There might be lots of booing over here because it's a BlackBerry. But I do have the phone (Black) and it's the best phone I've had so far. Quick and responsive, still a powerhouse. As for those who already have a Passport I don't think they will want to swap, cause it's all the same inside. For those of you who are looking for a new phone this one looks super nice.

Apparently it's not yet available on Amazon and even on BlackBerry official store. For £382.99 it's a bargain. And MobilePhonesDirect.co.uk priced it the cheapest of all available colours, which is a bonus.

Additional £2.52 TopCashback available.

Oh it's not as bad as I thought. Just -16

I just love Blackberry, I've had the Q5 and now Q10, great 4g performance and the keyboard is great. Would love the Passport but will wait until it comes down to the £250 mark. BB10 Operating system is streets ahead, great stability and usability, shame people don't try it before running it down! If you have multiple work and home email addresses Blackberry Hub collectively brings them all together, superb bit of kit..

£373 on … £373 on amazonhttp://www.amazon.co.uk/Blackberry-Passport-4-5-Inch-SIM-Free-Smartphone/dp/B00NSRC4Y2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438949284&sr=8-1&keywords=blackberry+passport



​Not the silver edition with improved ergonomics, speakers and build quality.

Hot for the Silver Edition... From a UK seller. It's supposed to be retailing at £429.99 but most sites have it at £399.99 at the moment.

Need this in my life, gave my OG Blackberry Passport to my dad and switched to the LG G4, big mistake.

Heat from me, you can get it for £350 delivered from the Canadian Crackberry website at the minute with $130CAD worth of accessories - docking station and two cases but you'll get hit by tax on top of that so around £410 in total... May be worth it though as I have the feeling accessories for this, cases etc will be scarce and the official ones will hold their value. That's what I've done anyway, idiot to most people I know but I'm just not a fan of Androids messaging capabilities or multitasking compared to BB10 and BB10 has access to all the apps I need.

/stops rambling.

Blackberry and 3 should get together and produce a phone with "benefits" in mind.

Except I don't want Android in it.

Fair enough but I had a q10 and the app selection for blackberry was poor, and most android apps *i* needed wouldn't work properly...

​me either. Blackberry 10 is far superior. Optional access to Google services would be nice but not Android as an OS.

​this was true on earlier versions of blackberrys android runtime but since 10.3.1 things have been a lot better. When I had the z30 on 10.2.x it was awful, crashing left right and centre, now most apps run flawlessly with little to no effort, just download the apk from the play store using this: apps.evozi.com/apk…er/ and install it. With A bit of effort you can get your Google play account working on blackberry now but I've not tried this as all the apps I need are either on the Amazon store, available via the link I just posted or on the Blackberry app store. You should give them another go.

Yes, those sorts of benefits.
What i was thinking was, income related purchasing power. Blackberry passport is £350 which equates to one weeks salary for someone on 20k.
Perhaps if blackberry could think of those who get £3,600p.a.and produce a phone for that market tied to 3 payg it might help a lot of people and both business' too.
There are perhaps 6million people living on low incomes in the uk and globally? Seems to me they are missing a market, only concentrating on low to middle income earners. We see chinese grey products can be cheap and good.(?)
why can't uk/canadian business do it is the question i ask?
Am i talking too much?
