Introducing BlackBerry’s Passport

blackberry-passport02Just when we thought BlackBerry was off the shelves, the firm amazed everyone by its recent launch of the BlackBerry® Passport, a touch screen and new QWERTY touch-enabled smartphone.

John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO at BlackBerry said, “The BlackBerry Passport was created to drive productivity and to break through the sea of rectangular-screen, all-touch devices.”

The BlackBerry Passport has Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 display and forged stainless steel for added strength, a large square screen for viewing and creating content, and a first touch-enabled keyboard with gestures that make typing, editing and navigating more efficient and accurate.

The firm says the BlackBerry Passport’s new QWERTY keyboard is almost four times more accurate than BlackBerry® 10 virtual keyboards – the error rate is on average 74% lower – so there are fewer typos to get in the way of what you’re trying to say.

The BlackBerry Passport along with Porsche Design P’9983 smartphone from BlackBerry®, are the first devices to launch on BlackBerry’s latest OS platform, BlackBerry® 10.3. They come preloaded with new productivity-enhancing features including BlackBerry® Blend and BlackBerry® Assistant, as well as the BlackBerry® World™ storefront and Amazon Appstore, offering access to the very best apps for work and play.

With BlackBerry Blend, users can sync info on their smartphone to their computer and tablet and as well get instant message notifications, read and respond to your work and personal email, BBM™ or text messages, and access your documents, calendar, contacts and media in real time on whatever device you are on.

Blend works across desktop operating systems, including Mac OS X 10.7 +, Windows® 7+ and Android™ tablets running Android 4.4+ via cellular, USB or Wi-Fi connections.
