BlackBerry Passport appears on video; watch the QWERTY double as a trackpad

0. phoneArena 19 Jul 2014, 12:15 posted on

Thanks to its unique look and ambitious QWERTY keyboard, the BlackBerry Passport is one of the most intriguing handsets that has yet to be announced. With a 4.5 inch screen, and resolution of 1440 x 1440, the Passport presents a boxy look, with a very high pixel density. The phone offers 3GB of RAM and is powered by a 3450mAh battery...

That's actually quite clever. And the phone doesn't look as wacky as I'd thought. Quite smart TBH

Agreed, it is going to be an especially great feature to go back and change things when you're typing. I have a jailbreak feature that works similarly on my iPhone (using the software keyboard instead of a hardware one, obviously) and it makes my life a lot easier, and correcting texts a lot quicker. Really great added feature for the hardware keyboard.

I think the phone looks really good to be honest, I'm sure the build quality is good as well.

Device from dying company with not ergonomic design, small 4.5 inches display and poorly supported Operating System. Thanks but no, I don't want it!

Keeping away fake reports and statistics, the simplest way to prove that BlackBerry is not popular and that there is no big interest in new BlackBerry Passport phone is to go through many different tech sites and look how much comments has articles about BlackBerry and how much comments has articles about other manufacturers. After that it should be clear that BlackBerry is no more popular and that there is no big interest in new BlackBerry Passport phone.

Talking about QWERTY keyboard popularity, there still is people who prefers physical Qwerty keyboards but such people is now MINORITY. The best proof for that is the fact that phones with physical QWERTY keyboard is almost gone in our days, almost no one manufactures them, there is no phones with latest specifications and physical QWERTY keyboard. Why? Because there is NO DEMAND! That's why in evolution phones with physical QWERTY keyboard was push out from the market by fully touch screen phones.

Here you go with your lies again.

"BlackBerry’s square-screened phone to free us from our ‘rectangular world,’” went the headline of Andrew Cunningham’s piece in Ars Technica, one of many pieces that propelled the Passport near the top of industry news aggregator, TechMeme

The Passport’s boundary-breaking design and oversized 1,440×1,440 screen resonated with many writers. “One of the obvious reasons for BlackBerry Passport’s square form factor is the need for innovation,” wrote Softpedia’s Cosmin Vasile. “In a market where design matters a lot, BlackBerry found out that there weren’t too many square handsets available and has decided to go for it.”

TechCrunch’s Darrell Etheringon agreed. “BlackBerry is at least taking a different approach to the smartphone/tablet/whatever-mobile-computer, the design of all which has been largely normalized over the past few years.”

So did Jon Fingas of influential gadget blog, Engadget. “They’re interesting ideas, and the unusual form factor might just work for BlackBerry’s suit-and-tie audience.

Even BGR’s Brad Reed was moved to write that “the BlackBerry Passport wasn’t designed for iS***p and Fandroids who want to play Candy Crush all day — it’s for people who want to do real work, and that means having a physical keyboard that can fire off emails like no other phone.”

Predictably, some publications took a cautious approach to the Passport’s innovations, opting to defend a status quo dominated by an endless conveyor belt of entertainment-driven, homogenous devices.

But when everything tastes like chicken, maybe it’s time for a different flavor.

Clamoring Consumers

Besides the media coverage, the number of reader comments indicated the strong interest. BGR’s post drew 170+ comments; the Ars post drew more than 240 comments, while Engadget’s blog drew nearly 380 comments. Let’s not forget the 120+ comments at our blog as well as the combined 800 comments at CrackBerry!

These comments tended towards the passionate and insightful.

“As a matter of fact the touch-sensitive physical keyboard is certainly far more inventive than anything Apple or the Android camp so far managed to pull up when it comes to text entry,” commented one reader of The Register’s piece."

