People stare at my phone while going in the tube. and so far in meetings and events, everyone asks
"Oh is that the new BlackBerry, can I check it?"
me : "Of course"
them: "Wow its big, how do you like it?"
Me: "Its the best phone today"

I can detail it in 3 situations till now after 2 days experience:

1. Comedy Situation: At the time of clearance from the post office, the custom officer was firstly shocked to see passport. Even more shocked when I told I won it for free. He was not able to hold the device properly. He was continuously staring at the device.Big_smile2

2. Tense Situation: My brother and I had dispute over who will take it. Ended at point when he said ok take it.Embarrased

3. Proud Situation: When I went to a local BlackBerry outlet to buy some accessories, probably each and every customer were staring at my passport. One asked me the name and asked for let him try. I was like no, but gave it for few seconds. And seriously never before got so much good importance from the shop guys before. Inspite of crowd at the store, I was attended by 2 shop guys.Cool

I think, this is just the starting. Many more interesting situations are waiting for me in the future.Cool

Hi Varun,

I glad to hear you received your Passport. I have been tracking it ever since I shipped it. Your mailing address is rather "unique". I hope you enjoy it's everything you expected it to be.

Robert.

He spent about 40 minutes trying everything on my Passport. Looking at the 3 app stores (yes I have Snap installed). He spent more than half the time opening Webpages. Played a bunch of YouTube vids. He went through every option in Settings figuring out what they do.

After all this he handed it back and said "I definitely want one of these. It puts my iPhone to shame." He went on to talk about how Apple takes a technology and finishes it before it goes in a device. Then it never really changes. BlackBerry is constantly improving and innovating. That means you may have some initial bugs in BlackBerry devices but the potential for a great feature or product is there. If you give it time, that potential will be realized and the customer gets a superior product.

So who is this man of intelligence, patience and insight? I'm proud to say he is my 19 year old son.

Indeed he is intelligent and insightful. That's a pretty thoughtful statement. Like father like son I guess.

My wife is the only one who has said she wouldn't be interested in it...mostly because it's too wide.
