    Went to visit my parents last night. While there I had a few texts and work emails come in. I started typing away on my Q10. After about 2 mins of sending some texts and emails my mother says, "why don't you get that new bigger BlackBerry Passport?" This blew me away because my mother is 69 yrs old and doesn't own a cell phone and is lost around a computer. After I picked myself up off the floor, I said mom how do you know about the Passport? I then said, "Guess what I ordered Friday, ShopBlackBerry.ca had a great deal Friday". Mom then says, can I try it when you get it. Again I had to pick myself up off the floor.

    Your mom sounds like my mom, only she already has a Q5. She saw the Passport on the news and asked me why I hadn't ordered one yet. She's 74.

    That's awesome!!! You have the best mom out there. We should have her in a commercial about how she uses the Passport.

    That's interesting... maybe she's secretly an uber CrackBerry genius of geniuses with 10,000 posts... lol

    But seriously I showed my mom over a BBM video call the other day (she's currently using a son-issued Z10, after her old Tour died) and she didn't immediately discard it as some ridiculously large phone. Instead she said: it has "real" keys and a big screen... looks like it's made for me. She didn't like the price, but that's typical.

    Awesome, gave mum a Q10, I doubt she's gonna want my passport. She loved her 9780 until I took it off her hands.

    I was just thinking that I should buy my mum a Passport. She's always complaining that her phone isn't big enough for her to read things clearly (she has a Nokia Lumia 920 which is already quite big).

    But the width of the Passport must make things so much easier for those who increase the font size throughout the OS.

    Once I get my Passport, I'm sure she would be interested in one too. Until she sees the price. Typical mum, right.

    No, giving her a Q10 might be a mistake. My mom has a good old Nokia, but doesn't see the point in buying a smartphone because she can't see on it without glasses. She is interested in passport though (and GS4), but.. not at that price

    Q10 from a 9780 is an update imo

    My wife hangs on to phones for years. She only does basic stuff with her 9900. I live with my Z10 in my hand and yet, even she has ordered a Passport! I will have to wait till Feb!
