Everyone likes choices. They give you a chance to show your personality and stand out from the crowd.
That’s probably part of the reason people are loving their BlackBerry Passports (check out our press/review roundups HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) – the unique form factor, packed chock-full of innovations, unlocks personal productivity in a way no plain-vanilla device can.
It says, “I mean business and get things done,” and says it with style.
Still, gold just looks chic, and the BlackBerry Passport is a thing of beauty – inside and out, whatever the color scheme.
Get It from Us and Skip the Expensive Electroplating
Those passionate fans bent on having a black and gold BlackBerry Passport have already gone the distance to trick out their devices. Actor/rapper Drake reportedly customized his smartphone to the tune of £1,999 (that equates to over US$3,000)!
Over on LinkedIn, super-fan Jim Opfer detailed how he went to a plating shop, which had to have the device taken apart (the horror!) so the frame could be custom-plated. He disassembled the device himself, and it took an entire nerve-wracking hour, with about 30 screws to take out. (We don’t recommend this.)
Now that’s what I call determination.
Others are looking to luxury customization company Goldgenie to do the work. It’ll set you back a cool £1,247.50, or US$2,020.
Ah, the things we do to make our tech shiny.
