Blackberry is unique phone, I'm very big fan of BB, BB is useful for only intelligent peoples not for children to play games only.
AnonD-313835, 30 Sep 2014Hi Blackberry Authorities.....I have been desperately waiting for this phone and have been man... moreI hope carriers in India can offer you incentives and promotions such as affordable data plans to make up for the high price. If the device has poor sales worldwide then you will get an affordable Passport but if sales are good the price will remain high. This device cannot be compared to an iPhone because it's like a laptop and a cloud server wrapped all in one device that fits in your pocket and if you look at it that way it's a great value.
Got mine today and it heats up like a hot plate, that isn't right and isn't safe. I'm trying to return my mine with little success. Blackberry better prepare themselves for a lawsuit. I swear it's so hot, I can't hold it. Guess it will sit in its box until the end of time. It's a piece of crap. Beware. Hope no one gets hurt by this thing.
fantastic product! Best BB ever build!! farr better than iphone6! BlackBerry forever!
I have been using this phone the bb passport over a week now. I can honestly say it has been the best phone I have owned for business use. Had they Galaxy note 3 and prefer the bb passport more.

-samsung S3+ S5 mini
-sony Z3compact+ xperia E3+ xperia M
-motorola Moto G(2nd gen)+ Moto G 16 + Moto E
-iphone iphone 5+ iphone 4s (8G)

MJsuperfan, 30 Sep 2014I am a huge BB fan, I'd gladly buy this if available in Ireland but it's not.It wll available soon..
This phone is targeted towards enterprise users. The class of people that can actually afford it. Also, RIM is aware that people would eventually start buying for 'class', the good thing is, the specifications are actually worth it and if it runs fine am sure BB would be back on top in the coming years.
Passport with all its pros and cons will definitely qualify for the consideration of all the consumers.but BB if you would have kept the price, around 35k rupees you would have won the game.

I am a die hard BB fan. I am looking forward to own this phone soon. I'm totally in love with the new Bb look. Bb is unique on its own so there is no point in degrading it. You go BB !
rms, 30 Sep 2014BlackBerry is making again the same mistake because of which they had a lot of problems, selli... moreI agree that price is more than what we were expecting. But that does not make this phone behind anything. So your points like weird shape, behind other OSs ( pray how! ) etc are invalid.
Agree that BlackBerry needs to sell BlackBerry 10 os phones in large numbers so that application developers take notice and develop more applications for the platform.
Think BB passport is a great smart-phone judging by the spec, if RIM in Motion want to win buyers back to buy this BB passport,a lower price tag should be considered. In a county like Nigeria that almost everybody uses more than one phone n there's bbm on android n ios now, there won't be any needs to get a BB passport expect the price is lower that other smart-phones. So I suggested that your selling price shouldn't be more that 50k Naira in Nigeria and you will have huge market sales here. Trust me. Because BB was our 1st loved for smart-phones!
BlackBerry is making again the same mistake because of which they had a lot of problems, selling very expensive phones. Yes, indeed BlackBerry Passport is a capable smartphone, with high-end specs but this does not mean they can ask for the same price as the actual leaders in the industry. The phone looks weird though, they are still behind android and ios, lost much of the confidence they used to have, people are reluctant so I think is better to maintain lower prices to be able to compete. Lately the situation has improved because their phones got very good discounts being more competitive so this is the road they should follow in my opinion.
Dear BlackBerry authorities,why you people are not study the market mode? In this price tag do you think u can survive in the race...bulshit...think again or commit suicide.
AnonD-78239, 29 Sep 2014Awesome pcs of hardware.but I think now BlackBerry should start using android os with added Bl... moreDefinently not. I'm an Android user (who've tried iOS) and I'm really looking forward to something else. The fact that BlackBerry doesn't produce Android phones, but keeps Android compatibility, is a big plus for me.
