    Hear me out...

    Bold 9900 and others were technically "landscape" given 4:3 aspect ratio. For bb10, BlackBerry switched to square 1:1 ratio.

    With android, 1:1 is a no-go, but 4:3 and 3:2 are ok. Many android tablets use this ratio and operate perfectly fine in landscape AND portrait mode.


    What if we had a device like the passport, but with a 4 row keyboard and 4:3 or 2:3 screen in landscape mode. Essentially filling the same overall footprint as an original passport.

    Or better yet, a bold 9900 form factor with the same 4:3 screen that could "legally" run android.

    I'm sure a device like this would never happen, and would be completely scoffed at to death. But I would totally appreciate a 9900 running android.
