    1. If I connect PB to a PC, can the PC also charge the PB battery?

    2. What is that white dot next to the front camera?

    3. What are functions of the 3 ports? I know the middle port is for PC cable and battery charge, but how about the left and the right?

    4. Also, what is the function of the hole on top? Headphone?

    1.- No
    2.- I really don't know what you're talking about, could be the LED
    3.- Micro HDMI and the other one is for the rapid charger.
    4.-. Yes

    Uhmmm......

    1- Yes No, you can however back-up it via BlackBerry Link
    2- Thats the iconic BlackBerry LED... used for notification purposes
    3- Left = mini HDMI, Middle = Micro USB, Right one is for Rapid Charging
    4- Uhmm yeah, what else ? 3.5mm Jack-in plug

    I don't want to be rude, but most things are kind of obvious aren't they ? :P

    1. NO, you cannot charge via USB port. USB is limited to 0.5A, this thing needs quite a bit of current to charge. Actually, I think you might technically be able to charge, but you won't get to 100% and it will take a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time. Better to just use a rapid charger or the BB usb charger. Even the charger that comes with the newer Blackberry phones won't be good at charging the PB.

    The pc will charge it, but it will take a looooong time, as noted above. Get a charging dock or the Rapid Travel charger (this one uses the 3 pins on the right with a magnetic connector) and save wear/tear on the data port.

    any charger that has an output of at least 1 amp (1000 m,illi-amps) will sufice to charge the PB (it comes with a 1.2 amp charger...)

    The original pb charger was 1.8 but when purchasing returns etc, I have seen the sellers include anything from .5 to 1.2
