    Finally the wait is over. iPhone quota met.

    • Trev

      This was exactly my first thought as well.

    The more carriers the better (even when they are late as hell).
    But I can’t get used to a rounded Passport… Just wrong.

  • jrohland

    The ads are pretty good. To bad the store droids won’t even know thier company sells these phones.

    That’s the first time I’ve seen someone market the instant actions in the hub which are a huge productivity tool in my mind. Nice ad.

      In the mean time I’m still out looking for a unicorn.

    I honestly don’t see the big issue that some of u have with the look of the att passport. I understand the frustration regarding wait but that’s it.

    I reckon some of you wouldn’t be acting the same way had bb done this without att as an upgrade path with new specs for the passport

    • Poita316

      It, for me, has nothing to do with waiting. I’m not from the US and have had my Passport since it came out. It just doesn’t have the same impact as the square one did and to me feels like a knock off made by a cheap Chinese brand.

    I suppose ATT averted a lawsuit and finally made good on their exclusive deal with BlackBerry. So now is this an exclusive web only offer or does anyone expect to see any displays within their retail stores? This seems cruel, misleading the masses to believe the iPhone is the cats meow.

    As if the power that be at AT&T is selling the Passport to children are afraid the square would poke someone eyes out. Im just glad no one on this side of the pond demand a rounded corners.
