    On launch day no Passport in my local CPW. A few weeks later a dummy unit. Now, this week, a real Passport bolted to the display! Yah!

    Except it's fooked. Black display, red light flashing once, then about six times. Won't turn on.

    Some kids commenting to each other on it, "would you be wanting to carry that brick in your pocket?".

    Guess sales will be slow.

    Oh, and they have also removed the other BlackBerry dummy units from display, q5, q10.

    No, I would have had to wait. But it's a bit hard to miss. It has its own display unit.
    I've passed by since on a couple of occasions and nothing has changed.

    Never heard that word before, "nadgered". Well done sir, definitely adding that one to my vocabulary

    Just a final update:

    Amusingly, this week they have managed to get a working display Passport (or repaired/reloaded the broken one). Congrats to CPW. They even have a dummy Q10 unit sitting out again too, nice.
    Things are moving quickly around here...

    Carphone Warehouse, probably the only remaining independent phone retailer left on the high street here in the UK. Most other stores are either network operator branded or apple.
