    Today at construction site from my client - "I didn't see that kind of BlackBerry yet" and that's in Poland where BlackBerry is even more exotic.

    Before buying Passport I wanted to make sure that size will be acceptable for me so I've made a cartoon model bacause of lack real Passport in the wild. I've showed it to my friend who used Note3, he laughed at first, then checked it out again and put it back. Week later I've meet him and he shows me a brand new white Passport

    My first Passport

    Most people love it, only very few thing it's ugly, esp. the wide form factor.

    Strange enough all women love the device, find it nice, beautiful, sexy. The people who call it ugly are all men... I would have expected it the other way.

    Getting much positive attention with it ...

    I don't understand why Blackberry doesn't launch a worldwide campaign under slogan "Blackberry: alive and kicking!" Please spend some millions on a proper adv campaign and will be rewarded. Just my half cent.

    My friends - all are BB fans dragged me out to try it. They love it but still not convinced enough for getting it.
    I myself find it awkward to type.
    But most of the people are surprised seeing It. Touching, feeling it.

    I was in the office the other day speaking to one of the Managers about a Cloud based service that we are looking at. I have a I had my Passport on the sender when a reminder went off. I picked up my Passport and he asked 'what's that'? I told him a BlackBerry Passport, and kettle him look at it. He has a 5 year old personal BlackBerry and didn't even know BlackBerry had new handsets. Needless to say I caught him 30 minutes later on his work laptop surfing the BlackBerry website.

    Passport. The way forward.

    Last Friday I was at a small get together, and people kept saying, of course the most closed minded comment "They still make Blackberries?" "that's not a phone that's a tablet." Then I started playing music through my Passport, and one of the guys says "that's not a phone, that's a boom box." I was like, damn right! Dual stereo speakers

    First negative reaction: tier-1 IT guy at my lunch table goes out of his way to tell me it's ugly, once he recognizes it as a BlackBerry. I tell him that's a rude thing to say...do people go around telling each other that their cars are ugly? (hint: most new cars are hideous, but if you went and told that to someone after they made a purchase with their hard-earned $$$, they should rightfully punch you in the face)

    I swear, Internet tough guy Fandom has made iPhone/Android users forget perspective. It's a goddamned phone, and it's not yours. I also suspect BlackBerry's future success will hinge on a rebrand for that reason. People see the name and have a natural aversion/negative reaction to BlackBerry. Was BBOS really that bad? Because my first BlackBerry device was a Q10, so I am looking at this as a fresh OS. I suspect that if the phone had just the BBRY logo, or even the letters QNX all over, people would rave about how innovative the new phones are.

    I like to whip it out and play with it in public. It's kinda funny how people try to look without looking like they're looking. One guy just stared outright, that made me feel a bit uncomfortable so I put it back in my pants.
    What a hoot! Good thing I remembered this thread is about the Passport!

    Yesterday I persuaded my gf to buy the z30 because that's a great phone. In the store they have a BlackBerry passport demo unit and I then showed her the unique screen and the great scrolling keyboard. She said its weird looking device. But after we bought the z30, she's longing for the passport. What's weird is that she doesn't like passport at first. But now she's eyeing for that after we just purchased a z30. O_O there's really something about the passport that warrants attention.

    Interestingly enough people are suprised that Blackberry is still making devices and definately do a double take on the Passport as it looks so different compared to most rectangle type shaped mobile devices. People are amazed by the shape of the passport and how the screen is so big and easy to see. Most people are surprised at this device and never knew it was available.

    I was at a store to make a purchase and needed to show a card that's on my phone.

    The girl said "omg, I want this phone too! It has such a nice screen!"

    I asked my brother to sum up his initial impression of my Passport in one word and he said, " Refund."

    My mother's reaction was that of incredulity at anyone allowing this device to make it off the cutting room floor, what with its heft, width, and sharp corners. "At the very least...why couldn't they round the corners? This is one unattractive device."

    So, that's two individuals who won't be working wide anytime soon lol.

    I still need to get my dad and baby brother to weigh in.

    I was thinking you could've said to your mom in response "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" in relation to the Passport but then I thought that wouldn't go over well at all; guaranteed dog house!
