It seems that there's a distinction between phones for communicating words and idea, 'word phones', and 'picture phones', phones for graphic use, games and so on. I'd like a 'picture phone' simply because they look more fun. But I can't use one instead of my Passport because they simply don't let me communicate so well. We all know thatt fun things sell better, which is prpably why I don't many around on the streets.

zacedy, 20 Oct 2015why it dont have trackpad? tarckpad? you can use the keyboard as a trackpad. those tiny keyboards are touch sensitive dude

No trackpad? stupid, it is touch screen. Don't make sense? please read tech
zacedy, 20 Oct 2015why it dont have trackpad? Classic has. Or u can navigate using your keypad
Blackberry Passport is the ultimate device I never thought that I would fall in love with this device. Here's the reason:
>Design- Its very unique in shape and sleek looking , head turner overall it standsout.
>Functionality- Docs to go help you browse and do quick edit, especially if your about to send documents or do power presentation.Plus Blackblerry Blend, Blackberry Hub.
>Web Browser- It's smooth and fantastic. You use the keyboard for various functionality that helps a lot. It has an auto reader which is helpful if your tired reading things and wants to listen over and over.
>Battery- Freaking massive, literally you can use the all throughout the day and I'm talking about browsing,gaming,messaging,non stop. Its not power hugger.
>Sideloading (Androidapp)- Yes you can do this.This is sldo one of the reason why I bought it beacuse you can download instagram and other android app. There is delay but who cares its doesnt use the original os anyway thats why. But why would you use your fone for gaming perhaps you want tio play sometime but not like series type of game I rather get portable player if thats the case.I like to use my fone for gaming especially in idle moment buit not all the time which made me realize that this fone is just perfect for me.
>Music Speaker- Its very Loud and solid.
>Camera- Its perfect it can capture clear pic, no need to edit if its instagram photo the square capture is just perfect for it. There are several features like panorma, timke shift and different ratio as well depending on your reference.
Overall Awesome Performance,
Ps: Im an Android and Apple user previously and hated BB before.

Google Play or whatever it is is designed for Android. So why are you crying about that issue? BlackBerry is BlackBerry lady. If you wanted an Android, the go buy one. Stop crying about nonsense stuff. Go and use your brain to research for resolution! FYI, other users especially Android users do some research too on how they will get an answer for their confusions! If you wanted BB then wait for the PRIV!
I'll wait for your opinion with that device.
I don't understand why people are banging on about applications for the Passport. Between the applications provided by Blackberry World and Google Playstore what more could you need? If you're having problems installing Playstore follow Cobalt's instructions on Crackberry. I find that Android apps run smoothly without any problems. I can make purchases too through Playstore and the individual apps.
The phone itself is fantastic. Set up your email account(s) with IMAP, use services like Google Calendar or Outlook.com and everything syncs perfectly (although I had to fiddle with the timezone a bit).
It's easy to manage multiple open apps. The battery is excellent as is the display and sound. But it's the keyboard that draws the most envy from my Samsung and iPhone toting friends. When they see how easy it is to type, delete, change caret position and how the Passport auto-suggests words that I use - I can almost write whole usable sentences now with only the auto-suggest feature.
You can see that this phone has been design and developed with business needs in mind. If you are using a phone primarily for playing games and chatting then this might not be the best fit for you but if you're out a lot and need to keep up with work then this is perfect.
Someone was complaining about Documents To Go. That person should check what the application does - it is not a full office suite. If you want to be able to create documents with all the bells and whistles then install an app to do it (OfficeSuite 8, Google Docs, etc). Personally I find that Documents To Go does the job for me - I write full documents on my computer and everything looks good. It's only when I'm out that I find out there's some text missing or spelling mistakes and DTG allows me to edit these small details.
Oh, and, Blackberry Blend - fantastic!!!

Did you learn English in school or were you heating with other students and your teacher?
Btw I didn't say you can install all apps. If I did please show me.
Priv is the phone for you so you can use your banking application and your android apps as it's made for an android phone then you will be happy as happy as you can be.

You said after installing Google's play store we can install all android apps on passport. For that I replied with out google play service app, most of google play store app won't work. BAD NEWS IS WE CANNOT INSTALL GOOGLE PLAY SERVICE APP ON BLACKBERRY 10 devices. And android apps will lag too much on blackberry 10 phones. because android apps are designed for android phones...
