    Why would I buy a Passport with a 4.5 inch square screen when I can get a PRIV. The square screen was and is a poor design unless you are going to replace the 9900 with its 2.8 inch screen.

    IMO they should make a narrower Passport with a PRIV style KB. They just have to adopt a 4:3 screen. There is still a market for a non slider PKB.

    You're clearly wrong. Once you use Passport you'll know why a square design works. I still can't find any devices from current phones in which I can compose long emails, read articles and review documents with as ease.
    Yes its not perfect however there's nothing close.

    I believe that's why we have this thread discussing if there's a possibility to have Android on this solid hardware.

    The only clarity here is the market. The market does not like phones that are 90 mm wide. The most popular phone in the world is 67 mm wide followed by the second most popular phone at 70 mm. The PRIV is wide at 77 mm. I would suggest that a Passport with a width of 72mm (Classic) or 77 mm ( PRIV) with a 4:3 profile screen might be more popular that either the Classic or the current Passport.

    The second issue is cannibalization. The market for PKB BlackBerry phones is finite. They could sell 600,000 Passports and 1,400,000 PRIV's or they could just sell 2 million PRIV's.

    I strongly suspect that the original Passport has sold all that the design can support and a new OS on the old design would not be successful.
