Report: BlackBerry Blend to officially debut with the BlackBerry Passport

0. phoneArena 01 Sep 2014, 02:47 posted on

The oft-leaked BlackBerry Blend has been leaked once more. This just might be the very last time that it is leaked, considering that the latest rumor reveals that the feature will debut with the launch of the BlackBerry Passport. This is not totally a surprise since back in May, we passed along a rumor that Blend would be unveiled on the BlackBerry Windermere. The latter was the code name for the device that subsequently was named the BlackBerry Passport...

Looks like a very nice addition to the Blackberry ecosystem. PC/Mac access and management of phone/device content is something that matters to a lot of customers.

Dammit, I thought it's a new upcoming device from BlackBerry. How I wish that they will unveil a full touch screen flagship along with the Passport.

With John Chen wanting to focus on PKB handsets at the moment, it's doubtful that will happen this year. The closest we will get to another all-touch BlackBerry is the BlackBerry Z3LTE, which is supposed to introduce slightly updated specs into the handset ala BlackBerry Z30, but at an extremely affordable price. Perhaps next year they will introduce an all-touch flagship.

BlackBerry Blend is reminiscent of BlackBerry Bridge, which allowed a similar connection between a BlackBerry handset and the BlackBerry PlayBook. It was a great feature, and I'm glad that they have expanded on it with BlackBerry Blend.

With BlackBerry introducing features like this into the BlackBerry ecosystem, they are are expanding their software and services capabilities, which is exactly what John Chen has said he wanted to do all along.

There has even been talk of introducing BlackBerry Blend for other platforms, the same way BBM has been introduced to other platforms. That would be great and further increase the capabilities of BlackBerry's software and services side.

Now it's not definitive the BlackBerry Blend won't work with the PlayBook. We have to verify that when logging into the blackberry blend website using the PlayBook browser doesn't work.

If Blackberry wants to succeed in the future they need to stop producing phone and software are move over to Android. The OS they use is lame, laggy and the app store is terrible.
