    best accessories you can add to the PP is a Bluetooth Keyboard from (inateck BK1003 ultra-slim) and a (Logitech T630 ultrathin Bluetooth touch mouse) working grate for stationary use, all still highly portable, very recommended, actually using it with my Classic right now.

    and yeah about a BT headset... as a 3rd BT device connected in conjunction with the BT keyboard and BT mouse, the Jabra ROX works well too, actually all three BT devices at the same time.

    If you don't have two thumbs get those as soon as possible. They are definitely MUST haves for enriching your Passport experience!

    On the serious side a Plantronics Edge bluetooth headset, a Slimport adapter, a Stilgut case or a Seidio (depends on your preference) and a tempered glass screen protector.

    Wonder about the tempered glass screen....
    Is it needed for the PP?
    Thought it has the Gorilla glass screen, wonder because I'm using a Classic since 13 month without anything on the screen and have no scratches at all.
    Pure interest because I will get my PP next week to accompany the classic.

    well ok that's a point.
    I guess it all coming down to the grade of misuse of a device some how.

    now there is another Accessoire that may coming to be useful with a PP and Classic, it's the BB VisorMount VM-605 for use in vehicles, linking the BlackBerry mobile via BT to the car stereo and enables BB Assistent with all it's function too.
    This VM-605 is no longer available by BB, but can be found on Amazon from time to time, managed to get one for 20 brand new a few month ago and that works a treat as a in car hands free device management.

    Here are few more little nifty accessories that will definitely improve functions if it comes to Audio-notes and voice recording and Pod-cast in generally, be it for interviews, meetings or even and specially Video recording.

    Talking about external high quality mini-MICs to cut out unwanted noise that normally will be picked up by the internal device microphone.

    so here is what I found:
    plucks right in to the 3,5mm socket, yes this are the Apple version with the usual 4-pole contacts!
    EDUTIGE i-Micro Speech OmniDirec EIM-001
    -22 dB (1kHz - 1Pa) at: 50-18.000 Hz and S/N Rate: 58 dB+

    EUDTIGE i-Micro Music/Speech OmniDirec EIM-003
    -37 dB (1kHz - 1Pa) at: 20-20.000 Hz and S/N Rate: 62 dB+

    both with the a adapter for directional use:
    EUDTIGE L-Adapter 4-4 Pol ETG-001 white-dot

    EUDTIGE Uni-Directional‎ Mic ETN-008
    -38 dB (1kHz - 1Pa) at: 100-12.000 Hz and S/N Rate: 69 dB+
    can be used but need a different adapter:
    EUDTIGE L-Adapter 3-4 Pol ETG-003 blue-dot

    By using this quite inexpensive, easy to carry external microphones enables to produce crystal clear sound recording on any BlackBerry device, testet with my Classic but will be used mainly for the PP which I receive next week.
    And YES it works in conjunction with a BT headset for easy audio control too, in my case a Jabra ROX.

    Total length incl. the adapter sticking out, is only 5cm, with the windscreen it's 5,5cm and is very light weight, no need for any stabilisation.

    Another nice and very helpful device is a ANKER PowerPort-6 (60W 6-Port USB-Charger) for all your little useful BlueTooth equipment that wants to be charged at ones or individually without the need of several single charging plugs, definitely a great addition.
    So this way I can charge my BB-Classic, BB-Passport, BT-keyboard, BT-mouse, Pebble-Steel, BT Jabra headset, BB VM-605, BB HS-250 at any time in a very easy way and only need one wall socket instead of a whole bunch of cable and different power adapter all at the same time.
    Very handy for travelling to for small packing.

    And if all the other lovely gear is not enough, you can add a lot more little tiny but essential kit to your travelling pouch making full use of the Passport or Classic capabilities.

    mandatory a wall socket and vehicle charger, with short flat microUSB cable, a SlimPort HDMI adapter, and to be able to make use of external USB storage you will need a Piggy-Tail USB adapter cable too, some small USB Thumb drive adapter and a few microSD cards.
    Got all this stuffed in a small flat 17x13cm Zip-bag to carry if on the road.

    just for anything that requires audio recording to get much better voice quality, specially for taking video and to cut out background noise.

    Well put it like that...
    BlackBerry devices are mainly known as business phones, but can be used as Multimedia device too.
    Typically Apple devices are considered for this sort of work, hence to the many accessories on the market for iOS devices like camera lenses, grips, external microphones and what not, just a big eco-system, but many of this kit can be used for Blackberry too, just make use of it.
    Blackberry device in the public view are business phones, but can be a multimedia device as well, partly this is the success of Apple phones, why not using Blackberry devices for the very same thing, producing Pod-cast, YT videos and so on.
    For instant I'm about to order a "Shoulderpod R1 Go Rig" for my Passport for Video and interview work, paired with the EDUTIGE mic it would be a very productive setup... specially becauese EDUTIGE has a several extension adapter cable to use this Mic's as Lapel Mic, clipped to your shirt.
    http://www.edutige.net
    no need to get a iPlonker device for that.

    another nice addition for the Passport!
    WD My Passport Ultra 1TB - USB 3.0 external HD

    two things are needed to make use of this 1TB HD that is pre-format as NRFS by default for WIN10, 1st you need a "microUSB 2.0 OTG adapter" for the BB-Passport and exFAT format.
    yep the WD is USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatible with its own cable.

    actually to make use of this HD with the Blackberry Passport the HD needs to be in exFAT format otherwise it will be recognised by the BB-Passport but gives an error (check USB settings), after that is done on a WIN PC or iOS-MAC the "WD My Passport Ultra 1TB HD" is fully accessible for further use with the BB-Passport, grate extension for the BB-Passport while travelling.
    And a 1TB HD for 54 on Amazon... well couldn't resist.

    Side note!
    The same setup will "not" work with my BB-Classic because of the USB 3.0 but the same microUSB 2.0 adapter works with any USB 2.0 Stick or external HD, this is just a lack of hardware support with the Classic, doesn't bother me, while it is a nice extension to my BB-Passport which sitting on the desktop anyway as mini-Pablet still with BT-mouse and BT-keyboard.

    I second tempered glass screen protector. Won't catch me without one.

    200GB microSD card, Sandisk has them on Amazon for $79. This one's a no-brainer.

    CardNinja or another type of wallet equivalent. Here's mine on my Q10, I'll be getting a black one for my Silver Edition.



    Some sort of way to add AT&T Passport's wireless charging capabilities to the Silver Edition

    Camera lens cover for the Silver Edition (they're available on Amazon and eBay), to keep my 13mp pictures looking fresh as possible going forward.

    Electric "arc" "plasma" windproof USB rechargeable cigarette lighter. I picked this one because it was the thinnest I could find. I don't smoke but it never hurts to have a light, and this one's a conversation starter. Guess where I'm going to slip it? Yup, into the CardNinja. Some people want their phones to be as thin as possible, as for me, bulk me up (as evidenced by my extended Q10 battery). The more to wrap my hands around, the better. Besides, I've always forgotten my wallet, I never forget my phone.



    I went with black because it appeared to be the least tacky. And finally...

    WalletNinja or some sort of equivalent. Still researching this one. I'd like one with a pentalobe screwdriver (I fix iPhones) but I'm afraid that doesn't quite exist yet.



    Edit: So I have done my research, Tool Pen Mini APlus edition http://mininch.com/store/tool-pen-mini



    Along with a LighterBro Micro



    My Passport Silver Edition > yours
