    Is there any validity to this rumor? Would ATT really ever request something this big, and would BlackBerry ever fulfill that request (seems preposterously expensive to do, unless ATT gave them serious incentive).

    You'll have to elaborate further - myself, and many others likely don't know what you're referring to.

    It looks absolutely hideous. The Passport brought me to Blackberry for the first time. I was looking forward to a long love affair with the Passport but damn I hope the Passport 2 doesn't have these weird rounded corners.

    Wow - This was a rumor in August? Can anyone elaborate as to where this initially got out? It's amazing to see this thread and then have it show up four months later and nobody else had a clue.

    I read the rounded corners thing a few times here. But idk where the leak came from or anything really. Can we figure out how someone knew this ahead of time?

    So I guess this is SQW100-3, which comes with PMA charging?

    I think someone made up the rumor here. At&t then got wind of the rumor and stole the idea ha

    It actually looks better to me. Still has the annoying 3 row kb though!

    I think it's great. They've added a little extra space under the keyboard too.

    you are correct, the redesign is not solely about the rounded corners, but also including PMA charging technology

    Here is the official certification, for anyone that needs proof:

    It's just as ugly as the original Passport imo. What it does do though is get the device on a major US carrier. Once they start having them in stores, they will be front and center.

    I hope AT&T pushes these phones hard to enterprise customers. I'm going for the Passport.

    Likely to accommodate an AT&T logo.

    I've never held a passport or seen one IRL but what does make sense to me in this redesign is the additional space on the bottom. Something to hold on to and give balance instead of pressing on the keyboard.

    I probably will never want a passport, but if I did I like the looks of the squared edges better.

    But maybe someone with a passport can tell me what they think of the additional room at the bottom of the AT&T version.

    The specs are the exactly the same as the current Passport only the corners are different. Same chip, camera, keyboard and antenna. I do not know weather or not if this version of the Passport has 10.3 or 10.3.1

    It also supports PMA wireless charging and will come preloaded with OS 10.3.1

    Loyal followers...those who went out of their way to stay with the brand.
    Loyal followers are people who purchased the Passport when it came out.
    Shall I explain further? etc....
    Wireless charging coming as well on the AT&T model? That's nice, but...could have used that on the original Passport.

    Ditto. Hope that the Passport 2 retains this design and has the normal 4 row KB.
