BlackBerry Passport (redesigned version) and BlackBerry Classic will be launched on February 20 by AT&T

Last month, AT&T announced that it would release BlackBerry's Passport and Classic smartphones, without mentioning specific launch dates. Now, the second largest US mobile carrier revealed that both the Passport and Classic will be available to buy starting this Friday, February 20.

As previously reported, AT&T's BlackBerry Passport looks different: it's been redesigned with smooth curves, instead of the sharp corners of the original model. But it's the same device inside, packing a 4.5-inch display with 1440 x 1440 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera, 32 GB of internal memory, and a 3450 mAh battery. AT&T will offer the Passport for $199.99 on contract, $649.99 with no commitment, or starting at $0 down on AT&T Next plans.

The Classic will obviously be more affordable: $49.99 on contract, or $419.99 without agreement.
