    Looks beautiful.
    Putting them side by side it feels as if the original passport is a test-device.
    Shame we can't get our hands on the rounded one as it's AT&T /US exclusive.

    i like the rounded design more for sure but this is stupid on BB part. You **** off some people that just bought the device and now you take on more manufacturing costs

    I honestly still like the traditional style...Looks classier to me. Maybe its just the pictures I've seen so far, but the new one looks cheaper/just like any other phone out there. I wonder if the rounded one will fix some of the manufacturing problems, though.

    Like the original. More distinctive. And better at delivering a death blow.

    I like the original, though the new design does resolve the structural weakness around the Y axis (the corkscrew bend). Regardless, I'd still choose the original design if I had a choice to do it again.

    I think the new rounded BlackBerry Passport will be a hit, but I agree it's a bit of a kick in the teeth for those who've already purchased the original BlackBerry Passport. I would like to see the new version of the Passport in Canada.

    I like the original. Square corners never bothered me. But I guess it can put off some of potential buyers.

    The new style looks like a mix with the Classic, it looks more traditional even in terms of BlackBerry. However I am not sure which style I like more, the edged design looks pretty unique for the unique device. It also relates better to the Passport - passport (device - pass) phrase BlackBerry built up prior release.

    Conflicted on the rounded edges but I like the slightly taller chin. More space to hold it with which means typing won't be as cramped.

    Not agree then the bottom row will be too low making the phone top heavy

    I am more astonished by the fact that BlackBerry will manufacturer a whole new device (essentially a new device) for a carrier. This is rather unprecedented. I wonder how many units AT&T promised to buy from BlackBerry.

    Obviously enough to be interesting enough in terms of financials for BlackBerry.

    Not sure if it has become taller or not, but the rounded corners make it look even more like a real passport. I think it looks Ok either way.

    I do have to agree with howarmat though. They have increased manufacturing costs, diluted the product range with another worthless variation, and set themselves up to be screwed by AT&T. I thought the plan was to focus on other international markets and not the USA, home of the iBelieve.

    Anyway, let's hope the contract with AT&T is watertight.

    I'm liking the extra space on the bottom more than the rounded corners. Overall the device looks nice either way.

    I'm on AT&T so will most likely pick one up. Glad I didn't yield to temptation to get the white one as a second device.

    I've never seen a passport with rounded corners.... As a matter of fact I just pulled mine out of the desk and nope, it's not rounded..

    It looks like a larger classic, I never liked the way the metal rim sits around the classic, a bit too uniform for me. And the keyboard on the new passport looks odd, there seems to be a lot more wasted space, are the keys smaller or something? Just doesn't have that premium look...well till its in the hand before one really knows. Based on pictures if I had to order again, I'd buy the original again....

    It just look bu++ugly. I was stunned by that ugly thang. Thought it was a prototype from 2012. It ruins the entire design concept. Of course, for those who watched the BlackBerry official video about the design of the passport.

    With the round corner it looks like a joke. Don't expect great reactions from that. They will laugh about it.

    Reminded me of this one:
