The BlackBerry Passport is a very interesting phone and I can’t wait to try one out at the store. The touch sensitive keyboard is a cool feature. The Passport is now on sale for $599, it will come to AT&T. But you could still purchase the phone unlocked and use it on T-Mobile.
Thanks for posting the video. I like the BlackBerry Classic size. Essentially as wide as the Z30, and taller than the Q10 by exactly the space of the tool belt. I agree the Passport is the Flagship phone with all the right specs but I believe the Classic will probably appeal to a broader audience. They are two different phones that will each have their own following. I’m hoping they both sell well.
The BlackBerry Passport will go on sale for $599 on Wednesday in the U.S., looks like a decent piece of hardware, i think its funny that people hate on the form factor simply because they’ve never seen anything like it. that physical keyboard also includes some of the cool innovations of BB10′s excellent virtual keyboard. Finer control in selecting text using capacitive keyboard.
This phone will run all android apps available through the Amazon App Store, or sideload Snap to get even more apps. Just hope it’s available in the US on AT&T or Verizon right away. So I’m guessing contract pricing around $199?

Not a fan of the Porsche Design concept, but the new new BlackBerry P’9983 looks hot. This is way better looking than past Porsche designs. This is way better looking than past Porsche designs. Wish I could afford one!
I love the new BlackBerry Passport and the form factor. Shared by OurBerries, the latest images of the BlackBerry Passport give us our clearest look at the phone. We can see T-Mobile’s logo on the back of the handset.
The BlackBerry Classic is a sweet form factor. My hope is they use that frame and make an all touch Z10 replacement with updated specs. Looks nice. Especially the stereo speakers and overall design. Might have to but the Passport and Classic.
