    Hi guys, Just wanted to know if any of you had any ideas to improve the Passport. I played with one today and had some minor points:

    1. The keyboard is great for scrolling, but one idea for improvement is if we could use the keyboard to zoom in or out. This could be done using:
    a. pinch to zoom
    b. tap to zoom

    2. The spacebar has been a problem for some (not me though). One way they could improve this is by extending the spacebar to the fourth row (standalone forthrow) which only includes the spacebar. I think this would help a lot of users.

    3. This is more of an OS thing, but I really liked Playbooks ability to switch between apps by swiping from the left or right. I think Passport could definitely be a big gainer from this considering that it is big and more difficult to maneuver around.

    Do you have guys have other improvment for Passport? Such a great phone, would love to see it improve more!

    1- space bar should stick up farther. It feels sunk in and doesn't have the solid click like the other keys.

    2- since the keys can sense your fingers why not have the option to use them like a touch screen instead of having to press them in.

    For #2 ppl like the tactile feedback of real keys. Otherwise why not just type on glass?

    Four rows of keys instead of three, like my Q10.

    How about having the predicted words show up just above the keyboard or the option to. I just find they are too high to really notice them while typing. If they were just above the keyboard my eyes wouldn't have to shift up to see them.

    Key board shortcuts to launch apps.
    Be able to configure lock screen to show current weather, stock values, news headlines, traffic conditions, sports scores, etc.
    Have Blackberry Assistant start with a specific chosen voice command i.e. not have to push a button.
