    Think of OG like you think of 'going commando' which doesn't have any military ties anymore. OG doesn't have anything to do with gangsters anymore.

    um.. that's been established wth are you talking about. however, OG IS the incorrect abbreviation to original. there could be 400 posts, my point still stands.

    can't believe this is the highlight of this thread. smh.
    I guess the SE Passport is that unexciting

    Now let's put this to rest - Let me google that for you

    Do you even have one? I have been using mine for almost 5 days. I understand why some might not like the look but There are some major changes:

    1. The keyboard is significantly better and easier to type on.
    2. The antenna have been reworked with this new case to provide even better signal strength. I definitely notice a difference over my Red PP.
    3. The speakers are slightly louder.
    4. It feels much better in the hand and with the extra room at the bottom makes it easier to type on.
    5. The accessories are better in my opinion than the first.
    6. The camera is protected. My Red BB already has some scratches.
    7. The scrolling and swiping sensitivity on this keyboard is easier than on my Red PP.
    8. It feels more solid with the stainless steel in my opinion.

    Someone claimed here earlier that not all of the silver parts are made of stainless steel but some are made of silver painted plastic.

    True or false?

    I got the red and the black original Passports but the SE definitely feels more premium to me.

    The SE reminds me of the Mercedes Benz G-wagon. Some say it looks out dated or too rugged. But there's a certain feel of luxury that this one has that my other two didn't have. The plain plastic or rubberized plastic backs are gone, replaced by a textured, patterned better feeling rubber. It's not the kind of rubber like the black one, where a fingernail could scuff it.

    I think the regular Passports look cool, but this SE one feels like a Porsche Design model.

    You can't. But yes maybe later if it sells well. It seems like people here on CB emptied their wallets and "made it rain" when the SE came out. But I'd expect that from this site ;-)

    Why not Bobby? It's not my personal preference of phone but I wouldn't mind taking it for a spin. It is a BlackBerry after all.

    I get this feeling that people hating on the Passport fall in one of two categories:

    1) They are feeling butthurt because they didn't know a better upgrade regarding the Passport would present themselves down the line and are now out of the warranty period.

    2) They can't afford the phone to begin with. Might as well bash something you only see on pictures and have no first hand experience with right?

    I used to fall into category number two until I decided to go ahead on a whim by ditching my Z10. Now I'm more than happy for making the change. Go figure.

    Ummmmm It's not a CDMA phone therefore I'd have to switch to a GSM carrier to use it. Overstand?

    I have all three Passports, including the black from launch. I loved the white but hated the back, it was too slippery. Love the look and design of the silver as well as the back material. It is awesome. Looks great in person. Just looks badass. I could be crazy but feels a little lighter in weight and the keys are easier to push. Definitely the best passport yet.

    That is bizarre. They used to release all phones in every variant, not anymore.

    It makes perfect sense to me because BlackBerry has been steadily diminishing its presence in hardware ever since Chen arrived. I mean, Chen admitted that BlackBerry was still losing money in hardware and he has recently reduced the number of expected phones to be released this year. And he is a software guy who's trying to reshape the company in that fashion.

    I worry that all of these measures, including Chen's only releasing GSM models, just continues the same trend towards a BlackBerry exit from hardware in the next year or so.

    Then again, all of this could be a random coincidence and amount to nothing.

    Between Verizon and Sprint they have well over 1/2 of market share in the USA both CDMA carriers. So just ignore over half of customers available. Smart plan.

    Exactly. I really want that phone, I was seriously considering leaving leaving verizon for it until they cut my bill by $60 and gave me an extra gig. I still want it tho I really hope they make a CDMA version.

    Been using the SE for a while now coming from Black passport to white Passport and then to this Silver machine. It quite refreshing for a change and the keyboard is simply too good... I don't know but I even feel as if the device is a little faster and responsive than my black and white device!

    I just got a red Passport. Very impressed with the look and function of it. Looking at the Silver one in picture only, not very impressed. Doesn't jump out at me. Any of the original Passports looks far better that that thing. Would have to try one out to make a proper call though.
