    There was a picture floating around with a white looking keyboard area. And there's talk of a capitance keyboard then it clicked in my head. It's going to be like a laptop trackpad. Then you can do some stuff a bit easier then with just the thump track pad. Zoom in and not have your hand blocking the screen and leaving smudges etc. Two finger controls for scrolling and stuff it'll be sweet.

    Also why is the Windermere/ q30 still in the rumour section? Isn't it in the developer software for screen size?

    It's high time BlackBerry should throw a teaser or an official statement on this device. It will help them to create a launch pad andd will generate huge hype..

    Comeon BlackBerry..bring q30 ON!!!

    I wonder if that's going to happen during the earnings call next week? Do they ever do that type of thing?

    They might be reporting less than fantastic numbers, but to circumvent another stock collapse they could be using the Q30 launch as potential stock buoyancy ? Anyway I don't even know if that is something they would do - ie. reveal the details of a rumoured device on an earnings call?

    Any one else have any thoughts?

    I think the OP is spot on. Even if it isn't released with track pad like functionality, it will in the software updates at a later date.

    If I recall, the person that made the plastic model said he/she ran out of black color for the keyboard... lol

    Ah, here we go, this is it

    That touchpad idea you mentioned sounds awesome, would really make the device even more innovative and even more productive

    ya it those white keys that made me think laptop trackpad. Cause to loom at a normal keyboard you still think keyboard but when I saw that I was like oh I get it. Then I started thinking bout what you could do with a track pad that large on a phone

    i am SO curious to find out how blackberry is going to incorporate keyboard characters and numbers on the Passport without alt and sym keys. Personally I think it would be kind of annoying to have to swipe down for 2-3 pages of symbols and then tap the touchscreen to insert basic punctuation like a comma etc.

    cant wait till we get that figured out
