I am starting to fall in love with the Blackberry Passport! I was a loyal BB user before. The last time I used a BB was back in 2011 or 2012 with the 9780 then I switched to Android and WP but now that Android releases phones too often whether high end or not and that is a let down especially for those who own high end Android devices. With Blackberry, atleast I know how their trend works and I really miss it! I love the white Passport! I wanna get one this holiday season! :)
danielcalutul, 02 Oct 2014If you think like that u are a snob. How u can think like that? Blackberry are power user but ... morei think the price is spot on. considering it has all the latest specs, even added innovative touch-sensitive keyboard that works like mousepad, 13mp with optical image stabilisation, which is, spec-wise, better than iP6. but do people whine on the overpriced iP6? i know iP6 has that flexible bendable display feature, but Passport works great even without that.
Danny, 02 Oct 2014In Spain for the price Blackberry passaporte(€700) we can buy -blackberry Q10+Z10+9720+9229... moreHello dear friend, you have mentioned that you would be able to buy 4 phones with the price of bb passport. But, you will never get such beastly configurations on any of the phones you mentioned before. Its really a beast.
manishparwal, 02 Oct 2014it is good and seems to be great. but I think its price is too high,so pls do somethingStop complaining about the price! Passport is reasonably priced, for the value you get! Is iPhone 6 too expensive? Is Samsung S5 too expensive? LOL! This is not a Curve, people! It's a Top End device, with Top End features & benefits, for Top End Users!! If you want it, pay the price! It's not a toy for playing Candy Crush, or flashing in public like what Fandroids and iSheep do! LOL! It's an avant garde productivity tool, and will become the benchmark in handheld productivity devices! Well Done, JohnChenBerry!
Great phone! dont use my tablet that much because of the screen size. BBry-PPT works for me! :)
It is so funny that the letters are on physical keyboard and others on the virtual. I think the industrial designer has certain brain problem that force me give up.
Finally, The best business cell to date!
Extremely good battery life and Sick design with keyboard.
Because of lack of games.. Might be the best for kids.
This beast offer much more then iphone and cost less,good job BB,this what we need on the phone market.
I really sorry to hear that my dreaming BB passport can not run Khmer Unicode font, and I will decide to use this phone if BB team develop its software to support Khmer language.

Mine's on order, but I won't get my mitts on it for 4weeks, due to it's popularity. You've already told me it will do the job. Thanks.
Danny, 02 Oct 2014In Spain for the price Blackberry passaporte(€700) we can buy -blackberry Q10+Z10+9720+9229... moreEveryone is ready to get an iPhone for the same price even its specifications is lesser than blackberry passport, why you guys hesitating to get this device which will give you really awesome performance and most of all this device is not priced as high as an iPhone 6
I week after this phone's release, I had a thought. All sorts of people use smartphones,and those who dream of being rich and doing nothing are the majority.this would explain the almost hostility to productive devices. So only the minority of people who like work will enthuse over BlackBerries for what it stands for. Nevertheless, if lovers of productivity are only 2% of the population, that's a huge market worldwode.
Ive been using the Passport for 4 days now, and have totally forgot about my past blackberry os 10 phones, the z10 was nice, the z30 was big, but the passport is productive, my text entry is faster as I can still see what i type,with the huge screen, this is the new age PDA, which were tools for professionals over 10 years ago, sadly the smartphone killed the PDA, but I am so thrilled that the Passport has brought back the advantages of a PDA merged into a smart phone. Did ia also say this phone is very powerful, forget about specs, the stereo speakers are better than my LCD tv, you can get so emersed in a movie by the sound, download a copy of star wars episode 4 and switch off the lights, you wont want to stop until its over....its amazing....enjoy to the luck 200,000, I can say I was one of the few to purchase the phone as soon as it was made available after the Passport conference....
The Passport is amazing... and I dont care if blackberry outsells or even makes profit from these phones, the only thing I care about is having the best phone with me for MY needs.. All I care about is a practical, fun, user friendly, durable, long lasting phone that is a good investment for the next 2 years as I use it for calls, texting, emails, tweeting, watching vids and etc.
I dont need a fingerprint scanner(apple) or a heart rate monitor (Samsung) on the phone..
The Passport's screen, keypad, and processor speed/specs, ans updated software are amazing.. Finally Blackberry added simple things.. like a button (on the screen) for the camera. This was missing in the Q10, so whenever I was out somewhere and gave the phone to any passing stranger to take a picture of me and my wife, they wouldn't know where to press on the screen to take the picture.
Youtube was also not great to watch on my q10 because I could not go back or forward in the video without a long lag, the passport got rid of all this lag, finally SPEED.
I will say I still love my q10 and it still fits in my pocket easier than the passport, but I gave that up easily to get such a nice screen. The battery on my q10 was also perfect, but this is even better..
All smiles from me so far, now I just want to find a rubber case for it.
