    Will be sending my Black Passport back (loose screen) and buying a new Passport. Thinking to go for the white one. Question for those who own the white edition: given that the device will he heavily used, does the white passport get easily dirty?

    Buying the passport in 4 hours for delivery tomorrow.

    From what I have read as of now, the white stays shiny. Although I have to admit I wouldn't buy one, I often have dusty/dirty hands at work and I am not sure how the white will really keep its color on the long run under these conditions!

    If the back is the same as the porcelain finish on the white z30 then yes. But on the z30 I was able to buy a replacement back cover from Crackberry. Can't do that with the Passport!

    Depends on what gets on the back of it. My keyboard stays pretty clean but my back has a skin on it so I couldn't tell you. I would imagine if your hands have oil based grease or coloring, it would get dirty but under normal use and periodic cleaning, it should stay white just fine.

    Still, remember the keys will get worn in just like any other keyboard for a PC but can be kept clean if you wipe it down.

    I have a white one and it stays perfectly white. It doesn't get dirty very easily.
    You're probably right though, I work in an office environment. If you have very dirty hands, greasy or oily, I wouldn't recommend the white at all! The white isn't suitable for heavy duty work.

    I liken it to wearing all white clothing. If you've got a white suit on and you are just going from office to home then no! But if you are then going for a walk along the beach waterfront trail then yes it may get dirty!

    Won't be using it in connection with any heavy duty work, but will indeed be using it heavily for all my communication. Thanks for the feedback. Keeping it clean is indeed important and that I do even with the black one. Just need to take some extra care.

    White it is, and here goes the order for it. By the way it is on amazon for 599 USD for limited time.
