Nokia C3 launch causes iPhone-like queues in Indonesia

Introduced in Indonesia over the week-end, the Nokia C3 has managed to gather thousands of customers who have been waiting in line to get the new handset, forming queues similar to the ones we usually see when a new iPhone is launched.

Nokia organized a series of special events in 10 Indonesian cities (including Jakarta, Bandung and Yogyakarta), which allowed users to buy the C3 for a special introductory price.

The C3 is Nokia’s cheapest QWERTY phone (it costs about $120 unlocked) and it comes with features like a QVGA display, S40 UI, Wi-Fi, Social network integration, Ovi Mail, stereo Bluetooth, stereo FM radio, 3.5mm headset jack, 2MP camera, and MicroSD card support.

Indonesia is the first country to get the Nokia C3. The handset will be launched in other markets across the globe (including the UK, via Vodafone) in the coming weeks.
