    Be warned. Once you are used to the wide screen Passport there is no way back to a narrow screen device. It is very addictive. Just FYI...

    It's true, I had to go back to my iPhone 4 the other day to find an old text message and it was so small and fiddly.

    I still think we need a full touch screen version of the Passport.

    I wholeheartedly agree! I didn't think it would at first, but you're right.

    what's wrong with videos? The black bars? The actual video size is still about the same size as a iphone 5 screen, ignore the sides if you want

    6.5" diagonal (3.2" x 5.7") 16 x 9 screen with 2560 x 1440 resolution? That's a huge killer device. That would get people talking, and hopefully buying. Make it a toolbelt slider like my avatar and you get all that AND a device that can be operated mostly with one hand. WOW.

    You bring up another fine example of how companies let the weak-minded rabble ruin things for the rest... it used to be the standard that computer screens had 16 x 10 aspect ratios with high res screens being 1920 x 1200... but the weak-minded rabble didn't get that the black bars were a 'good thing' on computer screens, because it meant among other things that on-screen controls could appear BELOW a movie rather than on the picture itself... and when using the computer for other things, there was 120 pixels more 'information' on the screen.

    Now computers have 1920x1080 screens instead. 'good. no black bars!'. Sometimes humanity makes me feel like Charlton Heston at the end of Planet of the Apes.

    And yet, it still not that great to watch.

    Yep used an iPhone the the other day and I don't kknow why they didn't come up with the idea long before. I guess everyone was caught up in the battle for narrow phones to beat Apple.

    If you want to be mainly a consumer by watching videos and playing games, buy a $150 Amazon Kindle Fire HDX. It has fantastic battery life and is also a good document reader for PDF documents.

    BlackBerry has no hope of competing in that market. If you want to be a producer of content (using a keyboard for input), then the PKB on the Q10 or Passport make much more sense.

    Say what you want, but no phone does portrait view videos better than the Passport.

    That's cause when people watch videos on their phone, they use the landscape mode.

    You realize how ridiculous a square screen touch only device is right? Get a tablet. You own a passport you don't need a touch only version

    I only watch videos on my Passport if I don't have access to my tablet or TV.

    Otherwise, why even bother? Use the right tool for the job.

    I agree with a full touch passport. Maybe a little longer though.

    For me, this is true as well. Whenever I take up my Z10, it seems "otherworldly".
