    I've done an incredible amount of research and I am not sure if I should go to the excitable Passport SE from my original Passport. I dual carry (I have an iPhone for work) and I still love my passport for personal use.

    Any suggestions/experiences to share?

    The SE is heavier and the keys are slightly less clickey than the original. I'm not fond of how the SE's chamfered metal edges feel against my hand and I bought a thick silicone clear case for mine.

    Ordered a brand new passport silver edition today! Only set me back $335 and the shipping was free!

    Can't wait to get it! I'm now in a nice and secure passport situation having a brand new SE and a perfectly serviceable backup.

    May I please ask you were you ordered it? ebay only have those "new" ones from hong kong, which are obviously refurbished devices (google huaqiangbei..)

    I have both and feel that the OG Passport has a better keyboard experience. But the overall body of the SE is better built, thicker, and more durable.

    I am using this one that I type with and just got one from a lady who kept hers complete mint shape with beautifully laid screen protector for only 225 Canadian. Then I also have a never used original black one. I plan on using them for years.

    Does anyone think they'll put the BlackBerry version of Android on the Passport? I don't want to do any of that side loading or patch stuff, but I'm sure BBOS10 won't be around too much longer.

    Downloading an app after you get Cobalt's fix loaded on is easy. It takes no time. The patch is also automated so very little to do. Android is NOT going to come to the Passport...it is a BB10 device and as things stand now, I have all apps I need working well.

    Just got my SE! So happy to have it. I appreciate everyone's advice and input. It is better IMO and I feel it's a bit sturdier.

    I was in your exact position. Decided to bite the bullet and get the silver. Trust me man, it is way better than the original. It's gorgeous and industrious. It's my favorite BlackBerry ever created. The keyboard is a lot better on the Silver and the speakers are louder. And the overall design is sexier. Do it man!
