    In a recent interview with the Waterloo Record, it is stated that Chen is flying to Indonesia next week for the official launch of the Z3. Whether next week is referring to the week of April 7th or the week of April 14th isn't exactly clear. Overall, it's a well written article and definitely worth a read.

    Quote about the Z3:

    Next week, Chen flies to Indonesia for the official launch of the Jakarta Z3 the new large touch-screen smartphone BlackBerry produced in partnership with Taiwan-based Foxconn for the Indonesian market.

    ...

    That's the approach BlackBerry is taking with the Jakarta Z3 and its partnership with Foxconn. Foxconn used existing technology and built a new phone priced for less than $200 for emerging markets. After its release in Indonesia next week, the phone will be rolled out later this year in Thailand and India.

    Awesome article! Looking forward to that Z3 launch

    I really appreciate the article giving different types of information regarding the company like more info on what Chen is planning with QNX, how he thinks about it and also about the ongoing layoffs
    I didn't ie. know that the 120 employees were responsible for what made BlackBerry popular or that the company is still far from completing the announced layoffs. Definitely a good read.

    I almost just posted this article, you beat me to it lol. The Waterloo Record is great for news on BlackBerry. CTV news also does a lot of stories on BlackBerry. They are both local and have good contacts within the company.

    Blackberry confirmed that report is false. It'll either launch by end of April or early May..
