BlackBerry has launched a new low-cost smartphone designed specifically for Indonesia on Tuesday in an attempt to win back market share that has plunged in recent years but remains higher than in many other nations.

The BlackBerry Z3, Jakarta Edition, was launched at a hotel in the capital, Jakarta. The company said it will go on sale from Thursday for $191, considerably less than its higher-priced Z10 and Q10 devices.
