    Yay! Version 3 of a poor selling phone with the same specs as the first.... it will fly off the shelves. So many Z users waiting for an all touch will be finally persuaded to upgrade to this version of Passport even though the previous ones couldn't. Thank you Chairman Chen!

    I wonder if this is for TMo? Model# indicates Sprint but with no CDMA that's obviously not the case.

    I don't really get the whole different color/cosmetically different craze that some have. I see posts about regular vs AT&T Passport or ooo white Q or blue Classic or whatever. Who cares? If you're into color-coordinating your phone just slap a case on it.

    Unless this version is going to be considerably cheaper than a regular (original) Passport, what's the point of creating this variant?

    Can't imagine that it would, doesn't it have identical specs?

    Maybe it's BlackBerry's way of acknowledging the double type/screen lift/torque issues?

    Maybe BlackBerry has sold their second batch of devices and is currently more in a JiT production mode.
    What I mean is that BlackBerry orders very small batches where the phones aren't produced over longer periods of time.
    Like this, it would even make sense to have slightly altered designs.
    You'll need to retool the production machinery anyhow.

    I'll agree though, why make another Passport, if you are bleeding full touch users?
    Full touch/slider Android phones seem to answer that question....
    I sadly cannot think about another explanation. BlackBerry's product portfolio is so bad currently, that it's not even funny anymore.

    I can't help thinking that Blackberry's lack of hardware going forward, in particular all-touch devices, marks the end-game for long-standing Blackberry users. I'm really starting to think that it is OVER. Just B2B sales, based on security software, in the future. Nothing for loyal mobile customers. I hope that I've wrong but I suspect that things is the last Blackberry device the I shall ever purchase.

    John Chen doesn't understand hardware and the consumer market. Look at the devices designed under his reign. The Passport was already under development when he arrived. He is a software guy and is running the company as such.

    If they really are going the Android route wouldn't the Dallas/Oslo have been a logical device to release as an Android? Makes more sense than just another Passport, if Android really is in the plans.

    I hear the Dallas model may be a "slim fit" version of the BBP.
    For comparison it could resemble the size of the iphone 6

    I was unable to confirm dimensions,just heard it's a possibility
    'Dallas' may be slimmer than the current line of BBP. When I asked
    for a current phone comparison the individual said a little larger than
    the iphone 6 would be the closest resemblance.

    I heard that this model's existence is due entirely to some screwup at BlackBerry.

    Makes sense.

    John Chen was asking for his passport because he was going to take a trip to Dallas. Some guy in hardware overheard him and misunderstood. Lol

    In device thickness? Oh, well I guess that's a welcome change. I was hoping for a 4" screen.

    What if it includes a camera sensor upgrade with faster focus?

    But that would require BlackBerry to spend effort on this thing.
