Following a successful launch of the BlackBerry Passport in Black, the BlackBerry Passport is coming to the Middle East in white and is expected to be available in the BlackBerry store in The Dubai Mall and in all leading telecom retailers in the UAE from December 1.

Featuring a large square touch screen and new QWERTY touch-enabled keyboard, the BlackBerry Passport is a device purpose-built for productivity-driven business professionals who want a smartphone that empowers them with the mobile tools they need to get things done, without sacrificing style or portability. And now, the BlackBerry Passport will break through the sea in stylish white.

Inspired by an actual passport, the universal symbol of mobility, the size and form factor of BlackBerry Passport is portable enough to easily tuck into pockets and use wherever you go. Utilizing premium, robust materials such as Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for the display and forged stainless steel for added strength, BlackBerry Passport will provide the durability business professionals require in a smartphone.

The large square screen is optimized for viewing and creating content, and will make everyday tasks like reading and writing emails, reviewing and editing documents, web browsing, and map navigation, more comfortable and effortless. The BlackBerry Passport includes the industry’s first touch-enabled keyboard with gestures that make typing, editing and navigating more efficient and accurate. BlackBerry’s physical QWERTY keyboards have always made it easier for users to create polished, professional communications with exceptional accuracy.

The BlackBerry Passport is one of the first devices to launch on BlackBerry’s latest OS platform, BlackBerry 10.3. it comes preloaded with new productivity-enhancing features including BlackBerry Blend and BlackBerry Assistant, as well as the BlackBerry World storefront and Amazon Appstore, offering access to the very best apps for work and play.

The BlackBerry Passport in white will be available at AED 2699.
