    Q10 is a more usable phone in public. The Passport borders on being a tablet imo. I miss my Q10, but I'm enjoying the Passport too.

    Passport + Bluetooth headset = more usable than Q10 effectively.

    LOL ... I haven't upgraded yet... but you can watch a video about it (posted here in the site, I think it was Bla1ze who did it)... You get suggested words as soon as you begin typing... like "Hello, how are you?" : As soon as you type "H" word suggestion shows "Hello", so you just swipe up. You can then write a lot, only by swiping, not typing!

    I went to T-mobile to get a nano-SIM and the manager was blown away by the Passport. He wanted to try it out and didn't want to give it back. He said "I was always a BlackBerry man and I can't believe we're not selling these."

    By then we had a group of customers gathered around, wanting to know where I got it...

    Posted from my Q10.
    That. Is. AWESOME!!

    Forgive me for indulging myself in a moment of smugness, because I thought there was at least a chance of this kind of reaction. The market is clearly ready for something different.

    I'm thrilled and envious, since I won't be getting mine until Wednesday, but I look forward to the reactions I'M going to get.

    Hi guys, newbie here and as you can see i have just registered myself specially for this thread...

    Got my passport couple of hours back. Still charging and without going into the mechanics, let me tell you guys that this beast of a machine - on looks alone - drips 196g of pure AWESOME!!!!!!

    Will parade this gem to my colleagues on Monday and share with all on their first reactions..At the store front, heres what they say:

    1) Some boy's dad - "I want to try this thing...u go play with the *phone."
    2) Teen - "why didn't i see this first?" (He just purchased something else i guess)
    3) My partner - Told you so... ( she is already using a PP since ytd lol)

    Anyway, it took me 3 hours of scouring the country and bashing through 4 outlets of different service providers before i could find one...

    Pls, do urself a favour...go get one...go with the better fruit...smaller but packed with antioxidants. =]

    We have a winner...

    Every single person who has seen mine has commented on how large it is, but when they get it in their hand they realise it's only really as big as most phablets, it's just shorter and wider (there's definitely a ***** joke in there somewhere). Generally though, people have been impressed with it. (still sounds like a ***** joke)

    I certainly am. This is my first ever Blackberry and I love it already. Screen is beautiful, browsing is a breeze, and typing is fantastic - even without the predictive swipe feature. I've not used a physical keyboard since Windows Mobile days, and I've missed it.

    Nope, different than Z10 because Z10 each letter could have its own 'up select word', but on PP, it's 3 across the keyboard, one per 'section'

    Sales guy at att when I got my nano sim. "Whoa, blackberry still makes phones? ". I quickly reminded him that it will be exclusive to them. Manager was not aware. Hot looking milf smiled at me while husband played with the iphone6...

    I love this thing. Like OP observed, this device easily gets more attention than the Q/Z series ever did. Maybe the Z30 was the first exception, but the other ones just looked way too generic. The Q series looked too much like legacy for anybody to give them more than a glance, and the Z10 just looks like any other phone out there.

    But the Passport looks unique, and that has gotten the attention of quite a few people already.
    "Wow, is that a BlackBerry? I used to love them, is this the kind of device they make now?"
    "What happened to the keyboard? Wow is it touch responsive, that is amazing!"
    "What a weirdly shaped device isn't it too big? Oh wow ebooks and images look amazing on that size!"
    "Can you even type one-handed on that thing? Oh wow the dictation and Voice Assistant are incredible!"
    "Wow, finally a device that tries to do something new!"

    And I only took it outside for two days so far. I can't wait to get the official Flip case, that would totally make it stand out more.

    Wife with a desperate look in the eyes: "ANOTHER BlackBerry?? Well show me what is capable of.. I can see that you really like it" and then waiting for half an hour of explanations about the phone and Blend..

    Lol if this is not love..

    Got the same response from my Wife. She happened to be out of town when I ordered it and I had it in hand when I picked he up at the airport. She was once a BlackBerry user, and now is in the iPhone camp...but did not give me too much hardship for pulling the trigger since she went on a 7 day vacation without me.....payback I assume.

    I have posted this on another thread, but while I was waiting to get my refund at the apple store, I was checking my email and immediately drew a crowd asking what I was using. I told them it was the new BlackBerry passport and showed them the device and I heard their jaws hit the floor.

    After showing off the device for 20 minutes, I finally told them where they could buy one and how much the device cost. Just as they all started to get excited, I finally said it was sold out and they would have to wait to get one. Then I smiled, got my refund and left. God that felt great.
