    Randomly came across this in the concepts section (source) and as you see in the image it's dubbed the "Passport Light" but this looks more reminiscent of the Classic style if you ask me. It's actually perfect in my mind since the style of the keys are that of the Classic instead of the PRIV/Passport style which is too flat for my tastes.

    What do you all think? (aside from the atrocious color, lol)

    It's a 4.8 in tall screen. It's way taller than the Passport. Take a closer, look, lol.

    I'm also for the 4 row keyboard. But I would by it with 3 rows immediately too.

    I just didn't have the passport specs (in mm) in front of me. Sometimes the metric conversion can be tricky...just double it and add 40, right?

    Classic form factor with a longer screen. Passport is too much of a niche to sell well.

    Remember...the title of the post is "How the vienna would look". It's a hypothetical.

    I would very much prefer the 4-row Classic keyboard (plus tool belt, or whatever it's called) over the 3-row Passport keyboard.

    I think this would be popular. Simple rectangular design + Android OS would appeal to masses and PKB + BlackBerry name definitely appeals to us BB heads. And an affordable mid-level price point would create even more mass appeal. If this doesn't sell, then you know it's over.

    Not fan of the passport but damn that looks sweet ! Unfortunately BlackBerry would probably price it at $5000 a device so that no one buys it and then they say "there just isn't a demand for them".

    All depends on pricing. Lately BlackBerry has been pricing as if they are "premium" devices. The average person just doesn't have that kind of $$$. They want a hit? Price if better !

    My complaints about the PP form factor aside, releasing a 2016 phone running Lollipop is suicide.