Excerpts from ACTUAL websites and ACTUAL consumers. No need for lies here, unlike you. You can find more at:

http://blogs.blackberry.com/2014/07/blackberry-passport-previews-ignite-consumer-interest/

Yes, it's BlackBerry's own blog, but quotes are from ACTUAL sites and consumers. You really can't stand the fact that there is genuine interest in this handset. Poor you. ;)

This is honestly really cool and innovation in my opinion but the thing is that if it ran android, it would sell. Even though you can get android apps on it (I think from what I read) general consumer aren't smart enough for that neither informed about new blackberry.

You call anyone that disagrees with you a troll.

If I say that the proportions make the phone look very hard to use single handed, I'm a troll that should shut up because most Android is that way.

If I say that though it looks interesting, it won't sell due to the fact that 1.) It's Blackberry and 2.) It still is missing the apps; I'm a troll because I don't know it can run Android Apps. Yet I do know it can run Android apps, but not all of them, and not all of them well. This is a fact.

The problem is, while the phones look nice, Blackberry seems to have an identity crisis of what they want to be. They claimed "prosumers" at first (professional consumers) then shifted gears to developing nations with the Z3 and upcoming Passport; but at the prices they are they seriously do not compete with the Moto G, Lumia 600s, or even the Desire 610.

This is something the Blackberry needs to figure out and making a phone with gimmicks (yes gimmicks) won't change that. This is not innovation, as it's not moving anything forwards or adding anything to the cellphone world. These are differentiating factors, but nothing that's earth shattering.

A few points:

"Yet I do know it can run Android apps, but not all of them, and not all of them well. This is a fact."

Your statement is true but incredibly misleading. No, it can't run all apps and some have performance issues. But an awful lot of apps, in fact the overwhelming majority can run, and run great.

"They claimed "prosumers" at first (professional consumers) then shifted gears to developing nations with the Z3..."

What precisely about the Z3 flies in the face of Blackberry wanting to target the Enterprise/Prosumer market? It's a great market to hit in developing countries that still want Blackberry security, but at a lower price point.

" but at the prices they are they seriously do not compete with the Moto G, Lumia 600s, or even the Desire 610."

How so? They are priced similarly and the Z3 compares quite favourably to all 3 devices you've mentioned.

"This is not innovation, as it's not moving anything forwards or adding anything to the cellphone world."

Define the difference between innovation and gimmick then. To me, something that improves the quality of a device, or makes an attempt to create a new method of doing something is an innovation. A touch/gesture based physical keyboard is, to me, an innovation. Something like a fingerprint scanner or heart rate monitor, is not.

1.) Once you get outside of the Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc... apps the deficiencies becomes very apparent. This is extremely true for any application that is demanding, especially games.

2.) No it does not. The price of a Blackberry Z3 is about $250; while the Moto G can be had for $180, Moto E for $120, Desire 610 is $200, and Lumia ~$100. With the Blackberry Z3 the buyer is literally paying more for less; less support, less applications, and in the case of the Moto and Lumia a worse camera (jury is still out on the Desire).

Also the Z3 is not aimed at the Prosumer...as Blackberry is not established in the enterprise industry of the developing nations. In fact, a lot of this goes to Microsoft due to the significant cost server maintenance which Microsoft can easily assist with due to cross licensing between Microsoft Applications and Sever Assistance.

4.) All of those are gimmicks. You are taking a subjective stance of innovation which it is not. If we are going to say that it improves the quality of the device, then I feel the Samsung is innovation because TouchWiz improves the quality of Android (again this is subjective but one could argue this). This is far from the case because TouchWiz is just a bunch of gimmicks slapped on top of Android.

Innovation would be the curved lens that Sony just created that allows for improved and smaller cameras in phones. This is huge as it changes the industry; a keyboard adding something that may or may not be useful, that is not innovation.

"Once you get outside of the Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc... apps the deficiencies becomes very apparent. This is extremely true for any application that is demanding, especially games."

1) Have you ever used a BlackBerry 10 device before? If you had, then you would know that BB10 plays games very well on their devices. And again, running Android apps SECURELY is only a plus for BlackBerry, no matter how you slice it.
"No it does not. The price of a Blackberry Z3 is about $250; while the Moto G can be had for $180, Moto E for $120, Desire 610 is $200, and Lumia ~$100. With the Blackberry Z3 the buyer is literally paying more for less; less support, less applications, and in the case of the Moto and Lumia a worse camera (jury is still out on the Desire)."

