    Tried the instagram app, the newest version? Tried to upload a pic? It doesn't work so the runtime is not that good at this point

    As an owner of a Q10, I am really looking forward to the larger screen with physical keyboard that the passport offers I care about the functionality of the device, and believe that function trumps form. I am also going to get the passport or its successor depending on when I can upgrade. I believe that this device is the epitome of the enterprise focus that BlackBerry has moved back to. Remember that this focus is what got BB to the top of the heap back pre- iPhone.

    The OP does bring up a good point: most of us are BlackBerry fans, and are excited about the Passport, but almost none of us have seen one in the flesh. Maybe we would not be so happy with it if we actually had to use it all the time.

    I'm probably going to buy one, but I'll wait until I have tried one out before I'll spend the money on a form factor that may not suit me.

    I disagree, there is still a big gapp between the iphone and blackberry. The fluidity from the iphone is much better with just 1 gig of ram, apps are better from IOS etc etc. Sure blackberry has android runtime but we all know it is not working well ( yes I have newest leak) specwise blackberry is better with the passport but that's about it. Blackberry is not like the bible (neither is IOS or Android) blackberry will have a good phone with the passport but it can and will not compete with IOS or Android

    This is true. It's not the device but rather the name and perception associated with it. It's like if it's a BlackBerry then it's useless without even testing it.

    I had a hard core IOS user and developer use z10 for a while and he was impressed but in the end it was BlackBerry

    If the Passport were a woman, it'd be like some ugly, brainy fat chick that you took out on a date either because she helps with work or because you have a misguided sense of loyalty to her family.

    Who's this guy speaking for Q10 owners? I have a Q10 and my only gripe is the smaller screen compared to my Z10. Passport would be a perfect transition to a proper sized screen with a new keyboard. All the "business" people of the world, the passport is a wet dream for productivity and screen real estate. I look forward to reading and writing on that screen

    I agree to letting things grow on you.
    Some of my favorite songs had to grow on me, and now I can't get enough of them

    Things grow on people because they are different than ordinary . If they weren't different they wouldn't need to grow on you.

    Like the iPhone, no need to grow, exactly the same, just slightly bigger

    As a developer we have a device. The OS is amazing and the large screen is fantastic...but it all stops there. Around the office the general feeling is the device is too wide...a "brick" was used by several people to describe it. It's not an elegant device that you want, it would be used more out of requirement for screen real-estate. NOBODY came out and said "that's sexy" or anything remotely. Too bad such poor industrial design. Really all they had to do was take the Q10 and make it a little taller like the Samsungs of the world. You can't make everybody happy I guess...but where were the focus groups on this! We are big on Blackberry at our company as it is standard issue for all staff. Maybe it will grow on me. Does it really need to be that way?

    I could be wrong, BUT:
    Wasn't the Passport designed with business owners, CEOs, even politicians in mind? For the kind of people who have their fingers in every pie and multitask 18 hours a day nonstop?
    Because if that is the case, then the "brick" is perfect:
    Such a person doesn't hold the phone to their ear to make or answer a call, they'd be on their Bluetooth or even a wired headset to talk while checking all sorts of info coming in on their device, fire up emails, edit documents and what not.
    If that's the case, then the Passport is perfect as is.

    It's way too much phone for me, I currently have the Q10 which I'm happy with and I plan to get the Classic at some point, but if I were running a corporation, or working as a stockbroker or in any field that requires nonstop multitasking, that's what I would get.

    TO EACH THEIR OWN says it all.
    If you're one of those folks that has nothing or nothing much good to say.. go to a thread that is more appealing to your taste instead of wasting time with negativity.
    and let those that like how different it is and aren't hung up on what other people will think of them... enjoy it!.

    Besides, if you're worried about what others may think of you because of your mobile device...
    you should consider seeking professional help!! (imo, of course!)
    I'm a bit confused? Are you talking to me?

    The longer this thread goes on, the less believable the OP is. His posts have zero substance, and the sole criticism of the Passport (the device not being sexy enough) is based solely on the fact that it's not Samsung, Apple, or rectangular. In other words, it's unappealing purely because it's different.

    I'm buying the Passport, but I'm not buying what the OP's selling here.

    I have heard this "You've got to be able to use a phone with 1 hand" thing a lot. I know that Steve Jobs was a major proponent of this approach, which is one reason why Apple was so slow to develop a phone with a larger screen.
    Having said that, I don't think you'll find many business users (especially people who are used to using phones with physical keyboards) who even *think* about this issue. Sure, there comes a point where "big" may be too big, but to me, a large keyboard and screen are positive things. As I have said elsewhere, I really wanted a Z30 with a slide-out keyboard, but this is the closest phone of any new model that;s available that comes close to meeting my needs. The Classic, while an improvement over the legacy phones, still has a relatively tiny screen. ... Same with the Q10.
    I think this issue could be a generational thing. Everyone I know of who has used the "one handed phone use" standard to judge a phone has been less than 30 years old. And many of them aren't hard core business users. They like to take/post pictures, tweet, text, and maybe occasionally email.


    I'm telling you all, holding it in one hand and keying anything is impossible. Yes...it fits into pockets, but it's...well big.

    Yeah, this thread was a waste of everyone's time. I think we've all realized this dude's post wasn't legit. This guy is probably a troll anyways. Moderators should cut this one.

    When the G Note first came out many people including myself had the opinion that the phone is too big and would never own one. Interestingly, I find myself getting a Z10 due to what I considered an awesome size. Then after using it for a several months got the Z30 because typing on the Z10 for me worked best in landscape leaving a sliver of the screen visible. I've have the Z30 for just under a year now. I find that overall the experience is alright and my resistance to a larger screen/phone is waning. Dare I say, I look forward to having a larger screen. This ironically will bring me into the G Note territory that I thought "never in a million years would I own a phone that big". As for the Passport, I am hoping the physical keyboard helps to reduces the loss of screen real estate since the on-screen keyboard is generally not needed as much.
    So yeah, larger phone size can grow on you. Case in point, it grew on Apple. :-)

    Because if that is the case, then the "brick" is perfect:
    So first, I have no interest in the Passport myself. If I decide to go for another Berry, I'd likely go for the Classic instead ... keys, form factor + lots of email = Classic for me.

    Every day, as I ride the GO TRAIN to downtown Toronto, I see lots of people who work in the financial district doing work. And yes, many of them are on BlackBerry's, and these days, I see more Z10's and Q10's than older devices. Many of them are reading emails, looking at reports with graphs showing projections and the like while flipping back and forth to answer a bunch of emails.

    I see this as the kind of crowd that wants the Passport, not me. Keyboard, yet big screen for viewing business documents.

    If the pictures do not attract the people, it will fail. They have to want to see it, and feel it from the pictures. I love my Z10. But I don't think I would like this Passport. Not from I seen, and read.
    I know some people will like it, but not enough to help BlackBerry get more phones sold, or people excited.
