Watch the BlackBerry Passport get torn down with screwdrivers and a tweezer
If you ever need to take apart your BlackBerry Passport, the video embedded below might be a big help. It looks like a set of screwdrivers will get the job done. Oh yes, a pair of tweezers is needed to help you pull components out of the new business-oriented handset. The 3400mAh battery seems to take up most of the inside of the device.

We know what you're thinking. Doesn't BlackBerry say that there is a 3450mAh juicer on the device? As it turns out, pre-production models of BlackBerry's new flagship smartphone had a 3400mAh cell. Does that mean that whomever owns this model can put it on eBay and get a bid of $60,000? Uh, no.

You might have noticed that this was not the same type of extensive teardown that you might see from iFixit. But it does give you an idea what the inside of the phone looks like. And if you want to see a luxurious look of what the outside looks like, on Monday we passed along pictures of the drool-worthy phone in Gold.

"Does this mean that whomever owns this model can get a put it on eBay and get a bid of $60,000? Uh, no". This sentence and others in this article continues to show Phonearena's (Alan F specifically) trolling of BlackBerry. The lack of objective journalism is appalling, Smh.... This comment will no doubt get modified or deleted.

what I get from that sentence is the fact that apple fanboys and icollectioners are far more stupid than other fanboys. while both are stupid, iFans take that trophy home easily.

One: Do not concern yourself with the "thickness of my skin". Two: What does skin thickness have anything to do with the fact that even Phonearena trolls BlackBerry along with the users that troll BlackBerry and lacks journalistic integrity?

The reason for 50 mah difference is that its difficult to put the same capacity in every battery when manufactured and are built to fall within a standard of deviation it isn't just Blackberry, Motorola had it too and I'm sure if many other phones were torn down in huge numbers we might see some phones have a slight deviation from the capacity the specs indicate
