    The other day the owner of a video surveillance company noticed I had a new device and said with amazement, "You finally ditched your BlackBerry. What device is that? I am looking for something else once my contract is due in the fall"...... So here I am in that situation.....do I bother.....do I show him.....so instead I ask. Why are you ditching your iphone...."Well we went to iphone because of the apps for surveillance, but overall I am not impressed. Apple is such a money grab. We couldn't use BlackBerry because, well you know they are all keyboard and a little screen. I am thinking Android because they have the same Apps as Apple. So what is that device?"......I show him the back of the z30......"WHAT"......"Thats a BlackBerry! ". Guess who asked for a serious tour? 20 minutes later he was so impressed he is looking into going BlackBerry come this fall. We will see.

    Exactly!

    Let people KNOW about the New BlackBerry. It's easy to get them hooked once they see and feel it.

    Well done.

    Every time I take my Z10 out of its case my coworkers ask me if I finally ditched my BlackBerry for a new phone.

    They really don't pay attention.

    That's why they're doing the Passport instead of a Z50. They want something that "looks like a BlackBerry" but looks obviously new and different, too.

    Can't blame them. When they look at a Z10 or a Z30 they have very few options to guess from.
    "Huh, all touch screen device? Must be apple. But where's the home button?"
    "Must be Android phone then." "Wait, how do I unlock this thing?" "Swipe to unlock?!" "That's just stupid" "Oh, it's a BlackBerry? No wonder it's dumb."

    Not saying all people will do this but the majority people do these kind of things.

    If I were to consider the most frequent response to my Z30, "that's a BlackBerry??" would probably be the one.

    Great story.

    While I love my q10 and cannot wait for the classic and passport. I understand the love for large full touch phones, so I support BlackBerry in continuing to release z line phones to draw in the "normal" smartphone user base that may not be into the niche qwerty phones.

    We need to be at a point where none of our cases and covers block the logo. Matter of fact they should make it more visible.

    I hope somebody comes up with a cover that has a light up logo like mac computers. I hope they make an on /off switch and with a small watch battery so it doesn't use ur phone's charge.

    One can only drean

    I agree. I picked my case for my Z30 in large part because of its logo and the word BlackBerry on the back.

    I have a similar story. Was in a product demo for CCTV cameras and the manufacturer said their remote viewing App only works on iPhone and Android and that BlackBerry won't be supported. I downloaded their App via SNAP on my Z10 and held up my phone and showed the 15 attendees that it will work on BlackBerry10 devices. The presenter didn't believe me and came over to see, it was running more fluid on my Z10 than on his Nexus 5, he took some notes and said "well I guess I'm going to have to change my PowerPoint now".
