    Well I guess i'm the only one who's not in love with the keyboard. That's fine. But when I tried the priv's keyboard which many dislike and I thought it was better, that should tell you everything you need to know. To each his own.

    Well, then I agree. I have only checked out the Priv at an ATT store but my immediate reaction to that keyboard was, "You've got to be kidding me."

    This is where not having the product in stores can hurt. I would have to buy one to see if I want to use it.

    You really can't appreciate how small the keys are on the KEYONE until you see and use it up close and personal. I know I'm biased to the passport, but it doesn't even compare to the classic. That's what was so disappointing. Otherwise, everything else seems solid.

    The width of the keyboard on the Classic and the KEYone is exactly the same. The height is slightly less.

    I run in my Five Fingers, so I guess that I am in a small group that has the Five Fingers and a Passport?
    Probably just you and me, PERIOD. May start a thread just to see. How many peopel have talked to you about your FiveFingers, for me it is definitely more than the Passport.

    The keys are shorter. I know this because I played around with the device and payed attention to size of the keys.

    That's not juse in pkb. Even VKB button heights are shorter compared to bb10 vkb. I had dtek50 and my z30 typing experience was better!

    Truth is that blackberry securing android by hardening it, makes android less secure. Android is supposed to be open so you can root it, and add a custom rom lol. All the android devices I own don't have Google play services on them. I remove all Googles app including transport, sync, services, playstore etc. That's the only way I run android that makes me feel a bit better.

    Because custom roms are guaranteed to have to security issues? I understand your point, we are leaving it up to Google and BlackBerry to fill the holes. But if you can't get root access on a device then that automatically closes opportunities for malicious code. Might I ask why you remove GPS?

    Yes the keys are shorter. I noted it is not as high. Height-wise it is a hair bigger than the PRIV but from top to bottom it is same a PRIV. Just the frets on the KEYone is there and on the PRIV, the lack of Fret is bigger than the frets.

    Compared to a P'9883 it is The KEYone is higher. Although the P'9983 has nice spacing between the rows to compensate.

    I believe blackberry mobile aka TCL is going for more one handed use with the phone. Certainly doable over the passport. There is no argument there. Hehe.

    Yes, It is really, really hard to one hand a Passport, tried a few times but have to shift phone too much to be usable just to hit the keys to the far left.
