    How many devs out there are already working on 10.3 ready apps, fitting the Passport screen size? What are you working on?

    My interpretation of that article and others like it was, yes your q10 apps will work on passport, but any developer worth it's salt should get back to their computers and update to 10.3 sdk and confirm your app works on a higher resolution screen along with the other features that comes with 10.3 sdk. So, who's been doing that?

    I believe developers are already on the 10.3 sdk and are probably done testing their apps. And I'm also sure they must have submitted new apps which will only come on board when 10.3 officially becomes official.

    I think that article leaves on with a bit of confusion. Beyond the square-ness of the screen, the Q10 has nothing in common with the Passport in terms of UI layout. In fact, the way Cascades behaves, the Passport will default to picking up the default assets (not the 720x720 Q10 assets). This means the Passport will likely pick up the assets developers put in for the Z10, which could look fine or could look all weird.

    That being said, I have been doing a fair amount of work myself to handle the Passport and 10.3 correctly. UI updates for 10.3 (in general) are actually a bit more involved than for the Passport (in specific) if you do anything with custom controls. The visual style of 10.3 differs dramatically.
