    So here it comes. One day delivery by Amazon.in is amazing and this sure is a great product. Moving from a Note 3, I feel the size is just fine... will share my experiences soon about the device.

    Kinda similar reaction at my work too. Everyone were just bonkers over the size and the keyboard functionality.... The keyboard feels ok to me but the "B" key feels flimsy. Not sure if its just me or anyone else noticed too?

    Got my passport yesterday afternoon! So, im the ONLY one at my job who uses a BlackBerry, everyone else is iOS or Android, but i must say EVERYONE had good things to say at 1st impression. This thing is huge compared to my Q10! Then i rushed out to an AT&T store after work to get my microsim (took 5 mins and was free) and this device called so much attention it was amazing!!! A whole bunch of AT&T Reps saying things like, "I need something like that", looking up the Passport specs on their PC's, asking to hold it, testing the camera, i showed off some of the keyboard tricks ... Wow this felt so good LOL! Passport has very good acceptance and i'm in south Florida, USA. Loving my new phone, getting used to the keyboard, Blend works AWESOME too!

    I got mine. So excited i forgot to take pics. But it was damn hard to get that phone here in Bulgaria. Needless to say i love it. No one else have it. And a week later i have some issues. Don't know if this is the place to ask but here are the things that i don't like. First thing: it works bad with my bluetooth device - BB HS-700. That headset worked perfect with Q10, Z10, Z30, and now it drops. Connects, than disconnects, than again. Nothing like this before. Wonder if this can be fixed with the update. Second: while in call, the screen turns black when you put it to your ear (and that's OK) but when you have second call and you want to operate, the screen still stays black, so you can't see who's calling and you cant switch, join or busy the call. That's really annoying. Third: some pages i used to visit with my Z30 now cannot open at all. Says plug-in not installed or something. And i must say i got no such problems with Z30. IMHO Z30 was the best i've ever had.
    Now i hope this issues with the Passport will be fixed cause it's really a great phone.

    Welcome to one of the best smartphone experiences you will ever have. I have not put mine down since I got it on October 2. I suspect your Bluetooth connectivity issues might be contingent on the device you are trying to connect to and not the passport. I am using a Plantronics M1100 headset and it connects very stable and flawlessly. In addition the connectivity with my car hands-free system is also very reliable. When you are receiving another call and the screen has gone black simply press the standby or on off button to reactivate the screen. As far as webpages I can say that 90% of the time I can access most links the rest of the time there are issues but not a major concern for me. Hope it improves for you.

    Mine is coming tomorrow and I have been wondering what I will have to do to change from Verizon to ATT, since the ATT site doesn't even mention the device. Are they going to just cheerfully open an account for me, switch my phone number open and pop in a nanosim? Or will I have to explain what the Passport is?

    I've had my Paspport for two weeks and I'm hoping to give my overview:

    The Phone is big. Let's face it - I've had multiple people say to me, whoa...Circa 1985 what is that?!?!?!? That is, until I talk to them about specs and what it can do. To further address hardware, the phone seems to be made from very high quality materials. The metal frame seems very solid, the keypad is the same as always. Brilliant. The Gorilla Glass seems great, so from a quality of build, I would say this phone / phablet gets 5 stars out of 5. There's not really anything lacking from a quality standpoint that I can see. One final note, I like that the back doesn't pop off. My Q10 seemed to be flexible where the removable back was, and that annoyed me.

    The camera excellent. Blackberry did a great job here. Where BB historically was not known for its photos, I think the quality of photos is as good if not better than Iphone / Note / Galaxy, etc. Let's put it this way - you would not look at a photo from this phone and say, "you should have taken that from an Iphone.

    The Battery life is a quality of battery that I have never seen on any device. I can literally be on my phone from 7:00AM and not have to charge it until I go to bed...and I still have 30 - 40% battery life left. No. Seriously. The battery life is all that. True story, I put my USB charger in my car in the glove-box as I do not have a reason for the charger anymore.

    The earbuds and overall sound quality kick the iphone right in the junk. Seriously. IPhone speakers are a joke to this phone (as is the Iphone battery and many other features). The sound quality is very clear on music. This goes for calls as well. Crystal clear. My favorite feature on the earbuds is the no tangle wire and clip to wrap the wire in when finished.

    Software: I honestly don't notice much difference on 10.3 - but that's probably my own ignorance. There seems to be some nice features integrated in the HUB, but I don't notice much else. I have not tried Blackberry Blend yet, but I hear very positive things about it. In fact, I have BB Blend ready to install on my PC and MAC right now so I'd be happy to report later on Blend.

    If I have any gripe, it is still about the Blackberry World and integration of the Amazon app store. Why? While I could get simple apps like Netflix in the Amazon app store for my Q10, I cannot get it on my Passport as I suppose the versions are not yet compatible, which is the case for several apps. In this regard, I still say Blackberry is failing. There is an alternative though. I called BB about this because I couldn't figure out why I could download Amazon apps from my cloud, but when I searched the Amazon app store I couldn't find it. The Blackberry Customer Service representative told me to go to a website and install "MOBOGENIE." This is like the Google Play store, but since we cannot get Google Play - this works INCREDIBLY WELL!!! I can get every app I ever wanted / needed. All my banking apps, travel apps like Tripcase, Marriott, Airlines, etc. Something to note here is the integrations of Blackberry Guardian which is freaking genius. Blackberry Guardian will actually check the app being downloaded on its servers to make sure the app is safe and there is no malware, etc. on the app. So, as long as the Blackberry Guardian app does not detect anything wrong, you are solid to download and install this app.

    So this is my quick and dirty review. I would give this phone about 4.5 stars out of 5 given the weird 2 or 3 app worlds necessary to get everything I need / want. I know people have their own opinions on the necessity of apps, but this is just my opinion.

    Hopefully this is some good insight folks: Order your Blackberry Passport today - you will not be disappointed!

    Saw today that they had it on shopblackberry.com so I cancelled my amazon order and ordered it from there. From the way they make it sound is that it should be here sometime next week.
