BlackBerry Passport announced at last
Much has been said about it, and here we are with the official announcement of the BlackBerry Passport, and to have this literally square smartphone announced is definitely worth checking out. After all, when was the last time a smartphone that carried the BlackBerry name actually managed to pique a fair amount of interest? I am quite sure that many people are looking forward to the BlackBerry Passport, wondering whether this particular handset will be able to rejuvenate the brand name, or will it prove to be another nail in the proverbial coffin of the smartphone company.
The BlackBerry Passport will boast of a generously sized square touch screen display, where it is accompanied by a spanking new QWERTY touch-enabled keyboard, making this a device that has been purpose-built for productivity-driven business professionals who want a smartphone which will empower them with the mobile tools that they require in order to get things done, all without having to sacrifice on style or portability.
The BlackBerry Passport is portable enough to easily tuck into pockets and use wherever you go, where it will make use of premium, robust materials such as Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for the display, while a forged stainless steel is thrown into the mix for added strength – one thing’s for sure, it does not look as though you will be able to bend the BlackBerry Passport permanently when it is placed in your pocket, unlike numerous reported cases of the iPhone 6 Plus to date.
The large square screen has been specially optimized for viewing and creating content, where you will be able to perform everyday productivity tasks such as reading and writing emails, reviewing and editing documents, web browsing, and map navigation, in a far more comfortable and effortless manner. After all, the 4.5” square display at 1440 x 1440 pixel (453 dpi) resolution is something special, where it will run on BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3 which will feature new capabilities such as BlackBerry Assistant, BlackBerry Blend and Amazon Appstore. Apart from that, there will be a 3,450mAh battery that helps keep the BlackBerry Passport going throughout the day. Pricing details have yet to be determined as at press time.
