The BlackBerry Windermere gets a new name and an official release date: meet the BlackBerry Passport
BlackBerry already released its financial report for the latest fiscal quarter and apart from the information that gave us insight about the company's current budgetary condition, another interesting piece of news got revealed. It seems that the heavily-rumored BlackBerry Q30 (also known as Windermere) will eventually see the light of day this September. This was unveiled by BlackBerry's CEO, John Chen, who confirmed that the high-end device will be unveiled at an event in London. However, its name won't be Windermere, like it was expected, but Passport instead.

The Passport will most probably come with a square-shaped display, which will be bigger than 4 inches and will sport a peculiar resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels. Should this turn out to be the case, the BlackBerry Passport will be rocking a pretty high pixel density, allegedly around 480 ppi. The upcoming BlackBerry device is also believed to pack 3GB of RAM, a 13MP back snapper, and a removable battery with the monstrous capacity of 3450mAh. The BlackBerry Passport will also come with a QWERTY keyboard, which is reportedly functioning like a trackpad.

So, could the Passport be one of the devices that will help John Chen turn BlackBerry into a profitable company? We will find out only after the BlackBerry Passport hits the shelves.
