People that need a phone for business love his phone. Too big for me though. Going to stick to my Z10 while waiting for the next full screen flagship. Wife has the Z30 and it is VERY nice. Passport is built around communications (e-mail, phone, etc) and is work centeric. That's the whole point of the wide screen (work wide, not tall) .... it makes it easier to read e-mails. And people are reporting one and a half days of battery life under heavy use (work use, not games and movie watching).
It's not a repurposed toy (this is what iPhones and Androids are). This is built from the ground up around security and getting work done.
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2014Wau....So antique... Woohoo.. like how an Alfa Romeo 3 series or Cadillac ATS-V is antique. Just 4 wheels and a steering.!! Oh, BlackBerry Passport can be used even to make calls and send text messages. OMGOMGOMG..!!!
I have been using Z10 for the past 6 month. Before this, i used Iphone 5. First thought is blackberry is crap cause i have used BB Curve and it is rubbish. Than i change to Z10 and surprisingly it is fun although some lag issues and battery issue. Now i'm using passport and its far better than z10...not regret buying BB Passport

Reading the reviews since it's release, one thing stands out to me. if the Passport is used as a standard smartphone, it's big. If it's used as phone and a small tablet combined into one box, then it's tiny (tablets are twice the size), I may be wrong, but I personally call a future in which we only need to have one device to carry around with us in life the Holy Grail, so I'm biased.
Please give up as promised Blackberry just walk away and leave the mobile phone world with your head up..Tanks..this is just too embarrassing!!!!
