    Default Hands on Passport, comparing size

    One hand typing is really difficult ,quite impossible . As you can see below Iím unable to reach the P letter with one hand as asked earlier by nah.uhh. I canít imagine myself driving and typing (although it is not safe) . it looks a bit strange when putting in my ear making a phone call due to its size . Besides that ,itís a good phone ,really responsive .Scrolling on the keyboard is so interesting and useful .

    It shrinks every time I see it.....


    Your pictures didn't do it much justice with only the Passport having the glare from the overhead lights.... I assume that is due to the positioning and not the screen it's self.

    The one handed typing is the part that keeps me from making a final decision. I love my Q10 and type one handed a few times a day. I can probably do without one handed typing if I must.

    for me the PASSPORT isn't a one hand device.

    Posted with my Z10 or Z30! ..mostly on my Q10. ..while looking forward to a BB slider and of course waiting for the Passport and Classic.

    Sounds like either you haven't used it, or you have used it with two hands.

    Just seeing it in your hand, did make it seem smaller. And that possibly one handed usage would be possible. But in other pictures with people with "normal" sized hands ... it didn't seem like that would be the case.

    Still think a Z10 sized screen with a slide-out keyboard like the Torch would have been a more productive form factor. There are just so many times that one handed typing is a must. If I have to use two hands, I might as well use a tablet.

    I wonder if you turn the phone 90 degrees so the keys are all on the right, if you could type sideways.
    (E.g . Instead if the bottom right of the phone in your Palm, yoy would position the phone with the bottom left in your Palm.

    Naturally our fingers can reach further up and down, than left right. So if you practice, maybe you can type sideways?

    Yikes. Thanks for showing your device identifying numbers, your face, and name.

    Shouldn't be too long now before the thread is closed, and you have a heft fine in your hands.

    While some can appreciate you sharing - it wasn't worth losing so much over.

    We wish you luck - sorry to be the party-pooper

    Obviously we've all seen the device a million times now.

    The issue is blatantly showing the device identifying numbers with no regard to the consequences by violating an NDA.

    Let's just say the last folks to be so ignorant lost their jobs, or got someone else fired - and had to deal with HUGE fines.

    Hi jdesannees:
    Have you had the opportunity of testing the phone signal reception (its capacity of establishing a call in low signal areas)?.
    Thanks.

    Thanks for your quick reply. I like the phone (I am discovering the brand. I come from Apple and I am fed up with its poor signal reception. Mi current Z30's is far better) and I am ready to buy it provided its signal reception be at top level. Please, keep us informed of the phone behaviour in basements or garages.
    Thanks again for sharing.

    I still wonder what makes people think about passport except the novelty factor. Its not aesthetic nor practical. Not for me at all.