2) The BlackBerry Z3 is competitively priced for the markets it's in. One could argue that the slightly higher price tag is due to better build quality. How are you paying more for less when you can literally have 3 or more app stores on your Z3? I have 3 app stores, all running fine, on my BB10 devices. And BlackBerry support is GREAT! And I'm sorry, but low end Lumias and Motorola phones have sub par cameras at best. I own a Lumia 521 and the camera flat out SUCKS. So did the camera on my midrange Lumia 810. True, the Z3 is aimed at the consumer, but so what? Did Apple, a CONSUMER COMPANY, not just make a deal with IBM so Apple can better compete in ENTERPRISE? Hypocrisy, much?

"All of those are gimmicks. You are taking a subjective stance of innovation which it is not. If we are going to say that it improves the quality of the device, then I feel the Samsung is innovation because TouchWiz improves the quality of Android (again this is subjective but one could argue this). This is far from the case because TouchWiz is just a bunch of gimmicks slapped on top of Android."

3) You are also taking a subjective stance when it comes to innovation. Is your saying that the keyboard on the Passport is not innovative any LESS SUBJECTIVE? What you say is a "gimmick", others look at as innovation. Respect others opinion.

You saying that the keyboard on the Passport is not innovative is wrong. How could a PHYSICAL KEYBOARD, that ALSO FUNCTIONS as a CAPACITIVE TOUCHSCREEN KEYBOARD, therefore enabling BlackBerry to implement its "flick" gestures on it not be innovative? AND it functions as a MOUSE as well? AND it adds needed punctuation and symbols on-screen when necessary? That is INNOVATION, any way you slice it.

That's right. In developing nation, BB is not associated with enterprise industry. In developong nation, BB is associated with CHEAP and FREE SMS (actually free messaging service / BBM). This is what bb addict, meanestgenius can't understand.

First:

In DEVELOPING NATIONS, ALL mobile phones are CHEAP and offer something for FREE. How else do you expect to sell phones in places where the average consumer doesn't have the money to purchase an expensive phone? The inexpensive(cheap)Androids and low end WP's are ALL SOLD IN DEVELOPING NATIONS. Thats why Apple finds it hard to compete there. They won't lower their prices enough.

Second: What YOU don't understand is that you're a TROLL. You come on PA simply to bash ANYTHING that's not Android or iOS. You do the same thing on WP articles.

Try again, loser.

BB will always will be having a problem running an android apps. Don't be surprise if you were happy with some apps, or games, then suddenly, the apps is not work at all after upgrade. The problem with bb and android aps were, bb were always playing catching up with android. and since it's not OFFICIALLY supported by Google/Android, it will have a sh!ty compatibility.

Rydsmith, I call anyone a TROLL that TROLLS articles on any website. If you don't know what a TROLL is, look it up and then get back to me.

BlackBerry 10 can run 98% of all Android apps. Only the ones with Google services tied in are exempt. Yes, BlackBerry 10 is missing apps natively, but the ability to run Android apps makes up for that. This phone will sell because of its innovations. There is high consumer and media interest in this phone. Have a look:

http://blogs.blackberry.com/2014/07/blackberry-passport-previews-ignite-consumer-interest/

BlackBerry does not have an identity crisis. They are primarily focused on enterprise and regulated industries..."prosumers". That has always been BlackBerry's bread and butter. BlackBerry also supporting those consumers that wish to purchase and use a BlackBerry device is not an "identity crisis". It's BlackBerry supporting its user base. Is there something wrong with that? Your statement also implies that Google, Microsoft and Apple must also have "identity crises" then, as they are CONSUMER companies pushing hard into enterprise.

You saying the Passport is gimmicky also implies that any innovation is a gimmick. I guess Samsung's heart rate monitor is a gimmick, Apple's fingerprint scanner is a gimmick, and Microsoft's Lumia with a 41 meg. camera is a gimmick.

