BlackBerry Passport flash sale runs for 48-hours, takes 34% off the price
The BlackBerry Passport is the subject of a 48-hour flash sale by BlackBerry. Unlike the flash sales held overseas by companies like Xiaomi, this is merely a sale that is running for 48-hours on the handset. The phone is receiving a 34% discount and is priced at $229. That is $120 off the regular price of $349. The last time BlackBerry ran a 48-hour flash sale for the Passport, buyers purchased the Silver Edition in such great numbers that the BlackBerry web site sold out of the device completely; the Passport Silver Edition is no longer available at all from the manufacturer.
The unlocked BlackBerry Passport is a GSM model which means that this version of the phone will not work with Verizon, Sprint or U.S. Cellular. The phone comes with a 4.5-inch LCD display featuring a 1440 x 1440 resolution. The Snapdragon 801 SoC is under the hood containing a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU, and the Adreno 330 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage (which works out to 25GB of native storage for users).
A 13MP snapper with OIS is on back. For those who shoot selfies, there is a 2MP front-facing camera that also handles video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3450mAh battery. BlackBerry 10.3 is pre-installed. The Passport sports one of the most unique BlackBerry keyboards since it works in conjunction with the display in order to type numbers and punctuation. The QWERTY keyboard also doubles as a touch-pad.
