btw. Buy it! It's a very good device! :-D

    Yes I find it weird too, maybe it's not the number of people who signed up, but the number of people who has been confirmed by the carrier (step 2 or 3).

    i bought mine few weeks ago in Jakarta for over a thousand dollar..can't wait, never wait for official. official prices should be around $700 or so i guess. not sure of demand as most people never heard about it, and lots of confusing look.

    Thanks for heads up..

    That's a weird pre-order. I think if only 10 orders was made the price would be IDR 9M (normal price), for 45 orders the price would be IDR 8M and for 50 orders would be IDR 7M.

    Hmmm.. normal price is US$750-ish.. not bad for a Flagship with most recent Spec wise in Indonesia.

    Personally, I'm being cautious about this.
    The process is being handle by JerukNipis, and my recent experience with Note 4 pre-order is horrible enough to keep me stay away from them.
    It would be different story if XL give the process to some other (more reliable) handler.

    BTW, dinomarket.com is offering the passport for IDR 11.840.000 (USD 945), and it goes for less if you choose the Indosat bundling.
    Another pre-order, the one that I'm waiting for is from blibli.com. I heard that they will announced it by today, but I haven't found anything yet on their website.

    I've just opened the blibli.com, and the passport pre-order is "out of stock".
    Last time I check the website is only about 3 hours ago.

    Not sure if I should laugh or cry.
    -_-
