    With a square screen, why would you rotate the device to "landscape" ??? What purpose does it serve?

    the browser for example, where you can use the capacitive keyboard as the scroll bar.

    The device is comfortable to hold in landscape mode, using the keypad as a vertical scrollbar.

    Very nice for browsing through Twitter & Facebook feeds, and I use it a lot when using reader mode on Web articles.

    It doesn't sound like a sexy selling feature, but I really quite like it.

    Not having tried one out (not in the market for PP; I'm very happy with my Z30) I wouldn't have thought of that. Not a hugely compelling feature but definitely sounds like a useful one!

    Not sure what you mean there, if it's an insult please elaborate so I can respond appropriately.

    Scrolling in landscape mode was actually surprisingly pleasurable. The keypad is longer in landscape mode which allows you to scroll more of a page with a single longer flick of the thumb. Also the screen isn't partially blocked by your thumb while scrolling like on an all-touch device. It's easy on the eyes and a sort of visual relief to be able to see the whole screen while it scrolls up/down. It doesn't hit you til you try it.

    Im stilling waiting for Oct 6th for shopblackberry to ship my passport but I tried one out in a Telus store on launch day. I can foresee I will be scrolling in landscape alot on my passport.

    It's a little more comfortable to hold and scroll with one hand when in "landscape" mode. Also, you can one hand type like that too
