The BlackBerry Passport has been officially revealed

We knew the BlackBerry passport was coming, in fact we knew almost everything about it thanks to the tireless work of the online rumour mill. Now after many long months, we finally get to see the device officially shown off to the world by BlackBerry itself.

The phone comes with a 4.5-inch 1440 x 1440 square display made from Gorilla Glass with 453 ppi pixel density, a full QWERTY keyboard, and a 30 hour battery life. The phone will also come with BB 10.3, the latest BlackBerry operating system, a 13.5MP camera, a Snapdragon 801 processor, the BlackBerry virtual assistant, micro SD expansion, and access to all 250,000 apps on the Android app store.

The issue is that it’s going to cost £529, £10 shy of the cheapest iPhone 6. Can’t see the Passport and it’s weird shape catching on at a price that high. That being said, like the last lot of BlackBerry phones, it may well go drop in price in a few months time.

The phone goes on sale today, so if you really must get your hands on one this second you can buy it here.
