I've played with a Passport at the Telus store, and I own a Z10, so here's my experience.

Then put the hub icon on your homescreen, and you have it: a unified inbox.
However.... anytime you do the swipe right gesture, it will just go to the last messaging service you had open (mail, text, bbm, etc). So just use the hub icon on the homescreen to go to email, the text icon to go to text, and so on, and think of the swipe gesture as quick access to whatever messenger you had open last.
The passport keyboard felt good to me in the store. The keys have good travel, and strangely, the weird space-key placement didn't seem to bother me, but I didn't use it a lot. I think the biggest challenge would be getting used to two thumb typing on such a big keyboard. There's a lot of reaching to do.
