    I think most reviews follow the same pattern:
    - good keyboard
    - hard to use with one hand
    - strange form factor
    - good battery
    - good OS
    - bad ecosystem

    I loled because overall the article you see after every chapter: UPDATE!

    Lol. Every time he wants to CRUSH BlackBerry, he was mentioned at the comments that he is wrong. Double LULZ.

    But overall a good review. He took his time. And the comments are okay. In comparison to last year!

    A great and powerful comment about this review of Engadget!!!!

    After reading this review, I must admit I am quite disappointed at the quality of the review.

    Engadget's Brad Molen has clearly been doing this for a long time, has owned many phones, perhaps too many in recent times, and frankly it shows.

    I challenge the reader to recall the birth of the "rectangle" iteration of a smartphone.... that's right, mid 2007, upon the launch of Apple's first iPhone device. Those in the technology field will then recall an environment barren of any competition (there was "no phone like it") until the copycat designs from HTC and Google soon followed on the Android platform.Take nothing away from Apple's success - they re-innovated the smartphone in 2007. This, of course, after the first smartphone devices from Palm and RIM were deemed an innovation from the classic "candy bar" and "flip" style phones.

    Now, are we to conclude that, in order to be called a smartphone, a device needs to follow some sort of Apple blueprint? I did not realize that a phone dictatorship existed.

    As a review-specialist, Mr. Molen should be embracing advances and innovations in the tech sector - not discouraging them. Why is it so "odd", that in only 7 short years a manufacturer took a stab at innovation to the status-quo? I challenge you as a journalist to keep an open mind instead of getting lost in the establishment. I took the time to critique your review because the reality is Engadget is a big brand whose reviews will have an impact on the prospective buyer. It is a shame for the consumer to encounter discouragement at what is truly an innovative and productive device. Internet marketing is a powerful tool, so make it count for the better.

    As for Blackberry's Passport - I decided to purchase it, after taking into consideration the overwhelming number of positive consumer reviews (See: Editor vs. Consumer review ratings). A brief review: it is a very well-crafted and sturdy device, very versatile to other technologies, enabling productivity in demanding environments. A best-in-class ppi display, an award-winning operating system. I can honestly say I've never had a battery last me so long. After 1.5 weeks I have finger memory in using the keyboard; in fact, I wrote this critique on it.

    Some of the cons are BS, though. Probably Engadget or whoever is in charge wouldn't allow him to give it a higher score.

    I'm curious what you think "isheeps" are "anxious" about?

    If the Passport is the most successful phone blackberry ever releases, and I hope that it is, will that affect Apple in any way?

    I can't see how it will. Chen has explicitly said they're not competing with the major players anymore. They simply can't and survive.

    Nah, in three years, Apple will invent the wide screen. Mark my words or at least of its followers.

    He is basing this on the negative comments of iPhone owners on that article.

    You are factually correct -- the Passport will have absolutely no effect on Apple or iPhone users. This is what makes the intense anti-BlackBerry comments of iPhone users (on this and many other BlackBerry articles) seem like anxiousness. They don't have any reason at all to follow BlackBerry articles to bash the Passport and defend the iPhone... yet, there they are.

    It's either that, or it is some irrational hatred of BlackBerry - a company whose success or failure will have zero impact on any aspect of their lives.

    Enjoyed the read. He gave the phone a chance without jumping to conclusions. He even edited his mistakes after reading feedback in the comments. Good review by this gentleman.

    You're welcome, gentlemen.

    It has been a long time since Engadget made a decent to good review about BlackBerry. Even the comments were good.
