    I assume Mr. Bla1ze has a passport device to review, and will post a bunch of articles and reviews once they officially unveil it and release it! Crackberry had similar devices when the Z10 was launched while they were in Toronto. I am assuming the same applies here, and he's been playing with a Passport for a few days now, getting ready for the big release in 9 days, which is why he knows that is not the retail packaging! That's my assumption, but god knows some of my past assumptions have made me...well, an *** for assuming! lol
    So now we're supposed to call him Mr. Bla1ze? Does that mean I have to buy a tie to wear at the CrackBerry forums?

    So now that we are all "journalists" with BlackBerry related BBM Channel blogs: How does one apply for these press release boxes?

    I assure you that is not the actual box. That is a press box. Not the customer retail box.
    So Bla1ze .... will there be an "Executive Box" package similar in attempt like the famed Acrylic Z10 and Q10 boxes when launched?
    (Man I was an imbeccile for selling my Z10 Executive box) I do hope BlackBerry does the same and makes them available to the public. Add in some niceties that are really high quality and rare ...I'd easily pay $1000 CAN for Passport in such a kit - especially if the kit values up to $1200 part and parcel.

    Too bad, it would be a pretty neat retail box with that slogan. It would certainly break from the usual mould.

    Doubt that's the retail packaging... It's too wide for retail.
    ...it is?

    It might keep the same slogan, but just have a different design and possibly a bigger font

    I hope that inside the box, the contents under the phone will be neatly presented, not a mess like in the previous BB10 boxes.

    Man...oh man!

    As much as I like Blackberry and the specs of the new phone, I think it will catch fire with controversy and criticism! I believe that the pundits that put down the Z10 will lock and load on the Passport for being so "out there" and call it "out of touch". I believe that people will continue to scoff, mock and laugh (out loud) at the form factor of the Passport and creatively bash it as another embarrassment for Blackberry. I believe that the "nay-sayers" will say that Blackberry is "really-so-far-gone" and out of step with what consumers want that their fate is inevitable.

    I really don't think this form factor will entice the marketplace but will alienate users who will believe the billions of dollars worth of negative (free) press and there is no way that BB can counter advertise or promote the passport beyond that. Is this the nail in the coffin? I don't know, but people are gonna second guess this move and wonder why not "imitate" the leaders instead of blazing in a direction that no one is going.

    Real soon, you'll hear about another US Govt brand that is ditching the BB altogether in favor of Samsungs. It'll be locked down, but the choice is clear that "everyone loves/wants a winner". That perception no longer belongs to Blackberry.

    However, Go BB!
