Wow everyone getting a phone... My Lumia is giving me a few problems so I have to replace it.

I just ordered an Alcatel Idol 4s with Windows 10. It's on sale but still a lot of money. I will see if it's worth it...

The passport seems pretty awesome. Post some pictures ??

stingraze, I have seem a slideout keyboard for iPhone 5. You might want to consider one. Let me grab a link...


I'll post a few pics this weekend.

That Alcatel comes in a few variations: the Alcatel Android version; the BlackBerry DTEK60 Android version; and now a Windows 10 version. I wonder if it supports continuum?

That's very nice!

I recently bought a iPhone 5s for future app development use a couple days ago after watching Ghost in the Shell (lol).
I just had this sudden urge to buy one. haha. It was about $156.00 USD.

Apple A7 CPU & Space Gray color.

The screen is a little narrow as I use a 5 inch XPERIA Z5 usually. I think it will take some time getting used to.
I'm using the iPhone 5s without SIM. (only WiFi)


I like the look of the 5/5s/SE. My wife has the SE and it's a very nice phone. If I was Rich, I'd say something like, "it keeps her occupied." lol. Actually, if I was Rich, I'd say something worse!

Mobi,
Yes the idol supports continuum. But it doesn't come with a dock, nor does Alcatel make one. So you would have to get a dock from other makes such as Microsoft

lol.

Here's 2 pictures of my iPhone 5s. I "modded" it with a aluminum bumper.
I didn't know until today that SE was the same form factor as 5s.

Here's the pics! They're a little grainy. My photography skills, the Q10 camera, and the image quality reduction for the forum combine to produce some truly awful shots

I have a QWERTY keyboard coming from Aliexpress. The deal was too good to pass up, even with the QWERTZ keyboard. In the meantime, the keys are remapped in the software, so the Z types a Y and the Y a Z.

Re-using the form factor on the iPhone SE means that all the cases are interchangeable too, Stingraze.

I was looking on reddit: Alternative (and cheaper) continuum dock options?

Apparently something like this would work well. After all the trouble with USB-C cables, third-party solutions kind of worry me though.

Very nice looking Passport!

Yeah, I noticed that iPhone SE cases are interchangeable with 5/5s the other day.

Thanks Mobi... I am aware there are much cheaper alternatives to Microsoft's continuum dock for Lumia - I'll do some research and see if I can just get a cheap one from local stores

Posting on this thread again because I got a Blackberry Passport Black today in Akihabara. It was 22,800 JPY including tax.

I really love this device, but I need some getting used to, especially how the touchscreen UI works and all. I am planning to put some Android apps on it.

Very cool looking phone, stingraze. Obviously, the physical keyboard is its sexiest part. Are you using the Sharp IS01 for comparison? I always admired that machine.
