    Okay, So i thought that i would maybe see 1-2 blackberrys a week on the bus, streets,etc. But lately ive been seeing at least 12-15 a week here in Montreal CA. Is this just me? Or am i going nuts?

    I did see a Passport last December I was visiting.

    But anecdotal data does not mean much.

    I see them regularly. I fly frequently for business and see lots of BB phones at the airport, on planes, etc. Since January, I must have seen around 15 to 20 Passport phones alone during my travels in Eastern Canada.

    Passports r such a niche. I wish, wish, wish BlackBerry would market them. Wishful thinking.

    Honestly, for the last two years I haven't seen more than 10-15 in Montreal/Laval area.

    Seen one Passport and a Classic last year while at L'cole du Barreau.

    Because it cost LOTS and LOTS of money... and Chen has seen no indication that a phone without an ecosystem will sell.

    Would sales increase... yes! They might sell 100% more Passports if they spend $50 - $100 million marketing them. Of course that would add $50 to $100 to the cost of every Passport sold.....

    Fly to and from Eastern Canada on Westjet/Air Canada a few times a year and I run into at least a handful of Passports/Classics/Q10s every time, either on the plane or in government offices. They're as rare as a dodo in other parts of the world but it's not that uncommon in corporate Canada.

    Was shocked to see them in electronics stores from time to time in Asia - never once seen in the wild there.

    They sent some reps to McGill campus during orientation 2013
    I went up to them and asked them about news and upcoming devices etc
    They tell me "we're only here to show them devices, nothing actually specific though"
    These guys were completely clueless and blown away when I showed them some of the newest functions (apk support from 10.2 when it first came out)

    I have seen a lot of Blackberries here in Montreal: Passports, Z30's, Classics, Bolds, Torches, etc. I have the Passport Stainless Steel Silver Edition, the Z30, and the Torch 2 (9810).

    Not sure about Montreal. But I travel the NYC Subway almost every day and I've yet to see a Passport or a Classic.

    Note: Canada's federal government issues BlackBerries, as well as many Canadian large businesses and organisations.
