    I usually don't reply to threads like this. It's a matter of personal preference and taste.
    And YES, I really like the Passport design.

    But why?
    Possibly cause it's something going in a new direction.
    Something that steps out/up.
    Something for those people who prefer productivity screen ratio over
    media consumption screen ratio.
    Why calling it productivity screen ration? After all human vision has always been landscape, the sad thing is most landscape devices are poorly optimized once the keyboard is showing. IMO the Passport fixes that part. Highres + landscape + hardware keyboard == happy me!

    If you do watch a lot of videos on your device, the Passport might just not be the right for you and I am sure there will be another full touch in the future!
    On the other hand think of it that way, while watching a video on the Passport there is still enough space to reply to instant notifications without anything getting in the way =D

    I'm not so sure it will be a big hit but will definitly appeal to some people. It looks like a big device. Wondering how easy it will be to type with such little space for the keyboard. If it does take off cargo pants will make a big come back.

    No that'd be horrible. Ask LG.
    I tried, but can't find it. Was LG not an android phone?

    I think if you are loving Q10, then you would feel a little uncomfortable about passport square design. hope the corners could be rounded just like Q10. Hope the passport we've seen is the dev version, which means have possibility to change when official release.

    But if it doesn't change from what we've seen right now, then it is ok to accept it. "Long time see brings like-feeling" , LOL

    Cheers,

    In my experience what people really like is making videos in the long narrow tall android/iphone format then up loading them to youtube or showing them to friends at Birthday party's and weddings on wide screen TV with 18" side borders!

    Won't know know for sure until I hold one in my hand. Photos look ok, so do the specs. Hands on will be the final test.

    I am with the majority of folks out there as I have to hold it in my hand before I can pass judgement on the device.

    I love how they're taking a chance with something new. Maybe they think that they won't be able to play the iPhone and Android game... it's nice to see that they're doing what they do best: phones with keyboards.

    The square screen doesn't bother me. The 1:1 ratio is nice for many things as the Q10 has taught me.

    The crippled hardware keyboard though... Well that's another story altogether.

    At first I thought 'damn, that's really wide'. But as news came I began to really like it and I'll definitely buy one sometime.

    No, the squareness is one of the things I dislike the most.
    Shortly after their efforts to cripple the hardware keyboard.

    I have noticed on a few different posts people mentioning the corners may be rounded on release? As they did with the Z10? Anyone heard anything about this?

    Posted via CB10
    I hope not! I love the square and the corners. Makes it look sharp - no pun intended.

    Combine that with the capacitive keyboard, well I just can't wait to try it.

    Yes i love it. Rounded corners have been the "it" thing for long enough. Its just like car designs come in cycles. 1998 mustang(rounded) 1999 mustang (slightly boxy), 2005 mustang (more boxy) then 2014 mustang ( more rounded).

    I miss the square type laptop screens. They seem to "page" more comfortably with documents and the web (maybe that's what Google was doing with the Chromebook Pixel). The "rectangular" screens work better for movies, games, or two documents side by side. Concerning the Passport, I'm up for using this device and excited for the user experience it will introduce.

    I personally think it's a handsome device and can't wait to get my hands on one. Big keys are an added plus for people with big hands.
