    Just in case nobody came up with this yet.

    The concept is "Passbook"

    All touch device with 16:9 aspect ratio based on the Passport
    Should have as many shared components with the Passport as possible but be released Q2 2015

    The commonality and commoditization of the bill of materials and reduced RnD could mean a lower price at the stores

    Measurements are in inches

    Screen height Screen width Screen diagonal Screen aspect ratio Device width Device height
    Passport 3.18 3.18 4.50 1.00 3.56 5.00
    Passbook 5.66 3.18 6.49 1.78 3.56 6.03

    Depending on the success of the Passport and the Passbook they could make a 4 row physical keyboard device for release in Q4 2015 with the same dimensions as the Passbook.
    That one should get the updated specs.
    Might even be enough room for a tool belt.

    I see absolutely zero point in a belt. Especially with that keyboard.

    Honestly I don't feel strongly about the belt but I know bold users who missed the belt when they upgraded to Q10's.
    Actually I wonder if a Passport/Passbook sized device would be of any interest to those folks anyway.

    I agree, the Q screen is just too small to work well as a touch. Taking the capacitive keyboard from the Passport, and making it Q size would resolve the belt desire for most I would think.

    Meh, the dinosaur users (no offense to my reptilian friends - Andy are you listening), probably will never be convinced, LoL.
