BlackBerry Dallas to be named BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition

BlackBerry Dallas to be named BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
The phone that first caught our attention as the BlackBerry Oslo, and then the BlackBerry Dallas, will apparently be officially launched as the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition. A "confidential" slide that leaked from BlackBerry reveals the new name of the handset. The fact that the device will share the Passport name with the original model should not be a surprise since the phone shares the same specs as the original BlackBerry Passport.

Despite the leaked image, we still suggest taking this story with a grain of salt. If true, the Passport Silver Edition will feature a 4.5-inch display with a 1440 x 1440 resolution. The square screen, which allows you to "Work Wider," carries a pixel density of 453ppi. The Snapdragon 801 SoC drives the handset, which contains a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 330 GPU.

Yes Virginia, BlackBerry includes OIS on its 13MP rear camera. The front-facing snapper weighs in at 2MP. A generous 3450mAh battery keeps the Passport working all day, and then some. BlackBerry 10.3 is pre-installed. Considering that we've seen the Passport Silver Edition certified in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and by the FCC (as the BlackBerry Dallas), the phone could be introduced very soon.

If the sharp corners of the original Passport leave your concerned about holding it in your hands, the Passport Silver Edition appears to feature the rounded corners employed by the AT&T version of the manufacturer's flagship device. But that doesn't mean the model is definitely coming to the U.S. We should find out exactly where this phone is heading once it is unveiled. Unfortunately, we don't yet know when that will happen.

No you wouldn't. You'd only take a iPhone spec phone in an iPhone body.

Some people can't handle the truth.

Some people are too ignorant to see the truth because they have their head shoved so far up their rear.

So people can't handle the truth well at all. In fact, they even go out of their way to insult others when the truth is said about them. Such pitiful individuals they are.

Some people are just talking with their foot in their mouth and their head up their behind. They think they're above others and can't take the truth or are just too salty

Some people are secretly referring to themselves when they comment, but always try to deflect their persona onto others.

There's definitely the smell of bs in the air that's for sure.

Some lame people should take their own advice.

Princess are you going back to using No You responses? The commenting in third person while childish was at least something different. Even if it was pathetically unfunny.

What's even more childish is the fact that you joined in on what you call "childish". And if it was "pathetically unfunny", then why did you join in? Guess it's because your pathetic.

I didn't say I was completely innocent. Stop deflecting.

Yup. The Z10 is, still, one of the awesomly designed phones.

I know people think BlackBerry can't compete but if anyone tries the passport they won't switch to any other phone especially if you use it for work. I love it and the battery can't be beat. The new update is awesome as well!

10.3.2 is the current o.s version. Keyboard shortcuts such as app launching or emailing,texting,i.m's speed dialing, the ability navigate from one screen to another and zoom in/out without touching the screen are added features from the original o.s 10.3. Would imagine this will be released with BlackBerry 10.4. Hopefully android runtime is bumped up from 4.3 (current) to 5.0 with the option of google play services.
