However, Google Maps is available on Blackberry, and BB10 is somewhat Android compatible (the Amazon App store is preinstalled), so between that and the native BlackBerry store you should find new apps for everything you need.
I am avid user for the past 5 years.I currently possess 7.1 OS 9860 torch 2, which i brought 2 years. I had to upgrade to 10.3.1 awesome blackberry z3. I am planning to buy passport, with all the flagship specs, and awesome performance, as i heard from all my friends who are using PP. I was just now looking for comparisions against this awesome device, against mediocre iphone 6 plus, which is rated by this same platform as 5, whereas PP is rated above 8. So all you people who dont know shit about technology, and apple shitty devices, get some education, and if not then, you can't complain about the things you possibly ever have the know-how about mind-blowing Blackberry devices. I am one of the biggest followers of all things Blackberry.

BlackBerry 10 platform's differences offers a bit of challenge, still it gives a hint of familiarity. If I may use an analogy, it is like driving a different car in a country where you must use the wrong side of the road! There are certain aspects when BlackBerry Passport excels. But it also might not be suitable for certain other tasks. At the end everything boils down to what we need to do with a smartphone.

Especially for design work where a lot of processing power is required, not to mention bigger displays. However I think the utility of tablets are overrated. BlackBerry Passport could be the first step towards a right direction. Yet, the entire concept and implementation of such a phone is simply brilliant - apps gap notwithstanding.
I Had been hesitant about Buying this, as it costs a hefty buck. when i finally made my Mind and went on with it. I could easily say i have made very good Choice on selecting the Smartphone which IMO just got my eyes fixed on it the moment i saw it. I surely had questions, if i could adapt to a change (Still an iOS user), But trust me it has been one satisfying and overwhelming experience.
Aesthetics - Its rather well built to say anything.
Processing - It is Software and The Keyboard that takes the Center stage.
Camera - Good if not Great. ( Could have been Better )
Sound - Great ( But Has its cons )
Screen - Put in to use to best effort.
Keyboard - IMO 3 line Keyboard is more practical if not logical.
Media - You know what you are getting, no point Complaining about it
App Environment - Its good (some apps are missed, But mostly covered)
This is by far my experience with the BB Passport.
This is by far the world's best phone.
Don't believe me? Try it for a week (takes some getting used to) and you'll be in love!
If you need a phone for videos and games look else where for a toy

Why have a PC, a tablet, AND a 'phone? One day I want to do EVERYTHING with just ONE quality device. That's maximum efficiency to my mind, and the Passport is pretty advanced in this respect, I think. Maybe as the applications and upgrades get better, I can one day throw away my tablet and PC.
This will be the companion phone to my Nokia Lumia 1520. I will get this this June.
[deleted post]The fastest and stablest operating system is BlackBerry 10.
[deleted post]It is faster than any and all phones. BlackBerry Passport is the only newest and shiny phone now.
[deleted post]Yeah, keep looking. But you will end up buying a BlackBerry Passport at the end of all those looks. I see that you are infatuated by BlackBerry smartphones. Not bad. Not at all bad.
[deleted post]You and you both are wrong. BlackBerry Passport can reduce the use of a tablet and a PC. BlackBerry 10 is the only smooth and efficient OS in the world. Don't buy anything else.
People who wanted to buy this device and unable to purchase this device are the one who just post false things about this beautiful handset. Camera /display /hardware every thing is superb. Only one thing I would like to suggest that u have to use both the hands to use this device. Rest all is superb
Purchased this and am very glad I made the right decision. Just so Awesome the more I use the more I love it.
I was using Samsung Note 3 before and was very happy with it. But Passport is a professional phone and I love using it. Word of mouth GO and Buy One Do not hesitate a single bit. You wont regret ;)
