    That was an awesome review. I just wish he didn't scare off half the human race from trying it though.

    "Numerous strangers have approached me to ask about the device. They are always men. The women I?ve shown the Passport to seem vaguely horrified by the thing."


    At first my wife didn't believe they were going to put out a phone with sharp corners. She thought it would rip through her pocket or purse!.. lol

    But now she loves it.

    It is truly a great review written by someone who needs it and consequently understands it's design. But, what is particularly interesting is what is largely missing, the so called app gap argument. Certainly, he touched on the Android compatibility but why didn't he go on and on about the smaller app selection. It's simple, there is no app to compensate for a rectangular screen that limits document creation/reviewing. There is no app to compensate for the absence of a qwerty keyboard with state of the art touch sensitivity. There is no app to compensate for a crappy battery. And finally there is no app that can compensate for the absence of hub and blend. By combining BB10 with an innovative hardware design, BlackBerry has broken the back of the app gap argument by highlighting core functionality The reason the passport is disruptive is that it changes the conversation and what people expect from mobile technology. Well done BlackBerry.

    Fair enough, the article was a bit stereotypic.

    Time to buy the passport men, the ladies like it too.

    Great Article..i was in one of the retails stores today for festival shopping and they said they had atleast about 50 odd prebookings for the passport. Which not so bad. Mumbai has 100's of stores. So in a suburbun area to have 50 pre bookings it's a brilliant thing. One thing is for sure. Those who are ordering are being told to wait for upto 15 days minimum. Looks like passports are being produced as per demand. And all the initial stock seems to be over. Not heard such good news about BlackBerry in a longtime. The sales person told me there are a lot of queries for it and people wanting to buy it immediately, but quite a few had to be turned away as there was no stock.

    Jon Kay is my favourite writer at National Post. Great review from a real user, and not some tech geek from one of the Apple-shilling outfits.

    I'm sure his experience with women being 'horrified' by the Passport will change soon, as more women like me begin to use it.

    Seems like the title of the article was changed!

    It now reads: "Jonathan Kay: Why I ditched my iPhone for Blackberry?s massive new Passport"

    Whereas it previously read: "Jonathan Kay: Why I?m hooked on the clunky new Blackberry Passport, the world?s first male-gendered smartphone"

    Guess someone at BlackBerry is doing their job!
