New set of BlackBerry Passport photos will give you goosebumps

0. phoneArena 25 Aug 2014, 22:17 posted on

If you were to ask many PhoneArena readers which new handset they are really looking forward to seeing in the second half of the year, you would get votes for the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6, and the 5.5 inch phablet version of the iPhone. You would also see hands raised for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and the Sony Xperia Z3. And the BlackBerry Passport would also grab a few votes...

I feel the same way, but I really can't judge haven't used BBOS. Love the phone and if it does run the google play store then it would be a buy for me. Unfortunately I know it won't

If I was Blackberry I would throw everything I have into this phone if it fails Blackberry fails.

HP and Dell adopt android, did you buy it?
Nokia listen to you and adopt android, did you buy it?
Save your breath, with the failure of these android adapter, BlackBerry wouldn't be stupid to do so. If I want to buy android, I'll make sure it's Asian brand

idk what HP and dell produced, but da Nokia device is pure crap w/o google services. we aint blind retards ya know, kthnx.

its like instead of trying to win some of their reputation back by producing a good device with a good OS (android), they did us a favor of producing a crapbrick with decimated android.

Definitely YES, billions would Nokia Android phone IF it is high end, and not like the lame X series.

But I agree with you. BlackBerry is BlackBerry that is used to have its own OS like Apple, nothing else.

my friend its not the old Blackberry OS .

its the new version BB10 it can do better in anything your preffered OS can do.

and it will beat any OS on the planet when it comes to security and productivity.

Try it then comment. dont be a hater without even knowing what you hate.

Why? , the BlackBerry 10 OS is the most stable OS I've ever used. I had an iphone 4S with the buggy IOS 7 and I switched to Galaxy note 2 after installing games and apps the phone started lagging and sometimes apps crash! And to add I had to restart the device every while. Then I switched to BB10 * iwas former BlackBerry user * I've the keyboard you can say, it's beautiful no lag what so ever. I've installed plenty of android apps and it goes smoothly. And with OS 10.3.1 is coming their will be major UI changes for more beautiful experience. Simply the BlackBerry 10 OS is for sure one of the best OS's now ;)

BB might had found their footing (should've bump the screen resolution higher tho).
This would be an excellent phone for corporations and their email system!.

It's already over 400ppi and I doubt the benefits of the increased screen resolution will outweigh the costs of it (battery life)

Text clarity really benefits from high PPI.

You can also do some more functional things in the UI because interface elements are clearer to the eye.

Bumped screen resolution? Which phone has a higher ppi...?

64. hossamaltarawneh (Posts: 36; Member since: 18 Oct 2013)


451 ppi isn't enough for clear reading? You can adjust the white balance in the setting with BlackBerry 10 os. From cool white to warm white.

This phone actually looks nice.

Too bad I'm enjoying my Moto X quite a lot.

Whats wrong with this phone? The one problem I see is that today's smartphones all have the same general shape. This spices things up.
