BlackBerry CEO John Chen shows off the BlackBerry Passport and the BlackBerry Classic
The most exciting part of the phone is right under the screen, where the odd looking QWERTY keyboard lies. The keyboard lacks punctuation and number keys, and users will press down on the keys to type and swipe over them for other functions. The BlackBerry Passport will launch this September.
Another BlackBerry phone that could see strong demand this year, is the BlackBerry Classic, formerly known as the BlackBerry Q20. With a Bold-esque QWERTY keyboard, the Classic will have a touchpad and function keys like the good old days. The device features a 3.5 inch screen.
BlackBerry CEO John Chen displayed both phones on Thursday during a conference related to BlackBerry's latest earnings report. If you've been dying to eyeball the BlackBerry Passport or the BlackBerry Classic, take a look at the slideshow below.
