question

You said "with its built-in battery and limited keyboard"

I have two questions, 1- witch phones nowadays it's not on the trend of non-removable batteries? What flagship smartphone nowadays have removable battery?

2-"limited keyboard"? For real? Tell me about other phone where the keyboard it's a touch pad at the same time?

I know it's not a iPhone that's why it has flaw's, we already know that.

Balance

With the keyboard being soo low how does it feel in your hands? Did they make it bottom heavy or does it feel like it's going to leap out of your hands?

Let Blackberry Die Already

For effs sake, there's no reason to buy this. No 'pro' is going to want to get anywhere near the terrible BB10 OS, nobody wants this awkward keyboard, and nobody wants to sell, support, or develop for these giant piles of crap.

Blackberry could have just stopped making phones and brought back its brand equity a few years down the road, but instead they're tarnishing the legacy churning out round after round of total crap.

Stop it.

Looks like another miss by BB

I'm not saying I want BlackBerry to fail but this form factor seems like a miss. I understand to step out and innovate but this device doesn't seem 1 hand user friendly. Very odd looking design concept. Good try BB!

Honestly

The device looks great. I love how the screen fits all those large widgets. But the form factor isn't for me. I just can't do a square screen. Give me a 16:9 1080p screen. That's what my monitor at home is and that's what my TV is. That's what I like looking at. I have square monitors at work and they drive me nuts. They're only tolerable because there are three of them.

With that being said, this looks like a really solid device from BlackBerry with great specs. I'm sure the keyboard will surpass any on a mobile device, and that's something I really miss having on my phone is a physical keyboard. Give me a Note 3 (or 4) with a slide out keyboard and I'm sold.

reading the critics here

The Passport is not made for the consumer. It's made for business people that want to get things done.

Wider screen for easier document reading (think spreadsheets).

Keyboard is touch-enabled and lets users brush their fingers over the keys to scroll through information on the screen (you don't actually press the keys)

The camera, battery life, and onboard memory are on par with the Note 3. Only instead of tall and needing to turn sideways, you just keep going as normal.

No bloatware either!!!! Shocked

Between BB World and Amazon's App Store, you can find what apps you need. If you have an Amazon account, you can access Prime Music as well.

As the BGR article on it said months ago, "it's not for iSheep and Fandroids to play ...

Verizon

So if BlackBerry WANTS to sell this device directly to Verizon customers, Evil Red should have no problem allowing it to be sold to them. I haven't forgotten Verizon's empty promises of Any Device Initiative. One of the terms of the 700 megahertz spectrum Verizon won in auction was that they would allow any device which passed their security requirements on their network. We know Blackberries are secure if nothing else. This Passport is certainly not attractive. It remains to be seen if anyone actually wants one.

Sounds utterly horrible...I would expect nothing less from Blackberry at this point.
