Piers Morgan stars in new ad for the BlackBerry Passport
In the ad, Morgan talks about the Passport's screen as being big enough for him to "craft a column." He actually is talking about the wide screen on the device, which measures 4.5-inches and carries a 1440 x 1440 resolution. Morgan discusses his ability to get an instant response from those reading something he's just pounded out, and calls that "powerful writing." He adds that "the whole world is coming to me through my Passport." The journalist says he considers the Passport to be his office, specifically pointing out the BlackBerry Hub feature.
Some of you might be surprised to see BlackBerry continue to push the Passport in light of the recent launch of the Android flavored BlackBerry Priv. But as the 60-second ad reminds us, there always will be a market for the phone from those who rely on the wide display, and the outstanding physical QWERTY keyboard. Journalists, writers and businessmen in the field are good examples of those who might benefit from having the BlackBerry Passport in their hands.
