The unlocked version of the Blackberry Passport is available for $599 in the US, and is also expected to launch on AT&T in the US in the coming days.
If you’re based in Canada, and thinking about getting your hands on the Blackberry Passport, Best Buy and Future Shop Canada is selling it for $199.99. However, there’s a catch, it’s tied to TELUS so you have to sign up a two-year contract with the carrier.
You can reserve your unit online from either retailer, and pick it up from their brick and mortar stores in your region. But, you have to act fast if you want to avail this price as both retailers listed the offer is valid until October 30th.
Blackberry Passport comes with a 4.5-inch touch-enabled display with a resolution of 1440 by 1440 pixels as well as a QWERTY keyboard. There’s a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.26GHz with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, coupled with a microSD card slot.
On the rear, there’s a 13MP camera for photos with 1080p video recording capabilities, as well as a 2MP front-facing camera. To make sure there’s enough juice, there’s a massive 3,450 mAh battery and runs Blackberry OS 10.3 pre-installed.
The handset is expected to launch exclusively in the US on AT&T, but there’s no word about its pricing. We’ll update you as soon as AT&T announced the availability date.
