    So it appears that ATT is getting a uniquely designed model of the passport. From what I see it has rounded corners and a longer chin under the keyboard.

    I think I would prefer this design over our current offering, just seems like it would make it so much easier to hold and use.

    Ya I'm kinda bummed that this wasn't the original model that got released!

    The unfortunate thing is that I bet this won't get released on the shop blackberry website since ATT will most likely only want it for their customers.

    I think factory unlocked out weighs the rounded corners, for me.

    I agree with what Q10Bold said in a separate thread, doesn't look like it would be that much of a challenge to have that 4th row of keys added in while maintaining the 1:1 screen ratio.

    I just wonder what else AT&T changed on the #BlackberryPassport? I mean besides the usual AT&T bloatware. It will probably come with that special sim to use the pay system AT&T is pushing.

    Celebrate diversity in phone choices, not homogeneity.

    Personally, I like the original and glad I bought it vs. this AT&T version. Not to disparage anyone else's opinion of the design, but I prefer the original. I am glad to see AT&T finally carry it and glad to see variety for folks to choose from.

    My question is how did AT&T and BlackBerry kept the redesign under wrap.

    It's what AT&T wanted. Did BlackBerry have a choice?

    I like the Stainless Steel band but still love my Passport. Exclusive US club for us buying from other sources.

    Nice! It looks so much better with rounded corners! I'm sure it would feel better in the hands now.

    This just proves how much power the carriers still have over smaller players in the market. BlackBerry had to do this if they wanted their product in retail stores.

    I'm all for the rounded corners, I decided to send back my Passport, as the keyboard was wonky in the wind and the sharp corner just didn't feel right when trying to use the phone with one hand. I think I'm going to hold out for a high end all touch though, I'm definitely sold on BB 10 and hope everyone else can see the light.

    I read a few places on the forums here that the corners were going to be rounded. I forget who said that but they only posed it like twice and everyone was kinda skeptical because they had no evidence.

    It's amazing how this small change made it instantly more attractive.

    I need to see more pictures of the entire design, but square corners were my only negative point on the Passport design. Not a deal breaker, but something to mention.

    Probably didn't trust their customers with pointed corners...

    The rounded corners look more feminine than the original design.

    Glad I bought the unlocked version to use on AT&T. I am not diggin the rounded corners. YUCK!

    Aside from that I am sure AT&T will load up the boatware and I also wonder how many case makers are going to make different version just for this AT&T rounded corner model.
