Anjum, 28 Aug 2014Since Blackberry's phone division is already in hot waters, they shouldn't keep huge margins o... moreThey should price it reasonably more so at this moment that the competition in the phone industry is becoming stiffer and stiffer by day.
We have one in our office, the build is sturdy and I'm really amazed by its performance, very fast and responsive, it's one of the best in all the mobile devices that we have so far, the square shape actually is very good for reading/viewing documents.
Have to say BB did a great job for this one.
If I wasn't bit badly by the worst BB (Storm) 5 years ago, I probably would buy the passport with no questions.
But anyway it seriously has become one of my options. My other options are OPO and MI4 or Nexus 6.
P.S. we are a mobile app company and have all kinds of mobile devices from the oldest to the most latest.
The casing is stainless steel. The back is composed of a very durable porcelain-like material, very grippy. Screen is the clearest of any phone I have tested, excellent anti-reflection. Very bright. Back camera supports 4K video recording. 720p at 120fps and 1080p at 60fps, 4K support will be added with OS 10.3.1. Battery lasted me 22 hours, HEAVY duty use. (Downloaded movies the entire day). GPU is clocked at 450mhz and RAM is 800mhz. The unit I am testing is actually clocked at 2.15mhz. They finally added proper screen protection. Does support panorama and plays every android app I throw at it as if it was natively coded. (about 90%) OS 10.3 has an equaliser (lol,finally). Connections not already named is Display Port 1.2. HTML scores are higher than any other browser. The device is highly optimised providing flawless performance. Stand out features: Screen - Design materials - Keyboard - Browser - Sound volume and quality (loudest and clearest of any "phablet" which I would call it, or smartphone. 2 stereo speakers and 4 microphones. High definition audio processing and is equiped with "dual" antennas which provides excellent reception. Oh yes, SD card support is 128GB and it looks wayyyy better in-person. Feels slightly heavy/solid but it is because of the metal casing and build materials. The white and black versions are made of different materials, I would suggest you go for black as it looks/feels better. Hope this helps to clear up any loose ends.
I hope they will be at IFA announcing this Phone and the BB Classic. Both are pure BB devices and something totally different.
hehe, 23 Aug 2014nice phone for blackberry....nice specs too, maybe the price is also nice....Come please
waiting for this passort on the market..hopw this is better than my z30..
Since Blackberry's phone division is already in hot waters, they shouldn't keep huge margins on this passport to grab customer retention.
Pls have your say on this!!!

Arash, 25 Aug 2014Anybody knows about the material of body? metalic or ...?borders of phone will be metallic and rest would be high end plastic.
Rahil, 27 Aug 2014Superb Configuration hopefully, BB wil not disappoint on price part.Passport is going to be expensive as blackberry is targeting enterprise grade customer.
Hmm...I don't really know how to deal with this: GSMArena got the specs right on a BB10 device before its release...wow.
I like it -- --I hope it comes with a real good voice activated S/W program something like 'Siri' on the Iphone and of course most importantly the price is it mainstream or will it be exclusive - October will tell !...
