    Please post any updates here, kind of ridiculous they announce the phone but don't announce availability through carriers.

    considering that when they announced the Z10 and Q10, we had a time frame for US release, to not hear anything about the US carriers, does not bode well for those of us in the States. it would be a major fail, if US carriers do not offer the phone, and probably drive a lot of people that still use blackberries to other operating systems.

    The BlackBerry Passport (unlocked) will be available through ShopBlackBerry.com for customers in Canada, France, Germany, the UK and the U.S. immediately following the launch, at the special introductory rates below.

    BlackBerry Passport Introductory Offer Price

    Canada $699
    France 649
    Germany 649
    UK 529
    USA $599
    The BlackBerry Passport (unlocked) will be available through Amazon.com as well. They will be announcing their pricing soon.

    Expected On-Contract Prices

    In addition, we expect our many carrier and distributor partners to offer BlackBerry Passport with a contract for around US$249, though the exact price will vary by partner. As an example, at TELUS in Canada:

    BlackBerry Passport price will be $250, but
    From September 24th until Oct 1st, as a limited time promotional offer, TELUS will be pricing the BlackBerry Passport at $200 on a Smartphone plan ($50 off). On Oct 1st, TELUS will resume the regular price of $250.
    Before the end of the year, the BlackBerry Passport will be available through our carrier and/or distributor partners in more than 30 countries around the world, including:

    U.S.
    UK
    Canada
    Saudi Arabia and the other parts of the Middle East
    France
    India
    Singapore
    Austria
    Germany
    Nigeria
    Hong Kong
    Indonesia
    Malaysia
    Netherlands
    South Africa
    Australia Vietnam
    Belgium
    Italy
    Switzerland
    Mexico
    Venezuela
    Philippines

    Available today on one carrier in one country... and nothing but rumors about when it will be available on any other carrier in any other country?

    What a FAIL!!!

    Chen... for as smart as you are supposed to be... you sure are clueless.
