    I'm surprised we have not seen a bar file based on the android tablet app come out yet, with all the smart leakers we have around here. I'd be nice to try sideloading it on a playbook, even though it still can't be used with my z30 :/

    And don't blame the carriers - I work for a carrier - and it's not like we have received an update from BB and are taking our sweet time testing it out before releasing it to customers. We have NOT received any software update from BlackBerry. So, we haven't even started testing it.

    Just for curiosities sake, since you work for a carrier. What department do you work in? Not interested in the carrier brand, just the department.

    With all the tutorials on here, you're welcome to try it out and report back. Hint: when goggling it, use the term "apk to bar"

    Yikes! Since June the BlackBerry roadmap has been Passport Release in September, Classic in October and then 10.3.1 in November for all other BB10 devices. Blend will not work with legacy devices until 10.3.1 is released. That is the story and I'm sticking to it.

    Huh? This is NOT about LEAKS! Read it again.

    The whole point is - BlackBerry is not releasing software updates for older devices at the same as it is releasing updates for NEW devices.

    Other manufacturers release updates mighty quickly.

    And don't blame the carriers - I work for a carrier - and it's not like we have received an update from BB and are taking our sweet time testing it out before releasing it to customers. We have NOT received any software update from BlackBerry. So, we haven't even started testing it.

    Finally, if Porche Design P9883 (identical to Q10) can be released with 10.3+ and connect to BLEND--- why can't BlackBerry officially release software update for existing devices? Clearly, they have OFFICIAL 10.3 working on re-badged Q10!!!!!! Software is already READY!!!!! Yet BlackBerry won't release it. At this point, it hasn't even released to carriers. It's entirely with BlackBerry.
    Despite 10.3.0 being made available to the P9983, it is not well optimized for only 2GB of ram. It may work well on the Passport, but it is pretty rough still on the Z30 if you have a lot of apps (especially Android apps). They are still in the 10.3.1.7xx range with the OS builds, so it won't be ready for another month or two.

    So, you have two choices: 1) Delay Passport Launch and release the same time as 10.3.1, or 2) Get Passport out now and wait for 10.3.1.

    They went with option 2 obviously. It was smart as it allows some functional exclusivity with the Passport for a short period of time.

    Your beef is really about why they didn't keep the Passport in the warehouse until 10.3.1 was ready - not the other way around.

    Anyone that has a passport, porches or whitelisted PIN... yes. Everyone else... no. And it remain that way till BlackBerry either decides to release Blend for 10.2.1(which won't happen) or 10.3.1 releases(estimated November).
