BlackBerry Dallas to be named BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition

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.
- Display 4.5" 1440 x 1440 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3450 mAh(23h 3G talk time)
I'll take a Passport spec phone in a Z10 body.

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

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.
