    And now they've got an offer that they will give cash for people to switch from the iPhone to the Passport.
    This should be quite amusing. I can't imagine trading in my iPhone for the Quasimodo.

    If it were a Z50 with amazing specs, maybe. Passport? Nope. I really don't like the style of that device at all.

    Actually I wouldn't do it at all.

    I still go back to having to run a device with minimal native apps. Or going to Android. And I'm not going Android on a Blackberry with no dev support. Besides, most of them don't work, Amazon hasn't got my banking apps, and the experience is atrocious compared to either Blackberry native or Android where it belongs, on Android.

    Nope.

    It's funny because BB fanboys and gals will fight to the end. I've used most devices out there. I don't care to the point of fighting over a brand. I use what works for me at the time. I don't own the company I just use the products.

    While I think the overall BlackBerry experience can be better, I think it goes to show how a single mistake can cascade and create major woe for a company.

    Still, outside the Runtime, I'm cautiously hopeful with regards to BBRY's current track, and the PassPort intrigues me.

    IMHO, it's all about the ecosystem, and this is where Apple has done one heck of a job creating a linked experience.

    Yup and there ecosystems sucks. I have no idea why they and everyone else thinks android is the answer for the BB. I for one hope they make a come back. The more devices put there the netter they all get with competition.

    The only reason I would get a blackberry is for work where I prefer a physical keyboard. Other then that no reason to get one since in essence it's android on top of blackberry os

    Honestly I want Windows to come up and make more of a splash. A 3rd ecosystem is good for business. Windows looks good but with little app support the 2 major options are android and ios imo

    I had the Icon and loved it. It's a shame because it seems like they also don't care about the apps. Not that I'm complaint but their apps come out on iOS before Windows phone.

    I agree with you so much. I want a midrange or low end on Verizon to test it out, to see if I can live with it. But they have the discontinued Icon, the M8, and the Ativ SE and all of them aren't worth spending $500+ for.

    I just can't see myself spending $100s of dollars for an OS like Windows Phone.

    Yeah I actually was interested in the icon when I got Verizon a month ago but it was discontinued. I have a xbox one so having xbox and a windows phone is intriguing concept. The other ones I don't like or don't want a s4 rehash.


    Hopefully I can find a $100 or cheaper with LTE on Verizon because I would love to try one out and change between my note 4 and that.

    I have to deal with that on android for a few apps so I don't mind the delay but the void of basic apps from Google and not 3rd party devs is disappointing. It's like which came first the chicken or the egg thing going on with Windows phone Tbh.

    That is what I am talking about, the 822 is $94 shipped off contract last time I checked. The Ativ Odyssey is around $80 off contract on Amazon.

    Believe it or not, every last app I rely upon is on my Lumia 1520. What are missing are peripheral apps that I don't necessarily rely upon, but which are nice to have.

    And they don't sell the lumia 822 directly from Amazon and I tend to avoid 3 party sellers on Amazon

    See the issue with me I tend to avoid 3rd party sellers on Amazon , avoid 3 party devs on android since I find them inferior then say the dedicated Google YouTube app. I typically avoid anything not made by the actual developer lol .

    It is third party but it is $80. I'm curious why do you avoid third party sellers? I use mostly third party for majority of my orders.
