0. phoneArena 20 Jun 2014, 00:45 posted on

Eagerly awaited BlackBerry phones might sound like an oxymoron, but there are two top-shelf models coming from the manufacturer that have smartphone fans excited. The newly named BlackBerry Passport (formerly the BlackBerry Windermere) could be the flagship phone that turns things around for the company. Expected to hit the market with a 4+ inch screen and a 1440 x 1440 resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU is believed to be under the hood...

I am sure that most geeks will pay much attention to those. Because it is BB's "passport" to perdition.

I feel sorry for all of you haters and trolls. BlackBerry posts a good quarter and you guys STILL have something negative to say. You all really need to find something better to do with your time.

I would advise them to get laid but I would feel bad for the partner. Someone needs to take one for the team I guess.

He seems like he's losing some hair, probably the stress from the company he's running.

Beautiful. BB will not gain more than 15% marketshare anymore, but they are still needed in enterprises. Recently my uncle's workplace with 530 execs. including him got new Z10s and Q10s.

Wahooyahoo,
He was right... you have commented SO MUCH in the last hour or so on VARIOUS Blackberry articles. You really do comment A LOT for someone who hates Blackberry so much. All you've been doing is repeating yourself over and over and over again. It's getting old. It's very tiring. It's very annoying. And your broken English is very hard to read. Please stop already.

btw... i just want to fix the stats...
bb will not gain more than 15%???
with bb phone sales down each quarter. I think it would be more suitable to say that bb will not gain more than 0.5% marketshare anymore after 2015.

Spoiler: His Z10 is awesome. The BB10 OS is innovative and the keyboard is among the best, next to swype and swiftkey.

See there's nothing wrong with ESL or poor english. But if you dont know how to argue in decent English, then stop that hating and trolling BB everytime.

I can see why he got Z10s, they are dirt cheap(200 euros unlocked lol), a massive retailer from where i'm from is still selling S3s at a higher price than Z10s(240 unlocked), i asked why the price difference and they said because they barely sold any Z10 and the S3 is a good seller.

In my company, the IT guys wouldn't even think of spec-ing BB, 'cause they would be fired for just suggesting BBs. The CEO would have nothing to do with a BB, and won't make their employees have to suffer with a BB either.

Hey! WahooWaheho! I was wondering when you would come trolling around! So, as I said BlackBerry posted a good quarter. Doesn't seem like they will be going out of business any time soon! Are you ready to EAT YOUR WORDS like we agreed upon?

Yes, you DO hate BlackBerry. You troll every BlackBerry article that PA puts up and always have something negative to say, usually a boat load of lies. I want BlackBerry also. And apparently, so do millions of others. And how is BlackBerry going to bankrupt when they ended the quarter with MORE MONEY in the bank than last quarter, Wahahee? Either your math is really bad, or you just like to keep spewing lies. I'd say both.
