    Passport and Classic in UK

    Hi, went to my local Carphone Warehouse store in UK, to ask about Blackberry Passport and Classic would they be stocking them?,
    was informed that they had a rep from Blackberry U K with pictures and details and there would be a demo passport in store and
    some in stock, price and exact date when they arrive in September not disclosed,
    it's a large store and always has Z10 / Z30 demo phones to try, and Q10 / Q5 /9720 /curves can be available at times,
    if you go in and ask for a Blackberry phone they are very helpful and accept your choice, no pressure to go I Phone / Android,
    there are many large enterprise companies in the area and they still use Blackberry phones so i see mainly Bold / Curve in use,
    so i may see Passport and Classic being used in the near future?, looking forward try one when in store and if it meets my needs
    will buy one, and then the Classic when it arrives, it's been a quiet time since the excitement of the launch of Z10 in January 2013
    and Q10 /Q5 and Z30 during the year, and with Blackberry facing an uncertain future in the latter half of 2013,
    now under a new CEO and with the launch of three new devices this year and going for the enterprise sector there is a good chance
    that Blackberry will be around for many years to come,

    That was Chen's focus. Business sector. As long as they can start turning a significant profit, BlackBerry can comeback as a big marketshare player again.

    Sounds awesome! I'm seriously excited about this device, hoping that functionality (in this format / form-factor) will overcome whimsy and I'll be able to stick with BlackBerry full time as my only device!!

    so am i, as soon as it arrives will try Demo in store, only need a few minutes use to decide to buy one,
    can it replace my Bold 9900 ? if not there is the Classic, always up to try some thing different and
    Passport is certainly that.

    Hi, update to original post, went to the retailer Carphone Warehouse to ask if Passport demo had arrived and any in stock, was informed that no passport demo will be in store
    and none will be stocked, it will only be available to special order, and the Blackberry display has been removed and no Blackberry phones in stock or will be, and staff attitude is Blackberry are not worth bothering with they only trouble, so a complete turn around by the company supporting Blackberry, in such a short time after they had supported them at BB10 launch also means no Classic either, as for UK carriers Vodafone are supposed to have the Passport, good for contract customers, i will wait until any faults/problems have been sorted and price drops then may buy from Amazon.
