To keep the argument going, I want to say why I think the Passport is a progressive device. Having upgraded from a Z30, and using the Passport for 3 months now, these are the basic improvements.
1) I can email and text much easier by having a physical and electronic augmentation allows me to see many typing characters at the same time.
2)The wide screen lets me manage my inbox more easily by showing things like 'delete'and 'file' on the right. Also,the screensize frees up congestion of the presentation of webpages so they're easier to read, etcetera.
3) Using the phone horizontally makes scrolling a real doddle. No more does my fingers have to hide part of what I'm scrolling. I can truly zoom through things.
4) The battery life is phenomenal, especially if you use the phone with the idea of conserving power such as switching off directly afer use.
Even though the novelty has died for me after 3 months use,with a rational mind I still say it's a gamechanger in concept. True technological progress moves in small steps, I believe, not ballyhoo and hype.

It often annoys me that I still have to find out many simple tips, making my BlackBerry phones better to use, by accident from other users like your good self.

If you have a real paper passport, try to put it in to your pocket and see for yourself. BlackBerry Passport is exactly the same size of your paper passport.
I thought that the posting rules stated that the comments were supposed to be in English. Some of you aren't really following those rules.
I have a question... I have a Z10 and I'm thinking about switching to a PP. Is this a big step up from the Z10? My biggest concerns are battery life and size. If the phone fits in my pocket I'm happy. Is the PP physically too large to carry around? easily? How often does the phone need to be charged?

It's easily and by far the best phone I've ever seen or used. Just holding it and using it is a premium experience that no other phone can deliver. If your looking for a business phone then there is no other, the 'hub' (universal inbox) is a must and without it your simply not working at your best and fastest. Try one, give it a week to get used to it, fall in love.
[deleted post]what happened to your aliens. ran out of gas?

I bought a blackberry passport 2 months back. good phone but had to do a security swipe. Since then there has been battery calliberation problem. It shows very less duration remaining. I did a swipe again with full charge but no use. Kindly tell me how to callibrate the battery again so that it shows the proper time left for discharge. thanks
