New set of BlackBerry Passport photos will give you goosebumps

If you're surprised to see a 'Berry on this list, keep in mind that the Passport is unlike any BlackBerry model ever released. With a 4.5 inch screen and a 1440 x 1440 resolution, we are talking about a screen that has a pixel density higher than the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5. BlackBerry made sure that this model would include 3GB of RAM for smooth multitasking. And apropos for the company whose CEO started calling iPhone users "wall-huggers," the 3450mAh battery on the BlackBerry Passport will keep those in the field concentrating on business, instead of worrying where they can find an outlet.
The 13MP rear camera features OIS. Why, it is almost like CEO John Chen asked consumers and businessmen what they wanted in a high-end BlackBerry handset, and actually listened. Past regimes were not interested in hearing from consumers. The BlackBerry Passport is all about making a handset that is perfect for the business man on the fly, and the average guy sending texts to his friends.

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.

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)

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.
