    Any eta on the USB 3.0 adapter for the Passport? I remember this was part of the Passport's slimport specs, so said BlackBerry. Are there any third party adapters?

    I don't think it's possible with micro USB port, Samsung tried USB 3.0 with more 3 but required different port. They are back to micro USB port 2.0 with note 4.

    because slimport is not standard micro USB port.

    That discussion is beginning to lack some focus and is all over the place with opinions from the start.

    Slim Port does support micro USB
    http://r.ebay.com/6OHltv
    ^ that is one such product.

    The thread in the post above claims otherwise even though the source linked stats it is compatible with same MicroUSB connector.

    BlackBerry stats a customer adaptor will be released, yet it's been a month since the Passport was released so it's a bit unnerving.

    BlackBerry - Accept no substitute. Period!

    Probably the typical blackberry response would fit in nicely here: "soon".

    So is BlackBerry the only manufacturer on the planet that claims USB 3.0 out of a traditional micro USB 2.0 shaped port (what is really a SlimPort).

    Is there any evidence that this is a real thing? Is SlimPort a USB 3 technology? Why aren't there already SlimPort to USB 3 adapters available? What about the Note 4? It has an MHL port, right? Did they really downgrade to USB 2 after having 3 in the S5?

    I am so confused by the various standards and would have preferred a standard micro-usb 3 port and separate micro HDMI port. Or just reliance on Miracast and an HDMI dongle.

    The new USB 3.1 port can't come soon enough.
