Yesterday BlackBerry took the wraps off its latest smartphone - the Passport Silver Edition. While it's really little more than a new color variant for this model, the company launched it like it's an entirely new device. The silver hue and metal frame do look nice, but on the inside the specs are identical to those of the black Passport.
Anyway, if you're a fan of the new Silver Edition, you probably know that it's already available to buy in the US. But what if you're in the UK and desperately crave one of these?
Well, all you can do for now is pre-order one. That will ensure you'll be among the first people to own the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition when it is released in the UK sometime in late August.
Online retailer Clove already has the phone up for pre-order for £399, so you can go ahead and secure one for yourself over there.
The Passport comes with a 4.5-inch 1,440x1,440 square touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with OIS and LED flash, a 2 MP front-facing unit, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC with 2.26 GHz quad-core Krait CPU aided by 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a 3,450 mAh battery. It runs BlackBerry OS 10.3.2.
Just sold my passport, change it with Lumix CM1. No regret.... But, Damn.... I miss my passport
The only problem with the original was the balance and edges and this looks to have addressed that which is great. Naysayers be damned - I love my Passport...
