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...

GOOD LOOKING PHONE

It's not the real thing, unfortunately. The future phone will have a square screen and a much wider body... Let's hope it wouldn't look like the horrible so-called "Windermere" leaks we have seen the last months....

Looking forward to more big screen phones from BB. This while it is not for me, should satisfy some nicely. Keep the fight going BB!

Im so getting this device. I like the size and specs. Plus with android apps coming from amazon to bb. This will be a hit I can see it now.

with that square-ish resolution?? good luck on using the apps on amazon ecosystem. some of the apps will not run perfectly on this phone. you better get the real mccoy... the real android handset, rather than some phone that trying to immitate/copy/steal android name.

And how do you know the apps won't work on this device? Have you tried it before? Let me answer that for YOU: NO. You haven't tried ANY BB10 device before, so you cannot speak from a position of knowledge about them, only ignorance. And Amazon's ecosystem is one of the BEST in the business. Again, you have NO IDEA what you're talking about.

Dude! Again, don't be harsh on yourself, and call yourself nobody. Even if you are a hater I for still consider you somebody.

Apiskula, you're just mad that BlackBerry had a great quarter, and is not dying like you want them to. This handset will sell. You need to quit it with your hate. It is clearly not getting you anywhere. Oh! I have that silverware for you so you can EAT YOUR WORDS! Remember? I hope you're HUNGRY....

I would prefer a 16:9 screen ratio for watching video. But I will at least look at it if an AT&T LTE model is available.

HOW IS IT THAT YOU HAVE A JOB WITH PHONE ARENA AND YOU ARE POSTING A PICTURE THAT IS NOT THE BLACKBERRY PASSPORT. THATS NOT THE PHONE. THATS A FAN CONCEPT RENDER.

"Because...Because...Because..." Lmao! What? You had trouble thinking up one of your lies? You must not be able to read, because BlackBerry posted a better quarter than the last! The stock is up! The shorts have retreated! John Chen has silenced so many haters! And instead of you just admitting it, you ramble on with your lies. I feel sorry for you.

BB is a commando like john rambo down but never out. i cant wait till they knock some socks over of microsoft and make them eat their own p000p mixed with elop peeeeeniz its going to be a great karma session for microsoft who played a great game in destroying a great company and stealing all the patents. cant wait till b----itch fanboyz going to cry a river when purview only snaps pictures of BB ejaaaaaaculating all over th face of micro--dik and flop.

commando like john rambo?? in your dream pall... in your dream..... bb is like a leper who were crawling for their last moment. and we just hope it stop crawling. it hurts seeing bb suffering and no body cares about them. even their fan just giving moral support but not buying the phone anymore.

You really do believe the lies you speak! That's so sad! How is no one buying BlackBerry devices when BB10 devices sold more than they did last quarter? And note: I said BB10, NOT BBOS7. The BlackBerry community is and always will support BlackBerry. It's so sad that you just can't realize this...Smh...

Judging by the number of favorable comments maybe it should be.

The CEO of blackberry just officially released the phone blackberry passport and classic (Source crackberry.com), the passport looks almost similar to the pic.

"They will not save company..." Um, what? Have you even READ their latest quarterly report released today?? BlackBerry is well on its way to being profitable again, so the company IS saved. Where have you been the last 13 hours? Under a rock?

BlackBerry's losses are only down 1% compared to last quarter. Still up to spreading your lies, I see.
