It's here! The BlackBerry Passport is now official and we couldn't be more excited about it. Announced today at events being held in Toronto, London and Dubai, the BlackBerry Passport is the latest flagship device and with it BlackBerry continues to arm mobile professionals with tools that make them more productive.
"As we set out to design BlackBerry Passport, we were guided by a simple yet challenging idea – to set aside the limitations of traditional design and to instead simply build a device that fundamentally changes the way business professionals get work done on their smartphone," said John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO at BlackBerry. "The BlackBerry Passport was created to drive productivity and to break through the sea of rectangular-screen, all-touch devices."
Inspired by actual passports, the universal symbol of mobility, the size and form factor of BlackBerry Passport is portable enough to easily tuck into pockets. The BlackBerry Passport also includes the industry's first touch-enabled keyboard with gestures that make typing, editing and navigating more efficient and accurate. According to the press release, which you can read below, BlackBerry Passport's new QWERTY keyboard is almost four times more accurate than BlackBerry 10 virtual keyboards.
