TELUS to release the BlackBerry Passport, here are some pictures

One of the most talked-about smartphones over the last number of months is the BlackBerry Passport. The 4.5-inch smartphone will be BlackBerry’s first flagship in over a year and comes with a number of unique features. The Passport, according to the company, “reinvents the mobile keyboard,” and also acts as a trackpad.

The Passport has a stainless steel frame with a matte backing, a 4.5-inch 1440×1440 pixel LCD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM, a 13MP camera, 2MP front-facing camera, a non-removable 3450 mAh battery, and will come pre-loaded with the Amazon Appstore running OS

Most Canadian carriers will probably release the BlackBerry Passport, but we can now confirm that TELUS will be on the list. According to our sources, the Passport is scheduled for an “early September” availability. No indication of price points.

BlackBerry recently offered up the opportunity for Berry enthusiasts to “pre-register to receive emails about BlackBerry Passport availability.”
