    There is also that little voice saying, "wait for the white version, and then make your decision" just don't want to purchase the Black version and then I love the white more :P

    Still all so very exciting and really eager to get one but I just have to do things properly and not make hasty decisions.
    I've heard the white version will look less premium than black.

    You are doing a good job of remaining rational. Keep it up! I don't doubt you will benefit from a price drop.

    I've lost it already and I want to experience the exclusivity of being one of the first local BBPP owners...I want to experience the looks of interest enjoy all of the attention...can't wait for next week Wednesday lol!

    I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Passport on Vodacom. Even gone to the extreme and ordered a flip case from the UK to arrive on the 12th hopefully. Might actually have a case before the actual phone lol. Need a greater variety of accessories though. I prefer the belt swivel case.

    Vodacom assured me that on Wednesday - Thursday they would have the device. Otherwise they will give me one for free the following week (jokingly obviously)

    Here's to us claiming a free device then.... Will make some inquiries as well. Will this be in store or online upgrade?

    That sounds like a price thats inline with the $599 thats being sold in America. This business of 10k is beyond ridiculous.
    I would say anything around R8,500 and below is fair game.

    As expected, Vodacom lied on their statement. The Passport will only be available next week "possibly"

    They now told me that there will be a new booklet "possibly" again with the possibly. Tomorrow (friday) which will have details in it about pricing ect.

    Matty, I ordered mine on the phone with Vodacom at 0821950 expecting delivery on monday. They have stock in the wharehouse. Follow Tahir Ally channel : C00045D9C. He is a wealth of information, not a Blackberry Elite member for nothing. And as a complete bonus, my Tan Flip case has arrived and is clearing customs as we speak. so I will have fone and pouch by monday. Good Luck, hope it works out for you

    Hey there. It's still as awesome as ever thanks! Charging it once every 2 days. Call quality is excellent too. Funny thing, I keep looking out for the hardware and software glitches as mentioned on CB, touch wood, nothing yet, but it makes me a little nervous. Waiters at a restaurant yesterday (Samsung users) spotted it on my table, asked politely if they could have a look. Later came back asking if they could take a photo of it. iPhone users at my table were in shock when I showed them the touch sensitive side of the keyboard as well as how cool BB 10 is. These were previous BB owners who lost their way over the years lol. The general consensus was WOW. They did say the usual "it's big". There was a current Bold user with us, told her about the Classic that's due soon, based on what she saw on the Passport, she will be upgrading to the Classic instead on an iPhone like her husband. Still waiting for a screen protector and case...Have you got yours yet? I phones all carriers this weekend looking for accessories and they don't even have the phones in stock yet...

    I'm going to lower my expectations so I hope to have an experience as cool as yours lol!

    Still waiting for mine. I'm hoping sometime this week. I did buy a cheapie Nokia Bluetooth earpiece for R150 in anticipation.

    I hear you on the necessity of buying protection. I'll keep my eyes peeled!

    Enjoy!

    Honest Review:

    I went to a vodacom store this afternoon to hold and play with one. Honestly I didn't think it was too wide, but it felt really thin compared to my Q5 . Typing on it is definatly a change, Since I'm so used to using a 4 row qwerty. But it's nice that the keys are bigger so it's easier to hit the right keys.

    Feels very premium and the screen is MASSIVE when I compared it to my Q5. Was such a joke lol. My Q5 looked like a kiddies phone. I personally would have liked a normal 4 row keyboard but it's a small issue that can easily be overlooked because there is so much more going for it

    So my beautiful Passport was delivered and I spent all of last night shifting things across and letting her get acquainted with all my details. This morning, everything is synced. all contacts are there etc. Just getting used to the enormous screen. My secretary a young Samsung user exclaimed in typical South African way..."Eish, that thing is huge, where do I get one?" The youth see the beauty in it too.

    Now for the customs dudes to clear my tan flip cover then I am all sorted. In the mean time I bought a small travel pouch to fit on my belt in the mean time to keep it safe. Just don't like carrying phones in the pants pocket.
    In Summary, if you have not done it yet...what are you waiting for??

    As far as i know there are no covers or couches that you can purchase... yet. i would say wait until late November to start seeing covers. You could order one online and then received it in a couple days

    Best of luck with your new Passport, hope you enjoy it!
