    I'm assuming that the one you got came with 10.3.0.1052 right?
    Also I saw in DHabkirk's channel that they might implement pinch the active frame to minimize? Is that a feature? Do you know if the smaller sized active frames will come to full touchscreen devices?

    Nope, not the 1052, it was the first thing I looked for, it was actually a .296 – the device is just for carrier tasting, I guess only BlackBerry staff gets the brand new updates
    About the frames - I asked the person how to make them smaller and they said it works automatically once you open more apps. But again this wasn't the final OS and the person wasn't working for BB, so I didn't get any future features insights. The carriers don't even care about the OS or things like audio output, from what the person said they only test whether the carrier's network features work fine on the device.

    Please take down those photos and upload them with the serial number blocked on the bottom of the device. That can get your friend into trouble.

    A word of advice.

    Anything else different software wise as I already got a chance to play with the hardware

    There weren't many apps in the menu, plus the person testing it already added their accounts to the settings, so I didn't want to open contacts or calendar for privacy reasons. Therefore I couldn't really test how many active frames it can manage, but I believe I've read earlier that it should be more than 8, maybe 12, not 100% sure.
    Great. The limited active frames right now is frustrating. Can't wait to grab this device and chuck my 5s

    We might get more active frames on the z10/z30. Think about it: the Z3 has 8 active frames with 10.3 and less ram. They should make it so there's 10 active frames on the z10/z10 and 12 on the passport

    The Z3 has 1.5 GB of RAM and can now run 8 active frames. That means that with 2 GB of RAM surely we can run at least 2 more active frames

    Would you be able to take more low light pictures if you still have the phone?

    Nope, sorry, I don't have it anymore, just tested it during the meeting, will try to contact the person and ask to send some if they still have it (there were no pictures on the device, I checked).

    These pictures and subsequent information have definitely got me thinking about considering the Passport. My only issue is the keyboard. Having the physical keyboard is vital to me and im not sure if the Passport will feel the same typing wise. I can't stand touch screen keyboards so I'm not sure if I could adjust.

    So my questions are:

    Does it feel like you could type comfortably with the Passport? A document or an email for example?.

    I see you've got Z10s there but have you used the Q10 or Q5? And if so, do you think the Passport's keyboard is as effective?

    Lastly, I like being able to type very quickly, sometimes I don't even look at the keypad when I'm responding. Does it feel like you do this on the Passport?

    Apologies if i'm asking too much, I know you only had 2 hours.

    Can you ask someone to take a pic of you with the Passport in your hand, next to your ear as you are making a call?

    Oh yeah, now that you ask - when I was handed the device, it had a big pop-up notification on the screen saying that it rebooted unintentionally and asking what were the reasons for it, right under the question were a few radio-buttons with options like intentional reboot by the user, low battery, system bug, I don't remember all of them, guess it was for diagonstic purposes.

    Probably diagnostics but that's similar to windows. Interesting

    Looks like a sealed battery in the Passport. That's exactly why I hate iPhones.

    Spare battery gives the freedom to carry on while iPhone users pull out their charging cables and look for a mains power point.

    A bug down point in my view.

    Yes, I've been using a Q10 for about 2 weeks before writina a review and I've owned a Bold 9700 and 9900 earlier. The keyboard itself is very comfortable if you ask about the feeling of it when you touch it or press it. As I said - the only disadvantage for me was the location of the keyboard, I'm not used to such a low position. I also type very quickly on my Z10 and I was typing really slow when I tried it first on the Passport, but it has its learning curve. I remember getting used to the SW keyboard after upgrading from 9900 to Z10 and also it took time to get used back to the hardware keyboard when I received the Q10 for testing, so I don't think it's such a big problem. The keyboard is really huge and comfortable, so it's only a question of how quick you develop a correct grip while typing on Passport

    The difference is that the passport's battery is about twice the iPhone battery

    There's only a tiny bit of the PIN visible as I wanted to keep the UI visible as much as I could. Most of the pin is blurred though

    It's been a long time since I tested the Z30, and I didn't have one by me, but as far as I recall it didn't feel noticeably heavier, check the weight in full specs that were published a few days ago

    Panorama - yes
    Slow motion, you have to first record and then edit
