BlackBerry Passport (redesigned!) and Classic launching soon on AT&T
While the BlackBerry Passport has been available to buy (unlocked) since last year, it’s only now that a US carrier is revealing plans to offer it. AT&T today announced that it would exclusively offer a redesigned BlackBerry Passport - though it doesn’t yet have a launch date to give us. The carrier says that more details will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

What’s that part about “redesigned”? Well, the original Passport is a bit too sharp around the corners, but the AT&T variant has smooth curves that certainly give it a distinct look. Design aside, the refreshed BlackBerry Passport isn’t different from the original model, thus featuring a 4.5-inch display with 1440 x 1440 pixels, 13 MP rear camera, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable storage space.

AT&T will sell the Passport for $199.99 on contract, or $649.99 with no annual commitment. Additionally, you’ll be able to get the handset for $0 down on AT&T’s Next plans (starting at $21.67 per month).

Besides launching the Passport, AT&T will also offer the BlackBerry Classic sometime soon. Naturally, this will be cheaper than the Passport, costing $49.99 on contract, or $419.99 with no annual commitment.
