Earlier this week, Blackberry announced a new flagship device dubbed as Blackberry Passport. It’s been almost a year since the Canadian company announced a flagship device.
According to Blackberry CEO John Chen, the company has received 200,000 orders of the newly announced Blackberry Passport.
The handset went on sale in the US via the company’s website for $599 for the unlocked version of the handset. Chen revealed the handset sold out on the company’s website in six hours, while Amazon also ran out of stock in 10 hours for the Blackberry Passport. Before it ran out of stock on Amazon, it was listed as the top unlocked smartphone on the e-tailer’s website.
AT&T has also confirmed that it will sell the Blackberry Passport in the coming weeks, but didn’t reveal any pricing plans for the handset.
The weird-looking Blackberry Passport comes with a 4.5-inch display with an unusual 1440 by 1440 pixels resolution, with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot should you ever need more storage. Other features include a 13MP camera for photos and videos, 2MP front-facing camera, 3,450 mAh battery and runs Blackbery OS 10.3.
