    So I got the passport yesterday and love it. Was one of the fortunate discount weekend shoppers. Here are my questions, does anyone know when the leather flip cases going to be released?

    Also, I downloaded Spotify from the amazon app store, everything runs smooth but the phone does get pretty hot/warm when using the app. Does anyone else run into this issue?

    I believe the black leather flip case should be shipping sometime this month. The tan leather flip case should ship next month and shop crackberry are taking preorders right now.

    With regards to spotify, not quite sure. I would just do a hard reset by holding the power button for 20 seconds I believe and see if that will work.

    Okay thanks for the answers. Can't wait to see the leather flip case.

    Also tried a hard reset but the phone stills gets pretty warm near the volume buttons when using Spotify and battery drains a bit faster. Might try sideloading spotify instead and see if that works better.

    Any media player or game, especially Android Runtime based, uses a lot of CPU/RAM, so it is totally normal for the device to become hotter and drain the battery when using.

    Of course it shouldn't become burning hot and it shouldn't empty your battery in an hour. But from what I can tell, heat management on the Passport is way better than it was on the Q.

    I searched for it in the Amazon App store and it popped up immediately.

    Ah alright, that makes a lot of sense. Guess I'll just be more selective on when I use Spotify or not.

    It should be there, but there are ongoing issues with the Amazon Store. Many people can't see all the apps.

    I am in Canada and can get the app. I don't use it but it is there to download and Spotify just expanded their service to Canada.
