BlackBerry Passport Hands-ON


The BlackBerry Passport is an oddly shaped smartphone for todays’ smartphone. Blackberry ditched the now traditional 16:19 aspect ratio for a 1:1 aspect ration device; which means you have got a smartphone with a 4.5 inch square display. The Passport isn’t lacking in specs, carrying a 4.5 inch display with a resolution of 1440X1440 ( which looks awesome), running a Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB or ram and a 13MP rear shooter ( records at 1080p). The Passport doesn’t support removable battery but does have expandable storage of via MicroSD.

At first thought I wasn’t a fan of the design of the passport. But I have to admit once I got it in my hand, BlackBerry has crafted and oddly comfortable device that brings some in features with the old trusty QWERTY keyboard back. ¬†Which has the quick type feature as well as the ability to use as a track pad. You really have to see both on camera. I must admit, when I first heard of this device, I said what the heck. But now that I have held it first hand, I would like to spend more time to see what BlackBerry has created with the Passport.
