    Watching the Toronto Raptors vs. Atlanta Hawks on TSN. Just saw a commercial of the raptors GM Masai Ujiri using the passport. Talking about the features etc. Nice commercial. Will try to find a link.

    Yeah I saw it too it was awesome!! Similar to the Z30 ads with the Toronto Maple Leafs GM... But these were with the new "Work Wide" campaign and had the Toronto Raptors GM instead. I don't have a video but the ad was fantastic, it showed the phone and him using the main features of the phone in his daily life and at work.

    ie. Taking pictures of his kids and with friends, Scrolling with the keyboard and text selection, the hub and other main features.

    He was also providing narration in the back ground as he used the device to describe how he used the phone and the features he loved.

    That is the gist of it, hopefully we can find a video to show everyone... if it comes on again I'll be ready!

    Have seen this commercial half a dozen times during the game. I think it's a great commercial. Really provides the professional aspects of the passport and the BlackBerry brand

    I saw it as well. Very cool! It was smartly done. I've been scouring the web for a clip to share but nothing yet.

    It's not that good to be honest..

    No enthusiasm in his voice..its pretty bad imo.

    Yes it shows some good features but they way the commercial was shot and his voice..doesn't make me want to get the passport.

    Very similar to the Leafs (I think it was Tucker) version of the Z30 commercial last season.

    Great to see Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment on board with BlackBerry. Lots of signage at the Air Canada Centre as well during the Leafs and Raptors games.

    Now, if the Leafs can update their damn app to work with the Passport, I'd be happy lol I have the Z30 version installed on mine and it doesn't display properly. Afraid to delete it because in App World it shows as unavailable for my device

    The commercial itself wasn't the greatest, but at least it gets the message out.

    Mono tone. We went from the Super bowl add a couple years ago to this. Not much improvement. Who is heading up Marketing? Sad because the product deserves soooo much more.

    Why? It's just a device? The purpose behind an ad like this is to show that people that have much more important or meaningful things to worry about or take care of find the Passport to be useful.

    His education mission is his real passion, as it should be. It would be ridiculous and frankly unrealistic to frame his excitement about the Passport over the passion for his program.

    It's meant to appeal not to those that geek out and stop everything to play with and fawn over every aspect of their device (i.e. Most of us here), it's meant to appeal to those that would like something that helps them do what they really need to do.

    I liked how he rotated the Passport and then used the keyboard area to scroll !!!

    I was really hoping that they would highlight some more of the keyboard, like the fine cursor control for people that used to love their touchpad on BBOS. Otherwise it was okay... I agree with other posters that the voice acting was very dull.

    I wanna see something exciting from BlackBerry, other than awesome phones! lol

    I think the best Passport video that's made me most excited was the tyler florence interview, and it was a food interview gone on tangent, not even a commercial

    Wow amazing!!

    Just watching the Raptors game.(Sunday Nov 2nd) They played this commercial three times and it's only half way through the first quarter. Serious air play.
