Ludo, 29 Jun 2014They are dead.Oh really? If they were dead, why wouldn't be able to produce another device. So what exactly are you on about?
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2014non- removable battery? fail!why that is a fail? there is no need to remove the battery if is a good device.
GSM Arena is right about corporate users, but also any person that values their privacy and also Governments and sensitive corporates. You have to be crazy to use Android when this website and others reported Google itself saying Android was made for (so called) ease of use and not for security. Even Samsung cannot make its devices secure and all that Android spyware! But geeks dont care as long as they can play their cheap games and waste all day in the app store trying to find something useful to offset their boring dull life. Specs? Yes some wonderful advancements, but gee even this passport could play Android games if you want, so why is this website so anti BB. Where are mobile phones going - a new Android OS? Sometimes I dont understand the thinking or comments of this website. You seem to be stuck in a time wharp.
I don't think they researched on the LG Vu before they decided to make this device.

Most people go for a phone that's relatively cheaper but can do all they need it to do.
re: tumbs and unconfortable
I've never read 2 sentences from an iphone and android user that wasn't grammatically incorrect or riddled with misspellings, BB10 is the best communication device by a landslide, physical or virtual keyboard, you will communicate more effectively with bb10.
The original comment suggests that they don't believe the phone "eclipses" the iPhone 4.

The Passport is bigger. Put the Passport over the iPhone, you will not see the iPhone. Therefore the Passport eclipses the iPhone. What are you talking about.
to all you guys who don't know the reason behind the passports keyboard, this is it!
the physical keyboard in the passport is physical as well as capacitive like your iphones! you can rub on the keyboard to scroll and you can swipe to the left to erase words, flick up to autocorrect and use 2 fingers to select more words.
the 4th row of keys has been left out as these keys are virtual and pop up hen you need them to , for example during typing password etc! this phone is gonna be a monster and the keys are actually very cool to type on

Blackberry, don't kill yourself in trying to come up witg crazy designs in the name of innovation, just switch to android os and you shall be saved ..........

To eclipse something means that one is much bigger than anot... morethis website has always had it in for BlackBerry, any phone beside an iPhone 4 is gonna 'eclipse' it, that phone is really short, had he put an iPhone 5/5s beside it, it would have shown that its about the same length as the 5/5s and people wouldn't have the need to make stories like this up, i'm going for the Classic when it comes out but i'm definitely interested in seeing and maybe trying out this phone.
This phone is diferent, powerfull and special because its different, if you want an iphone, go and buy an iphone but why do yo want blackberry dead? must be a place for blackberry smartphones over there because they are useful for some kind of people, like those that use cellphones to work. The integration with amazon store in blackberry 10.3 will became blackberry 10 in a competitive OS as relates to apps.
if the keyboard is confortable i will buy this phone. i had an iPhone, a samsung galaxy and im so bored of apple and samsung. This is diferent and more useful.
