Carphone Warehouse dishes the stainless steel dirt on the BlackBerry Passport (video)

If you’re wondering what the BlackBerry Passport looks like in a professionally-produced video, look no further. Carphone Warehouse, the company merging with Dixons to become the UK’s biggest smartphone retailer, has put together a short overview of the wide-as-a-house smartphone, detailing some of the features we already know, and a couple we don’t.

The narrator navigates vertically and horizontally through screens using the touch-sensitive keyboard, and she also points out that the Passport has a dedicated button for accessing BlackBerry Assistant, the company’s newly-announced Siri competitor.

She also points out that the frame is made of stainless steel, a material BlackBerry has used in the past, as it is stronger and more solid than aluminum.

BlackBerry is expected to begin selling the Passport sometime in September.
