    I have been eyeing the Passport for weeks now. I'm using the Q10 and I love it a lot. But the screen is a little bit tiny for my need. The Classic could be perfect but spending 300 for a little bit bigger Q10 is probably not worth it IMO. So today I order a Passport I'm a big guy so the size is not of a problem. Other than that, I don't really see any worth-mentioning issues here. So yeah, wish me luck with the passport. I've never actually seen a PP before so don't really know what I'm about to witness in a few days lol.

    I have one question though, other than the size, anybody see any other uncomfortable thing? Not to mention the defective units, software problems.

    I used android before but when I move to BB10, it turns out that I don't really need all of those nonsense that I used to enjoy. And it's nice to have a pkb again.

    Here's a list of reviews to watch.
    I recommend PhoneDog's review, he summarizes quite well what to expect from the Passport, in real life.

    Love my PP, wouldn't go back to a all glass slab again.

    To my surprise, it wasn't as big as I expected, and anything else seems small now.

    I was also a Q10 user and I was not initially all that excited about the Passport. But I got to try one at the Heathrow Airport over the holidays and I was hooked.

    Now I have had my Passport for 2 weeks. I commute on a subway and do email and browse the Web while standing just about every day. The Passport still feels a bit awkward to me. I am 6'1" and have big hands, and I can kind-of wrangle it with one hand, but I worry about dropping it.

    The screen looks great and I can't stop playing with it, so I am happy. But, be prepared for a prolonged break-in period to get comfortable with it!

    Would love to hear your review of the device once you get it!

    In the first few days with the PP I liked it. After two weeks I loved it. After two months I crank on the keyboard like my old Bold (typing under the table, etc.) It's an awesome device -- you'll love it

    O boy, when you see it for the first time in the flesh, it will be a polarizing experience. NO matter how many web pics and reviews you read, nothing prepares you for this beast in real life.

    I remember walking into my local carrier to see one just after it launched, and when I saw it, played with it, and walked out, all I was thinking was "am I making a mistake buying this? its soooo different, am I sure its right for me?".

    Fast forward, and after a week or two of ownership and using it, BEST device ever, I can't go back to a narrow screen phone anymore.

    BlackBerry faithful here, and I can honestly say that this is the best BB device I've ever had the pleasure of owning. And I've owned quite a few. After a quick learning curve you'll love it.

    I tried a Classic at a mobile store today side by side with a Passport. The screen of Passport is just stunning. Have been using Passport for a couple of months, I feel I can't go back to any narrow or small device. Too spoiled!

    Did the same thing. I came from a Q10 and I have never seen the Passport before. No regrets so far. I'm still struggling with the size sometimes when I'm on the road. It's not the most compact phone in the world. However, when you can use both hands and you have to work, this thing is priceless.

    You won't regret your purchase pal... you are buying real state: screen, form factor, physical keyboard, solid and trusty bb10, and as a result of all variables interacting as a whole ( a real system) you will get an astounding battery life...

    Try using the external hard case. Makes holding and typing so much better.

    I had a budget to buy any phone in the world, I choose the Passport. I don't regret it and not one bit jealous of any iPhone 6 or Samsung owners. The wide screen is a pleasant to read on and the OS gesture and navigation is a breeze.

    Stay positive despite what other haters say about your phone and you will confidently love your Passport. Oh yes, there will be some of those kind of people looking to break you because you own a piece of technology that is out of this world different.

    Same. Mine should arrive Wednesday or Thursday and I'm coming from an iPhone 6+. I am excited to get started on the passport and that larger, square screen. And super excited for The Hub again! The Hub and Gestures really are such a great feature of the BB10 software!

    Mine came today and let me say I'm very impressed. It's funny because only after a few minutes of use I already think my 6+ looks too narrow. The Passport seems extremely well build and I don't find it too wide at all. Initial impressions are VERY positive.
