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.
Anxious to get the handset in my pocket,hope u rectify all the setbacks in this handset.
All the best for BLACKBERRY PASSPORT.
Hi Blackberry Authorities.....I have been desperately waiting for this phone and have been managing with the Blackberry Curve as I only use Blackberry. However, specifications and looks are brilliant and certainly looks like a super phone to me. Having said that, I would not shy away from saying that it is over priced. I would say it should not be more than 40K or if not less. You plan a comeback in the market, we all professionals in India welcome you with your phone but Why will someone spend 50K on blackberry and not buy a ios or android for that matter which are compatible and universally acceptable to global mobile application. The only reason, I will go for this phone even if it is for 50K is because of the manual keypad as I hate touch phones, reason if you are having some Indian curry with your drinks in your car, becomes impossible to touch the screen and answer a call....:p Sorry to be humorous on this forum, but for your survival sake, reconsider the price or you are inviting your failure again and may be complete shut down even if you hire a Nassa Scientist as your next CEO.......Cheers!
Look forward to your response and revised deal for the passport......
If BlackBerry want to be return in smartphone market. Then they need a plans like Motorola .....
Having read AlL the comments on the Passport I suspect that the expectations for a smartphone are too high. Simply, no device can do, and be, everything to everyone.Thus, every maker LOSES whether the device is very good or very bad. That said, I like the passport,
I am really a BlackBerry Lover.at the moment I am having Z30 which I bought in March 2014 and it's cost me 39 K so Passport must come with Low price.
High price really,go buy samsung or iphone cheep,this people came
back to buy BB phone not bcs of quality or speces,they expect from BB of price reduction as company that want to get back costumers selling cheep phones.This phone awesome with out using it,just try any phone with BB 10 OS and you will get the point of advantage.
Blackberry look like better than iphone6. Beautiful design and American Standard Executive look.
This phone worths any price.. ppl can pay big amount for phone with low specs & bending.. but they cnt afford same amount for great phone
leinir, 29 Sep 2014Good bit of googling, except for a fairly important thing: BB10 is not BBOS, it's based on QNX... moreLinux and OpenBSD developed from the 90's, But Linux is older. So what are you trying to prove? That these are not based on older software? (It's like trying to say a company is newer because the original boss died and a new boss was assigned.)
Initially did not like the phone due to the way it looks but now used it and feel its an absolutely brilliant device. one of the best specs available in the market. I am loving this device for reading, camera, screen resolution, medical uses (can even watch scan results), BlackBerry hub, opening up viewing my presentations, browsing speed is awesome, processr speed is like a super phone. Worth having this phone. Just buy and forget about any upgrade for few years
