    Hi All,
    Currently I am using Nokia Lumia 1520 (I think it is still Windows Phone overall flagship with 6" full HD display, 20mpix camera, 4 core proc...) and BB Q10. I like display size, camera and multimedia of 1520 but I also like simplicity of Q10. Also, I need phisycal keyboard for mailing (just to mention, I am BB user for last 8 years or so (Bold 9000, 9700, 9000 and now Q10)). I am using 1520 primary for my personal needs and Q10 for my business needs.
    Do you think that Passport can integrate all that together in one device? Is there any possibility now to user Viber and Telegram for chat? I am already using WhatsApp but there is also need for other chat services.
    I am constantly reading about using android apps but I got fear that I will end with Passport using android (which I strongly dislike and have been using for last 4-5 years, and got no plan to use again for some time).
    Please, share your experience/toughts with me.

    Best regards,

    I've owned both devices and hands down the passport is the device to have the Sceen is beautiful the width just works with the keyboard. I wouldn't think twice about it.

    It depends on your needs. Since you already got a Q10, you should be very familiar with the OS and the app situation. If an Android app doesn't work on your Q, it most likely won't work on the Passport. However thanks to the much more powerful SoC, the Passport is able to run Android apps better than the other BB10 phones.
    For multimedia stuff like games or videos, the traditional screen ratio and bigger screen of the 1520 of course is a plus. For everything else that big 1:1 screen of the Passport is great.

    I loved the 1520.3 (RM928). It was one of those phones I wish I never sold. However, does the passport replace both Q and 1520. I have to say hands down it does. You won't regret it.

    I forgot one issue. On 1520 I am heavy user of Viber and Instagram. Anything about that? Is there any client available which is working right on BB10?

    You said you own a Q10, so you can already check yourself. For Instagram, there are two different native 3rd party clients called Inst10 and iGrann. Many people also load the Android. apk
    As for Viber, I haven't heard much good, you'll definitely need to load the Android. apk, I don't know though if that really works at all. Try it yourself on your Q10.

    Native wise Igrann I prefer over instagram the android version. As for Viber, it works just fine (android version). As the previous response indicated, try it on Q and see if it fulfills your needs.