No one claimed anything about the Passport was "earth shattering". Where did you get that ASSumption from? But it is an innovation nonetheless, and that along with its design is a differentiating factor from the "me too", "tastes like chicken" sea of devices that currently saturate the market.

And a TROLL is someone that logs into a specific article, offers nothing of substance and CONSTANTLY bashes said products. When you have over 600 posts all bashing BlackBerry, even on articles about Android or WP for iOS that have NOTHING TO DO WITH BLACKBERRY, then you're TROLLING. I trust you can see the difference.

I do not disagree with BlackBerry being able to run Android apps, but the question is whether it runs them well and that is an area where they need improvement. Yes 10.2 has dramatically improved this but not enough.

Also, if I'm going to just be running android apps on my phone, why not just buy an Android phone? With Samsung pretty much handing Knox to Google (which has been certified to be effective enough that even the DOJ and the Pentagon have approved devices running them) one of the competencies of BlackBerry has been threatened.

Lastly, yes the heart rate monitor and the fingerprint scanner and camera are all gimmicks. They are differentiating factors between the phones, but add little to the overall product.

And no Google, Apple, and Microsoft do not have an identity crisis as BlackBerry. BlackBerry has burned through cash reserves trying to maintain or establish their niche (also know as a narrow differentiation strategy). The other three have what is know as a wide differentiation strategy where they offer a wealth of products within the technology sphere. They know what they want and how to get there.

Out of those Microsoft would be the one that I would say is having issues as notes with Windows 8.

"I do not disagree with BlackBerry being able to run Android apps, but the question is whether it runs them well and that is an area where they need improvement. Yes 10.2 has dramatically improved this but not enough."

That's why there are UPDATES, my friend. EVEN ANDROID doesn't run ANDROID apps all that well all of the time. ESPECIALLY on low end hardware.

"Also, if I'm going to just be running android apps on my phone, why not just buy an Android phone? With Samsung pretty much handing Knox to Google (which has been certified to be effective enough that even the DOJ and the Pentagon have approved devices running them) one of the competencies of BlackBerry has been threatened."

One would purchase a BlackBerry for the better OS experience. I've owned a PLETHORA of Android devices and I find that BB10 runs much better, ESPECIALLY on lesser hardware. Can you imagine how much BETTER it will be on updated hardware? Also, Knox is a JOKE. NO ONE offers an end to end solution in enterprise and security like BlackBerry does. NO ONE. Google involved or not. BlackBerry is not threatened at all.


"And no Google, Apple, and Microsoft do not have an identity crisis as BlackBerry. BlackBerry has burned through cash reserves trying to maintain or establish their niche (also know as a narrow differentiation strategy). The other three have what is know as a wide differentiation strategy where they offer a wealth of products within the technology sphere. They know what they want and how to get there."

True, BlackBerry has burned through cash as PRIOR management has made tremendous errors. However, as of this past quarters ER, BlackBerry actually GREW CASH. They have 3.1 billion in cash reserves and NO DEBT. And with John Chen in charge, BlackBerry CLEARLY knows where to go and how to get there as well, as evident with the forthcoming BES 12, the leveraging of QNX in the healthcare sector and automotive, Project Ion, the monetization of BBM(stickers and channels is just the beginning), etc.

Bb10 and BlackBerry imo seemed to be happy with just being a niche player now, I think worldwide thwy have less than windows phone which says it all. I've got nothing against BlackBerry or anything, I think people should use whatever they like but if you looking at bb objectively, to think bb will reach the market share they once had any time soon is very very unlikely. Sure blackberry may become or be popular in non consumer areas but in terms of just the mobile market where they are behind windows already they will remain a small player. The passport is a niche products, you ain't going to see many iPhone or galaxy users in millions drop there phone for this.

You say if you look at BlackBerry objectively. Are you? Or are you just falling in line with the rest? Honest question here.

BlackBerry's main focus is enterprise. That's where this device will have the bulk of its sales. John Chen is not really interested in focusing BlackBerry to be a consumer company. Can you blame him? Enterprise is BlackBerry's bread and butter. Better they focus there, where they have more sales than anyone else. They own 62% of the enterprise market. Wouldn't you focus there also?

