    I initially started off with the passport, loved it, and recently I picked up a classic for weekend use...or vice versa.

    I find I use the classic at work for emailing and phone calls during the week, and use the passport for more social and non work related activities on the weekend,but still have the capability to do work with it when I need to.

    Anyone else utilize 2 devices throughout the week? Or are you more likely to cling to only one device?

    I carry both on me most of the time (also have the Bold 9930, IP6+ and Note Edge in my laptop bag). I develop apps for mobile devices. For analyzing spreadsheets and reading PDFs, or reading news, or typing long emails, I use the PP. Scrolling using the PP touchpad is so fluid and fast. Come to think of it, I don't use the Classic very often, except for answering calls. However, that body and design are just so darn attractive.

    I wish classic would have same spec as passport. I just don't like to carry two phones and swap sim card.

    Agreed, however if the classic had the same or similar specs as the passport, it would have been a totally different device.
    It would be in a larger form factor to house a larger battery,lets face it, passport specs with classic original batter would last a half day at best.

    I probably wouldn't have picked up the classic if it was any larger.

    Conversely I'm not sure that I would want a passport with a tool belt either.

    No doubt. By no means I'm complaining, but like you said, if the Classic has more RAM and storage, that would be tremendous. I don't mind the slower processor, but I need that 3Gb and 32Gb.

    well I really don't mind if screen size or pixel resolution. I just want classic to have same processor with 32gb storage. Newer processor takes less battery.

    Basically I use the passport and classic the same. The classic for work productivity and calls and the passport for weekend use when email isn't a super high priority but can be if needed

    Using them both but moving towards the Classic because of the form factor.
    Typing is so much more accurate on Classic, so I am using it to write my university assignments.
    I could talk about Classic for hours.

    Interesting... I'm attracted to the Classic for its form but I can't imagine using it instead of the Passport for long emails. Typing on this thing is a dream now!

    * Buy a passport as a second device for browsing?
    * buy a Q10 as a second device because in love with keyboard?
    * only use my classic?

    I'd say to get a passport. It's an extremely versatile device. The screen is much nicer for surfing the web and viewing pdf documentsz,the keyboard is a fun challenge,but I find myself getting quicker every day on it.

    I like my classic and my passports for various reasons,and use them equally

    Have both the Classic, and Passport would be like having a girlfriend, and being married as they both know about each other and are ok with it.

    Yes! I use both. Really like PP for "phablet" duties at the desk. LOVE my classic for "phonelet" duties away from the desk. All depends on your use priorities. Phones, IMO, are devices with physical "end" keys so PP stays mostly at the desk for surfing, photo, etc duties. Besides, using a device that demands both hands requires a desk to set the coffee mug on... lol

    As far as carrying and using two device, most in my office are carrying 9900 as backup for our fixed batt Classics. During an intense plant startup this past month, I've been text coordinating my crew with a 9930 in left hand while simultaneously coordinating our client's crew with Classic in right hand. VERY effective! Still perfecting technique but our three "smart guys" have been doing something similar. Nice thing about single handed devices.
