    I never noticed it since I put a CF wrap on it after a few days of use. Once this skin wears out or starts peeling I'll probably get a leather skin for it like that zagg one posted(where did you get it?)...except black of course .
    I purchased the one for an iPad and cut it to fit! They don't sell one for passport as far as I know.

    Found it for 10$ on ebay

    Not ALL passports. I got mine the day after launch and it has no sign of any discoloration or contamination of any sort around the BlackBerry logo on the back.

    That's what I thought about mine too until I took a good look under various lighting conditions. Hopefully you are a lucky one with a flawless Passport (not that it bothers me that much).

    It just cleans off. Use an actual cleaning fluid and a rag and it goes away entirely.

    It's very hard to notice, and absolutely does not affect anyone's experience with the Passport.

    Just a little bit of regular dish soap on a kitchen towel, with a little bit of water. I rubbed the area around the logo and wiped it with the dry portion of the kitchen towel and it was gone.

    Same issue here, covered it with a leather skin so it's no longer visible lol, downside is that you can't see the logo anymore.

    Is it me or does the picture look like it has a bubble / crease diagonally through the middle? This looks really sharp and I was wondering about the adhesive that is used to adhere the skin/wrap to the phone? Did the edges lay down well and has any corners wanted to lift? Also does the hardshell case still fit or does this make the phone too thick?

    Again...looks sharp and I found the product on ebay for about $7 shipped...a no brainer IMO

    Updated: Found some for under $4 for the iPad 1...such a good deal.

    I think the bubble you see is just the lighting.

    I'm not sure how long it will hold up, but it's lasted for a few days now and the corners/edges seem to be sticking well.

    The hard shell case no longer fits well, I tried to put it on and it was really tight so I stopped because I was worried it might ruin the skin.

    But like you said, for under 10$, it's really a no brainer, especially since the iPad skin is enough material to cover the Passport at least 3 times.

    Oh yeah, I have it too on mind now that you mentioned it. It doesn't bother me at all. I don't use cases for my phone and over time the back surface will ware out anyways.

    Just got my passport two days ago but now after two days I see the stain. I tried cleaning it and it goes but the problem is it comes back. I tried using goo-gone (an adhesive remove) to no avail.

    It's a shame that for every device BlackBerry puts out there has to be some sort of quality issue. The PlayBook had the bulge around the logo, the Q10 with the infamous double typing, the Z10 doesn't sit flat, and now this.

    I'm eventually going to buy a case and will forget about the stain but I don't see a reason why BlackBerry cannot pick up on such issues. CrackBerry had the phone as a review unit and picked up on it. Why can't the tens or possibly 100s testing it at BlackBerry not pick up on this issue? It's seriously frustrating despite it being "only" an aesthetic issue.

    I have the same issue. I looks like the plastic cover that is on the back when you first take out the passport from the box. Seems that since the blackberry logo is slight raised, the plastic did not cover that area so the "glue" did not affect that area of the back. Only thing I can see why the mark is there.