They only need to be a niche player in the consumer market. What's wrong with that? The Passport will sell in its intended market: Enterprise.

I think thats exactly what I said that bb are happy to be a niche player in the consumer market and thwy most likely will remain that for the near future. Your right they are more focused on enterprise but that's not really out of choice but that's whats helping them right now so why not focus there. When bb were popular with mass consumers they concentrated a lot there too but now not anymore they have changed there effort manly on enterprise.

Yep very true, they were very strong without the consumer market, I think they got into the consumer market accidently and as you said they lost focus. Chen seems to be going back to the root of their success which is good and I think they plan to be the back end service for phones in the future. Wouldn't be surprised if they offer backend services that a secure for android etc. Hey I get nothing from being biased towards any company, they could give a toss about us so am not going to waste my time defending a company or a phone unless there's a legit reason. I don't get why some people including the tech sites want to see Bb burn or disappear.

taz89,

I don't know where you live, but here, in Indonesia, BB is NOT associated with enterprise. BB is associated with CHEAP MESSAGING SYSTEM (BBM). Most bb sold in Indonesia (more than 50%) is black market imported, second hand, from other country. Priced around US$ 50 - 90. From store that sold brand new bb, the one most sold is around US$150. Not the top end. The reason is, because this people want to use BBM to CHAT FREELY (Cheaply) with their fellow family.

So, it's NOT enterprise. In Indonesia and other developing nation such as south africa. The driving force for BB is CHEAP internet plan for BBM. and meanestgenius is a bb adict who can't accept this. He keep forcing other to think that BB still successfull in enterprise. I don't know in other place such as USA or canada. Maybe in USA bb still use in enterprise. But I know in Indonesia and south africe, two place that BB said that BB is dominant, BB is FAILED in enterprise.

Wahy,

You're putting you're own spin on the truth, as usual. BlackBerry is associated with ENTERPRISE worldwide, including in Indonesia. ALL devices sold to consumers in Indonesia and South Africa are sold relatively inexpensive. Not just BlackBerry's. Android devices, WP, etc. are all relatively inexpensive, or "cheap". For you you to say that it's just BlackBerry is a falsehood. I don't know what your obsession is over BlackBerry, but it's bordering on madness now. EVERY BlackBerry article that PA puts up, you have something negative to say about BlackBerry. Almost 700 posts, all NEGATIVE about BlackBerry. That is very indicative of an obsession over BlackBerry.

And for the record, BlackBerry has a HUGE presence in South Africa. Their market share their is virtually unchallenged. I've posted links to this effect before. Please stop seeding PA with misinformation. It's getting pathetic now.

Anyone can track my history of posts and see that I ONLY insult once I've been insulted or called out of name or attacked. You seem to be the one that goes out of your way to log into a BlackBerry article and comment negatively at every chance you get. If you don't like it, why waste your time even commenting or reading the article? Move on let those that enjoy BlackBerry do just that. You and the other trolls seem to have a real stick up your @$$*$ with anyone that likes BlackBerry.

Please, learn the meaning of troll. Also, I sincerely hope that one day you guys will realize that spreading your hate here on BB articles isn't going to change the minds of anyone reading these BB articles, so really, what's the point of spreading your propaganda?

The more I see the Passport, the more interested I become. It's shot past both the iPhone 6 and the Note 4 in terms of my desire to try one out.

Brilliant. Hope Blackberry has patented ever bit of it and not let Apple, Samsung and buddys create copys.

The problem is, it won't sale. The bb user right now is the CHEAP user. All the professional already run away to others platform, and this CHEAP BB PASSPORT won't bring it back, especially with the price. BB is knowing to put the wrong price on it's device. Look at Z10, BB need to cut into 60% off, so it can sell. This will also happened to this passport. Until 1 year latter, and 60% off.

First: I don't know what a "Bkackberry" is to be on its bandwagon. If you were attempting to spell "BlackBerry", then perhaps you should use spell check. It helps.

Second: You really think I'm going to take the opinion of a hater like you? Spew your BS to someone that gives a crap about what you have to say. I DON'T.
