    When I picked up a Passport almost a year ago, I knew it was the best mobile device I had ever used (from my personal perspective).

    So decided to convert my entire company to them! Greatest move ever.

    Everyone that uses a Passport knows how great they are at so many different tasks. For those that are thinking about bringing Passports into your business, you won't be disappointed.

    If you want any questions answered about the Passport on a business front, I'd be happy to help. Check out the profile on our transition on Blackberry.com.

    Great write-up. I agree with what I read. This device is amazing. My tablet is obsolete and my laptop serves only a few purposes now.

    Nice article and it's true dat business with a BlackBerry are more succesfull with a BlackBerry for work. I visit a lot of office and workplaces and people playing games instead of working or sales person must open apps al the time while on BlackBerry is everything in the HUB where you can answer staight away without opening an app. It's those second and handling that makes Iphone and Android users little behind business.

    The most Business users using the phone only for calling and that is where BlackBerry is better than iphone with better sound, speakers, better reception and lower dropp calls and social media like email and Whatsapp and that is much better on the BlackBerry thanks to the HUB.

    Still they buy iphone and starting complaining about reception, drop calls in the car and switch problems. Also complaining about data uses thanks to wifi plus and hanging downloads or uploads. The Blackberry has more options to send and also to read smaller packages and for abroad it's the best phone too. You can send foto more compressed, you can use winzip for document and BBM helps sending also document and foto'swith lesser data.

    So still they wanted Apple because they are afraid that the can not use social media or phone calls. No employees wanted it because they know if the going back to BlackBerry they will get a worktool instead of a toy. It's there view because BlackBerry can handle spotify and Netflix very good and you also find your social media apps on BlackBerry.



    So I lke to see more business open there mind for BlackBerry because lot of them blind what a real phone can do.

    It's very refreshing to read the about the experience of a "Real Enterprise User." There is a definite tone of active "work" and "business" to your use of the Passport that is absent in most articles and reviews of popular mobile devices; they usually just take a quick look at the hardware, software and give a like/don't like opinion.

    When mobile computing was becoming possible with the early devices like the Nokia N800, I was excited about being able to do all the things I could on a desktop. I still have my N800 and use it from time to time. It's disappointing that the iPhone drove the industry towards a more simplified ecosystem of platform-specific apps instead of driving the industry to adopt more efficient, standardized technologies.

    I'm glad that BlackBerry remains committed to BB10 because it is, to me, the only remaining mobile computing platform/company that retains the vision of true mobile computing. They continue to partner with companies offering standard tech like HP, QNX is full of standard certifications and the platform as a whole enables more fluid productivity.

    Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I hope that BlackBerry will stay committed to BB10 OS even the existence of BlackBerry-Android devices.

    The main concerned is, BlackBerry has no resources to maintain and update two (2) OS's... sooner or later, they have to drop the support to either one of them i.e. most likely the one which is not profitable...

    I also think it depends on what kind of android they are going to be running. If they keep it stock with only a few differences I think they could maintain android and bb10 phones. If they overdo it and add tons of features then I think we could see the end of bb10. All they need from android is google play services, so I think they are going to do just enough to please google and finally close the app gap for good.

    Nicely written article: "Axiom selected BlackBerry Passports for their staff because they wanted to empower employees to do more with their smartphones."

    Joshua: Blackberry has a winner with 10.3 so, that will not be dropped.
    I too wish them to keep committed to BB10 OS.
    Android is included on their phones to get a few people on board, especially younger folks who would use more apps. And gives the non-iphone people a place to go as well.

    BlackBerry won't be rid of their functioning and solid OS; despite numbers, which has a great background in security. Can't tell you how awesome it is to see the German chancellor merkel walking around with her BlackBerry Z10.
    Maybe Android can learn something about security from BlackBerry on that point.

    I hope that BlackBerry will stay committed to BB10 OS even the existence of BlackBerry-Android devices.

    BlackDroid is a terrible idea. If I wanted a droid, I'd buy a Moto/Samsung. But I want a secure, fast smartphone that is NOT full of rubbish bloatware.

    I also want to use if for work, not to play Angry Turds and watch porn 24/7.

    I really wish that BlackBerry will concentrate and focus more on BB10 OS rather than adopting other platform to their devices. BB10 is really a wonderful mobile phone OS - both for security and productivity! Don't know why others wouldn't see it.

    But reality check will tell us that BlackBerry is still a business oriented organisation. They have to be profitable and stay profitable even it meant of changing their business focus, prioritisation and evolving to something else they are not before.

    I knew a lot of small organisations who are fond to utilize BlackBerry on their business operations. But most of them are reluctant because of uncertainty with BlackBerry future - especially now that rumour of BlackBerry adopting Android OS on their future devices...

    It's a terrible idea because you think it's a terrible idea? If BlackBerry offered Google Play Edition devices like other OEMs do and sold them through the Play Store, yet kept standard BBOS device, how then does it affect you?

    I think a Nexus-like stock Android experience with Hub and other security features would be welcomed in the Android community and fill a niche in the Android market for PKB devices, a niche that doesn't exist at all.

    Releasing an Android slab, full touchscreen BlackBerry device will fail, IMO. Wouldn't be any different than every other device currently on the market.

    I'm glad you kept an open mind and tried different devices to ensure your company stay productive and ahead of the game. The Passport is a phenomenal phone and combine with BB10 makes it the king of productivity.

    Problem i have with the passport (when compared to iphone) is the workarounds i need to get things done.

    With iphone, i can wirelessly print. With blackberry i need a third party app from amazon.

    In facebook app, i cant manage business pages and groups (when compared to what i can do from an iphone)

    My carrier doesn't make an app for blackberry

    The list goes on and on. I still love the passport but i find myself going back to the iphone for tasks that blackberry makes more complicated...

    Great to hear. I recently have gone to the Passport. I find the hub, and ability to use Blend extremely helpful. I realize that these are available on all BB10 devices, but I find dealing with 4 email accounts, just a pain when using outlook. I really cannot see how people and corporations can use anything but. I can get away from hauling my laptop around on business also. Nice device.
