Its been long time im not interested with the BB phone after the Sams*ng strikedown with their Android smartphones on the market.
But this beast has refreshing my mind to go back to Blackberry again.
Must have this beast, good job RIM
The best bb and sony! Iphone fail, crap bendable scrap metal. American design recall always like their ford gm fca
bb or pp ..., 06 Aug 2015bb should put android on it other wise u are lost a lot of specs for such a bad os the only th... morehave you really used a OS 10 mate...or you are just talking about some o;d device, get your facts right mate.
Had it been narrower it would have been my perfect device.
BB OS is leaps and bounds ahead of Android and iOS for anyone who uses a phone for its intended purpose, and anyone who likes qwerty keypads (obviously willing to sacrifice screen real-estate so minimal gaming and multimedia). BB Hub is also simply amazing and brilliant.
I hope you're listening BB! You're moving in the right direction.. keep going! Focus on QA, quality specs, and comfort. This BB Passport in a narrower, more pocket friendly size, would have been a fantastic device! It would have been very functional, modernized (keypad) yet not intimidating and awkward to carry and hold!
Keep away from Android and keep developing BB OS. Make it do what your target audience want it to do, and make it do it well. Care less about the app store and make the device come with what the typical BB user would use straight out of the box. You have a strong legacy to learn from and build on, just do it!
We believe in you!!
official unboxing, 2:06, great build quality - disgusting plastic keyboard frame, ugh, prefer old design, it's better made than this silver version
bb should put android on it other wise u are lost a lot of specs for such a bad os the only thing they have is security and just that well not proved by me but just on general reviewers....the only thing i remenber of this os is the lack of languages it was terrible..u had to go trough a pc and not friendly processes in order to change a language....if u install a simply 450 kbs a[pp to it,needs to reboot first for update everything ...if u runout of battery the i have to wait really long time before it boots up so if u are in a hurry and u need to make an emergency call..if faster to go outside and ask for a phone and make the call and still bb is loading .......
It's time RIM got serious in the smartphone business. Blackberry is lagging behind Andriod and iOS in terms of high specifications, availability of apps and modernization. What is there in just changing the colour of Passport? Does it improve on the functionality? Definitely no! I am not just bashing Blackberry. I own and use BB Q10. RIM, please, wake up. you are not impressing people like me who have been waiting for newer and better models from you.
Why Blackberry guys are not paying attention to reduce the size and weight of this "loving" handset which is called as Blackberry Passport. It urgently needs to be more compact anyhow. Waiting for Andriod based Passport.
design is elegant...waiting fr new rumoured android device by bb :) hope that will b also beautiful like this
royo1e, 04 Aug 2015but love red and black combinationTrue... Red is lovely ! But at exorbitant price increase from black one.... Well bb takes another shot in dark will it be worth it? Lets see
It's looks absolutely lovely. Great to see some variety!
Really looking forward to the android qwerty phone that is rumoured to be coming. That is a pre-order for me.
ex-passport owner, 05 Aug 2015Used to have the original passport. Sold it after a month. The size and shape was very awkward... moreAs a current Classic owner, I have to disagree.
Build quality is fantastic.
Used to have the original passport. Sold it after a month. The size and shape was very awkward to use and carry. It's a shame they didn't think to narrow the device to make it more pocket friendly.
At least they fixed up the bottom corners, those things were sharp as hell on the original.
Passport aside, the build quality on my BB Classic was appalling. I don't recommend consumers waste their money on current day BB devices. There seems to be very little QA in their manufacturing plants.
