Blackberry Passport

In the world of rectangular wide screen smartphones , a square phone might seem out of place and a bit odd considering that strange form factors died out years ago , but apparently Blackberry , a company who still holds on to traditional values like the QWERTY keyboard decided to bring  back a square smartphone that looks strange and ultra powerful at the same time . Say hello to the new Blackberry Passport , this is Blackberry's latest "flagship" smartphone as it is the most powerful blackberry in production to date , the phone , which has a rather odd 4.5" display has a resolution of 1440x1440 and it has a keyboard that is touch sensitive so you can use it along side the touch screen on the phone in a fashion similar to that of a trackpad . The rest of the phone is quite impressive as well and with 3GB of RAM , a Snapdragon 801 chip , the new Blackberry Passport is also "top of the range" .The phone supports "Android apps" that can emulate itself onto the odd display size , the new Blackberry OS 10.3 has a built in Blackberry assistant , which works with natural voice recognition . The phone will be sold mostly via retailers as a unlocked device , but customers on major carriers can expect the device to start off at $249 with TELUS Canada taking the initiative .
