BlackBerry Passport Redefines Productivity for Mobile Professionals with Boundary-Breaking Design and Features

BlackBerry is determined to deliver what it promised years ago when it first stepped into the mobile market and their strategy is still seen on all their newest developments. In order to arm mobile professionals with tools that make them more productive, BlackBerry Limited has launched the BlackBerry® Passport. The global leader in mobile communications announced the phone a couple of months earlier and since then BB fanatics had been waiting to get their hands on it.

The phone comes with a large square touch screen and new QWERTY touch-enabled keyboard and all in all it wont be wrong to say BlackBerry Passport is an exclusive device designed particularly for productivity-driven business professionals who want a smartphone that empowers them with the mobile tools they need to get things done. The best part? You can be all serious and work-related without sacrificing the design and style.

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

A design for professionals

The design somewhat takes its inspiration from an actual passport which represents mobility. This tells us a lot about the phone itself and rightly so because the size and form factor of BlackBerry Passport is portable enough to easily tuck into pockets and use wherever you go. The phone has been fashioned out of premium materials such as Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 for the display and forged stainless steel for added strength, and it all adds up to the durability of the phone.

Daily tasks get more comfortable thanks to the large screen which has been optimized for writing emails, reviewing and editing documents, web browsing, and map navigation. Welcome the first touch enabled keyboard of the industry which makes use of gestures that make typing, editing and navigating more efficient and accurate.

Connectivity with BlackBerry Blend

Connectivity is one of the major requirements of all customers and thanks to the Blend feature, the phone’s users can bring messaging and content that is on their BlackBerry smartphone to their computer and tablet. Every routinely task will be powered by Blackberry and what more can a professional ask for if they are getting a platform that allows them to 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. The BlackBerry Passport is introducing the feature of Blend and it 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.

Some of the major features of the BlackBerry Passport have been highlighted below;
