    What I am most curious about is the Passport's ability to run 16x9 apps, letter boxed - whether it be portrait or landscape!

    If that is the case... it would be a big deal for app selection on the passport. Sacrificing screen real estate for a lesser media consumption experience in a Q device is one thing, but also losing out on app selection kills the physical keyboard devices for many.

    If however some of the rumors are true that it can run more than one app on screen at a time, that would have to be by running 16x9 apps, no?

    Thoughts?

    This is actually one of the most important factors for me and buying the passport.

    With a 1440p screen they can be creative on how they could display 16:9 apps.

    Using android apps on My Q10 however, I feel that android apps have the capability to resize to 4:3 and display itself properly, rescaling a 16:9 app to 4:3 and using letterboxs would result a decent way to consume android apps on the passport.

    Signature - Google wants your info. What are you gonna do about it?

    I don't think this would be an issue at all... there is No way BlackBerry would make the phone like that knowing it would ruin good app experience...

    When the Q10 was designed the android runtime was still a joke imo. It was like look what my phone can do I'm a nerd! Fast-forward to today I do hope the app experience is a bit better on the classics 3.5" display because 3.1" leaves a little to be desired

    Q10, Q5, Z30... Damn I love leaks too much!
