New set of BlackBerry Passport photos will give you goosebumps

New set of BlackBerry Passport photos will give you goosebumps
If you were to ask many PhoneArena readers which new handset they are really looking forward to seeing in the second half of the year, you would get votes for the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6, and the 5.5 inch phablet version of the iPhone. You would also see hands raised for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and the Sony Xperia Z3. And the BlackBerry Passport would also grab a few votes.

If you're surprised to see a 'Berry on this list, keep in mind that the Passport is unlike any BlackBerry model ever released. With a 4.5 inch screen and a 1440 x 1440 resolution, we are talking about a screen that has a pixel density higher than the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5. BlackBerry made sure that this model would include 3GB of RAM for smooth multitasking. And apropos for the company whose CEO started calling iPhone users "wall-huggers," the 3450mAh battery on the BlackBerry Passport will keep those in the field concentrating on business, instead of worrying where they can find an outlet.

The 13MP rear camera features OIS. Why, it is almost like CEO John Chen asked consumers and businessmen what they wanted in a high-end BlackBerry handset, and actually listened. Past regimes were not interested in hearing from consumers. The BlackBerry Passport is all about making a handset that is perfect for the business man on the fly, and the average guy sending texts to his friends.
