    Question: why would an undecided professional who wants a bigger screen size choose the passport vs the latest galaxy note?
    Because of the dimensional differences.
    You know the entire selling point that's also part of the slogan? "work wide"

    There are reasons for choosing the note 4 but screen size is not one of them if you're comparing with the pp.

    As an engineer I'm not looking at drawings on a 10 inch tablet let alone a 5 inch phone. To each his/her own, though.
    I guess it depends on what type of drawing it is. I have no problem checking most of our drawings on my Z30, would even be easier on a Passport.
    But now I don't look a drawings of big complex buildings or such things, just smaller steel structures.

    My drawings are primarily electrical schematics. There are three 28 inch monitors on my desk for that task and sometimes I wonder if they are large enough.

    It is really good for me to see the patient's lab values. Wide screen = easier to find trends.

    Physician here. I really wish BlackBerry has Citrix working on an application for the Passport. My hospital uses Citrix. I was really looking forward to using Citrix given the wide screen etc. Now I'm just disappointed. Anyone know how to open Epic EHR on the Passport btw???

    Not in the Turkey. It's not available officially yet. I can buy over-priced one in black market or I can get it when I (or some friends) go abroad. Amazon is not eligible channel because of custom policies.

    We have 4 major carriers in America. Two of them use CDMA for at least part of their configuration. Phone manufacturers have to make special versions of their phones for Sprint & Verizon each. As far as I can tell, they seem to use very different frequencies.

    On top of that, Verizon tightly controls which phones are allowed to operate on their network. Usually Verizon BlackBerry phones are also GSM, at least for world wide use, but often don't support the best range of bands for the highest speeds available on AT&T at least.

    CrackBerryQ. I know Auto CAD works but just an FYI if you want a better experience try Etoolbox mobile CAD. So much better for DWF DWF drawings. Hit me up by Bbm if you need the apk.

    Why not have one 50-60" ish monitor/screen mounted on that wall directly behind those monitors instead?
    Would also create more desk realestate....

    Three different computers three different screens, three different tasks. Two more behind me on the other desk.

    I'm not a doctor or an engineer but I have used it at work to look at Excel spreadsheets instead of carrying with me printed out copies. Not necessarily better than than the printed out version, but close enough and less paper-wasting is always a good thing.

    Not an engineer but I am an audio and electronic repair technician and I find the Passport very useful for viewing schematics or updating invoices or estimates on the go. As I handle a good amount of email from clients, the Hub is very useful for handling, filtering and archiving messages.

    Physician. Current citrix app on passport...does not exist. Android app is ok for citrix. Have not used it at all, which is the opposite of what I thought initially.

    The PlayBook citrix app was great in comparison.

    Ophthalmic surgeon / ophthalmic consultant using it for examination of corneal topography and wavefront maps. Sometimes even patient records. Works perfectly and I no longer need a tablet. Very happy. Ditched VZW for this and glad I did. Thinking of buying a back-up so that I can stay on the PP.
