    Okay, it's just the $4 TPU Passport case I ordered a couple of weeks ago, but it has a cardboard replica of the Passport, aka Q30, which is fun and makes it easy to see how it'll be to hold and operate. More or less.

    The back:


    I know, it's lame, but we're starved for news lately.

    It looks awesome to me. I'm excited for this device. My Z10 died on me yesterday...the third one to do so. So I'm using a Nexus 5 until I can get my hands on the passport

    By the time it arrives from China, we'll nearly have the real thing in hand!

    On the semi-serious side, it feels like it'll be terrific to use two-handed. As for one-handed, it's a stretch to span the keyboard with a thumb. I can do it but I definitely have big hands. Using the keyboard as trackpad one-handed should be no problem.

    The screen size, even on the cardboard mockup, is truly striking. The real thing will have a real impact, I think. We've been putting up with letterbox screens for so long the Passport screen will feel like a whole new world.

    All that from a cheapo case!

    Haha OP. I ordered the same case just to get a real feel for the basic size. Lol

    If I'm comfortable with the overall size. After a short demo, I feel I'll most likely pull the trigger. I love my Q. But will admit the screen size on my girlfriends Z30 does make me a lil jealous at times.

    Just can't wait to see and give one a try.

    Just over two weeks.

    I always get these cheap TPU cases to start, then see if there's a more posh case that I want later. Sometimes I just stick with the cheap one. This material has good elasticity and does a good job absorbing shocks. I go for the clear so I can still see the phone through it. The stuff yellows over time, but it's no big deal to get a new one.

    Hope it actually fits. Though at $4, no big loss if it doesn't.

    Hmmmmm... Bla1ze... you know something we do not about dimensions of the final version.... ???

    PS: maybe you can order the case too, or ubizmo can lend it to you so that you can try it on that NDA protected super-duper test-passport blackberry may have given you...

    True that. This is actually a standard part of my new phone drill. I buy the cheap TPU case well before I even order the phone, so I have it when I do get the phone. As for fit... I imagine BlackBerry guarantees the dimensions when they release them to the aftermarket manufacturers. I'm not sure about that but it seems like basic good business practice.
