BlackBerry Passport is here, and it’s going to shake things up.
This is truly a power-packed device, with built-in access to TONS of apps.
You might already know that BlackBerry Passport delivers:
A huge, square touchscreen for an amazing viewing and reading experience
A touch-enabled keyboard
Up to 30 hours’ battery life between charges
And a ton more
But one of the things we’re most excited about is the fact that it opens up the massive Android app ecosystem in a way you’ve never seen before.
BlackBerry Passport comes with access to two of the world’s most dynamic app stores built right in.
Both BlackBerry World and the Amazon Appstore come preloaded on the Passport as standalone stores. (Already have a BlackBerry 10 device such as the Z10, Z30, Q5 or Q10? Great news: an upcoming BlackBerry 10.3.1 OS maintenance release will give you the same access.)
What’s so incredible about doubling up on your app access? Our work and personal lives overlap like never before: you’re in the grocery store lineup and take a minute to approve a presentation, then scan the business headlines, then pass your phone to your kids to keep them happy with a game. It only makes sense that you have access to the best tools for business and productivity alongside the latest, greatest entertainment apps. With BlackBerry Passport, the tools you need and the apps you want are only seconds away.
Side by side near your keyboard… Someone should write a pop song about it.
Step into BlackBerry World and you’ll see app after app designed to give your productivity and business acumen a shot in the arm: think Bloomberg, Box, Evernote, WebEx and LinkedIn. With BlackBerry security you know you’re getting trusted apps that are triple-checked against malware and piracy. So you can get the job done without worry.
Industry-leading business and productivity tools are all right here in BlackBerry World.
Amazon Appstore: Android Apps Arrive
Once you’ve loaded up with new tools for smarter working, flip over to the Amazon Appstore. Whether you’re looking for an addictive game like Candy Crush Saga or Minecraft – Pocket Edition, or a mobile extension of your favourite social experiences like Pinterest, it’s all here. You’ve got access to a huge selection of Android apps and games in the Amazon Appstore on your BlackBerry Passport.
Help yourself to Amazon’s FREE app of the day. Every day.
BONUS: The Amazon Appstore offers a paid Android app or game for FREE, every single day. Try them out, and if they’re keepers, fantastic: you don’t pay a cent.
