JYB BBZ30, 20 Sep 2014Since you are a former Blackberry user, I will call you 'friend.' So, friend, c'mon dont sound... moreok if you are inviting me back to bb devices (after years ago switching from a htc hero to a bb storm 2 went awry for me as in my diary) let me ask you a simple question is bb maps effective as google maps or even nokia here maps perhaps. (i know here maps ain't no where near google maps but just asking) i dont wanna get lost here and there without proper info and whereabouts of atms and banks or other locations. or at least is there any official google maps app for bb devices ? secondly bb used to make devices that can be operated with one hand as most of the people who use those are busy business people, is the passport easy to use with one hand ? third is this device worth all the money they ask for it ? fourth is bb 10+ os so cool and feature rich as some claims it to be ? (touch keyboard is great but people want more than that) fifth is is the bb app world equipped with games that's being released for i os , android and windows phone ? lastly im guessing bb did a big mistake by releasing a bb messenger for windows phone platform as that is the only unique feature i have seen in a bb device. :)

DURABLE cons: shapeiphone 6 = Aluminum (A toxic metal linked to Alzheimer disease and brain deformities perhaps increasing the risk of Parkinson’s and dementia.) / BlackBerry Passport = Steel (Not toxic to you at all. Unless you have a tool that can vaporize steel and you intentional touch the vaporized steel.)
1. IT DOESN'T BEND
2. GREAT BATTERY LIFE
i think i'm going back to my first love..blackberry. although at first it felt like the shape is weird for a smartphone, but considering that im going to use this mostly for emails ang work. i'll probably switch back to this from iphone5s that im using.
i wont be tempted to go to social media sites.
iphones and androids are so distracting.
Remesh, 24 Sep 2014Why don't you say the word? You don't buy anything. You use a BlackBerry if someone give it to... moreRemesh. If your opinion of BlackBerry is so low that you would have to get it free to use it, then you have not properly used & Appreciated What a BlackBerry is. Also with your attitude about these Cell Phones I need to Ask you Why then are You Wasting your Time & Supposed Intelect on This BlackBerry Site. Move on to Your I Phone site & do your Mumbling over there. Your Comments are Less than Objective & very Disrespectful move along Little Negative Person Of Limited Objectivity! & Spread Your Negative Wisdom elsewhere.

NimrodCesiah, 25 Sep 2014Does passport support usb on the go?yes Passport support USB on the go...
Remesh, 25 Sep 2014How about MS Dos?Good Question Ramesh
if people expecting android and IOS on blackberry phones then we should ask MS Dos as well..
he he he heeeeeeeeee
Remesh, 25 Sep 2014It is $599 unlocked. Either you mistyped or read from a stupid source. That's in promotion, from BB store on line, actually n market 699.I think all vendors have used maximum price when debut. Which is abnoxious. Wait ad after a Qtr you realise the price drop all over, but can't do anything as already purchased it in a Lure!
coded Max, 24 Sep 2014Yes! I agree with u, if possible they should do two phones with the same specs and features bu... moreBBOS 10 can run on normal data plan..do some research on BBOS 10 device...they can actually do...no need BIS/BES...
It has hdmi out,separate power in, and with changeable sd card, perfect for any presentations. No need to lug a laptop. Great for showing personal photos, videos, utubes, or netflix on regular hdtv. Not everyone has Airplay receiver....but hdmi everywhere.
One has to go up to Macbook pro to get this.
those who never own BB device should just shut up..come on people..whoever prefer to have full bar type touch screen, just stick with samsung or Iphone..i pretty much want with physical keyboard of BB..my comment only if BB World can improve on its apps content...that BBOS itself i don't have comment, it's really good...at all time, phone you will use mainly for calling, texting and emailing...and updating your instagram & facebook..
