    Hi Guys,

    1) After around 30 days with the passport, I can say that this is the phone to have if you do business and period!
    That is it.

    2) Here are some very strong features of the blackberry passport (remember that I was a iphone 6 user per 9 months).
    2.1) Keyboard: If you write in several languages during the day, the physical keyboard is a must have and period!
    2.2) Word prediction: If you write a lot, the word prediction of the blackberry passport is also a must have.
    2.3) Notifications: you can setup the notification to ring at nigh just to one specific email account, and all the other notifications in silent mode, or if you need to have the phone on, you can activate the "Phone only" mode, and all other email and messages will not ring. Is very customisable.
    2.4) Battery: don't even worry about, with 50% of the battery in the morning you will be good for the whole day.
    2.5) PDF: Omg, if you do business, you definitely need to work with PDFs, you can create pdf, and attach them to emails.
    2.6) Files: you can work with all kinds of files, just like a computer, you put the files in one of the folders (Documents, Downloads, Pictures, Audio, Videos, etc), and you can edit, zip, extract, etc etc, and attach to emails.

    There is more good stuff to talk about, but I will write later, another day.
    PS: There is also a few things I don't like, which I will also talk about another day.

    You can also download and upload files using an OTG. Also get a slimport and display your files via a projector. Eliminates carrying a laptop to some small meetings.

    Not sure that the Passport is strictly for business...
    My Passport is my personal and primary use phone.

    I love the form factor, the keyboard, the screen size and the quality build components.
    The battery life will keep you going all thru the day with failing and to top it all off, it doesn't look like every other phone on the market.
    When you see a Passport... you know you're looking at a BlackBerry Passport!

    Regarding 2.5, what do you use to create PDF's? I paid for an app in BlackBerry World, and it simply failed every time!

    To create pdf in the blackberry passport you can use the app "Scan to PDF" is a native app made for blackberry, available in the blackberry world apps.
    There are other also, but I have tried this one and it works.

    CamScanner by Intsig also allows to make PDF's either scanned or from the image gallery. It has ads though.

    I'm looking for an app to take Word and PowerPoint files and convert them to a PDF. Not camera shots or pictures.

    Anyone know of a good one?

    I use OfficeSuite Professional 8. It's available via SNAP or the Amazon App store. It does a great job of converting xls or doc files to pdf.

    File Convert is absolute garbage. Fails at every attempt.

    Passport also provides the best reading and viewing email experience. Thanks to the excellent screen quality and size.

    The passport is superior to any other so called mobile on the market right now, there is no other phone which can compete with it and that is whole truth.

    Agree! But except battery life as it would vary a lot depends on usage.

    I set up my company emails to be streamed to my phone, and in addition to message applications such as Wechat, my Passport lasts about one full day at most.

    One final point: the accuracy of both touch typing and keyboard typing on current BlackBerry devices is BAR NONE!

    One of the key business feature is printing an email. Or even print the attached files without having to go to a separate app which doesn't work if you are using business email which locked down from accessing 3rd party apps to print.

    File converter is great. It works and not sure but I think it didn't need to be online.
