Customer demand drove the BlackBerry Passport to the number one selling unlocked phone on Amazon.com within hours of launch, which our partner told us is unprecedented. As John Chen mentioned on our recent earnings call, there have been over 200,000 orders for BlackBerry Passport since launch. No small feat for an all-new form factor.
The compelling US$599 price for this unlocked phone attracted a lot of fans (Canadian consumers can also get the BlackBerry Passport for a limited time for just $200 at TELUS).
This segment-creating device is unlike other phones on the market, and is purposely designed this way. Productivity is at its core, with a massive 3450 mAh battery that provides up to 30 hrs of life. A large, square touchscreen with incredible clarity paired with an innovative touch-enabled keyboard are also on board for mobile professionals to complete work without having to turn to a laptop or other computer. Buyers get all of this, in a portable package the size of its namesake – the global symbol of mobility, after all.
