    Would the Passport get the Paratek antenna that Z30 has?

    Paratek is just a marketing buzzword, but sure.

    My marketing buzzword gets great reception in testing for remote areas...other brands with more marketing buzzwords failed. Testing done by a Telco, not "a guy I know who has a Friend who said"

    Paratek was the name of a company that BlackBerry acquired.

    BlackBerry doesn't do marketing.

    Agreed on this point. Some have suggested that the Z30 owes some of its great battery life to the Paratek antenna as well, since it doesn't have to hunt for signals to the same degree.

    Correct on the Paratek and yes they do marketing, very little and not very well. The only glimmer of marketing light is the Mercedes Benz Formula 1 Team... let's see what they do on the release of the Passport, couldn't be worse than the release of the Z10.

    Natural Sound is only in BBM Video and Voice.. it's not on regular phone calls. And the other person has to be on a BlackBerry 10 device. How often does this really happen for the average user? For me, not often at all.

    But I think the advertising with Mercedes F1 is great this is really good marketing for BlackBerry... because many people watch Formula 1... and Mercedes is winning at the moment

    Apparently BlackBerry and mercedes have a correlation? Something about being on the rise again?
    Find it a bit odd myself? BlackBerry screwed up and need to work hard to regain ground. Mercedes? .... bought Chrysler .... No I'm sure its about getting back into F1.

    For me Paratek Antennas are cool things... so Blackberry should say: hey guys... Passport has a better Paratek-Version than the z30... this is important for people who buy a Blackberry... in two words: good reception -> so please add Paratek to your advertising of the Passport Blackberry it must stay as a feature...

    I have been in several situations with friends with iPhones where I get service and they do not. My limited real world testing of the Paratek antenna finds it outstanding!
