    Alain, I agree with you that the Passport it's a flagship, but still - it's 150 bucks. I'd pay the price for this item if it was for a Porsche design phone...

    That has to be an error. Anyone paying $150 for a leather holster is insane. And if they are actually charging that much that's laughable.

    Forget all the t**d polishing, as they say in the brokerage business, it's simply a ripoff.

    DR (Digital River) told me yesterday that this is a question to Blackberry about the pricing as it is implied that Blackberry has set the price. Here is the email message I received. If you follow the link it basically tells you to twitter or facebook your questions. I did to @blackberryhelp on twitter.

    Dear Customer,

    Thank you for contacting the BlackBerry online store.

    We understand that you are inquiring about the price offered.
    Unfortunately, we are unable to assist you with this product inquiry at
    the online store. For detailed product information please contact
    BlackBerry for assistance at:

    Sincerely,
    Aireene D.

    Customer Service



    As I told @blackberryhelp that the pricing is 3 times the price of any holster in history...what / how can that be. We all should ping them one way or the other.

    I've never seen Apple charge anything close to that for one of their cases. Even their leather iPad cases are much less expensive. This is just ridiculous pricing on BB's part.

    The price is very high for the convenience of an OEM holster. If I was to holster my Passport I'd order from tuff as nuts (nutshell) in New Zealand. I have four of their cases with the a 3-way belt loop. The belt loop allows for the case to fit closer to the body, and the quality of leather "wears in" over time. Ian, the owner, is a "hands on" businessman with excellent customer service.

    I hope they rise up to 250 bucks. Why not going to champions prices? Hell, make it a 500 bucks! Just like that! Why not?

    I still question whether or not it's a mistake but no one seems to have an answer and it has been like that for as long as it has been listed on the site so...... ya. Good luck selling any, even if it is a mistake and it does get corrected, most people won't go back and see if the price was ever adjusted.

    I called DR last week, and they said it was a bug that had not been reported prior to my call, and that they would fix it today.
    Im going to call them again. Ill update with results!

    Hope you're right, since everyone else seems to be reporting that the insane price is actually correct.

    I think they need to be strongly reminded that there is now plenty of reasonably-priced competition in the holster market (from Seidio, et al), and any lack of OEM holster sales will be due to pricing and not a lack of demand.

    I have been waiting for a holster for the passport. It's been my only draw back on the device. Now my issue is solved. Passport is now recommended by me as the greatest device on the market bar none.

    The Passport is a premium product. It deserves this type of holster considering it's design shape and massive size. I will buy it if available at BlackBerry stores Dubai mall.

    Did you get some kind of response from DR that would lead you to say that? I also called and I was assured that the advertised price was correct, admittedly high said the rep, but correct.

    It may deserve this type of holster but the holster doesn't deserve that type of price.

    Still at $150...Everyone must be on vacation that has the authority to do something. I suppose I am one of those crazy folks that checks daily. My emails and tweets seem to have been flushed.

    Lol...I have to agree. They are trying to take a page out of the Apple Pricing Bible. Unfortunately that model will not work with BlackBerry users.
