    Any thoughts about the rumors on Oslo? I'm up for an upgrade soon. And I'd like to get the Passport. I've been using the Classic since January and I'm LOVING it.

    But my question was oriented towards the idea of waiting for the BlackBerry Oslo or get the Passport as soon as I can?

    I just bit the bullet and ordered the Passport instead of waiting. I really like the idea of the slider, but couldn't wait anymore. So, I bought the Passport from BlackBerry directly, and when the slider comes out, I'll use my upgrade for it.

    I actually tried buying the Passport from Bell yesterday, but they wouldn't sell it to me unless I picked a new plan. Even tried buying it outright from them, but they wouldn't sell me a sim for it to use on my current plan unless I paid more a month. Their customer service rep was left dumbfounded this morning when I called and said the store refused my $800 last night. Go team Bell!

    That's awesome! That's exactly what I did with my now-in-use BlackBerry Classic! I'm waiting for my upgrade to get the Passport. I've been eyeing it for months!

    Tomorrow is promised to no one, the Passport is an awesome device I've never enjoyed a phone this much, I've had it since November.
    At worst you'll be looking at a restocking fee if you don't like the phone, not sure if it'll set back your upcoming upgrade.
    So those are two things to consider, if you can look for a used fair priced one.
    Myself and my wife has one, as stated above if you have the Classic you'll love the Passport.
    I came from a Bold 9900 and Q10 and since having the Passport I've cancelled service to the Q10 and use it as a media player for music and movies via hdmi to television.

    I bought my Passport from Bell, end result is had to change my plan and now pay $5 less a month than my old plan AND I paid $99 for the Passport. That's not bad there!

    Why do you want to wait for the same thing when you can have it now?

    All details of the Oslo (even the codename Oslo) are conjecture, guesses or plain bull at this point.

    I'd go with the one that exists.

    Passport now.

    It's even better with 10.3.2 and who knows when the Oslo will even be available? It could be a year.

    The Bell salesman just didn't want to do it because if he doesn't change your plan he doesn't get a commission.

    Typical cell phone store salesman attitude which is created by how they get paid with incentives.

    As someone who just recently switched from the Classic to the Passport, I can say without question that you'll thoroughly enjoy the Passport. It's an awesome device.

    Update: The device is apparently not meant specifically for the China market - and is supposed to launch as a Globally available device.
    Who knows what rumors are correct... but I really see no point in a duplication of the Passport. And I don't see any reason to do an upgraded Passport that is targeted at China (where BlackBerry is a fish out of water), or that would make the just picked up by AT&T Passport obsolete. So this maybe an less expensive version of the Passport, if it is anything.

    Pretty much this. Get what you want from what's available, or wait. All depends on your situation, just don't wait for the sake of waiting for the next big thing. Me? I'm a waiter. I like to see what other people have to say about a device and put it in my hands before I decide on it. Did that with the Passport myself. Tried it out for a week and decided being able to one hand my device is more important to me then all of the awesomeness it brings. At least for right now. Tried the Classic in the store and then bought another Q10
