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.

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.
As for Configuration is concerned it is really good.All blackberry lovers will really enjoy dis product if this price has a little decrease.. in little words its awesome....
we are also waiting for passport and hope it will be perform perfectly. it's looks like a perfect device but we don't know about the app store..
