Video: BlackBerry explains why your iPhone is too wimpy to ‘work wide’

As we’ve noted before, the BlackBerry Passport isn’t for the faint of heart — it’s a manly tool to be used for real work, and if its large square display and wide boxy frame intimidate you, then tough! BlackBerry this month put up a new video that once again shows the advantage of having a large square display like the one on the Passport gives you the ability to get more real work done, especially when compared to a svelte little display like the one on your iPhone.

Tech reporter explains why she dumped her iPhone for the ‘sexy’ BlackBerry Passport

We’ve heard the BlackBerry Passport described as many things, but this might be the first time we’ve heard someone call it “sexy” before. There’s a first time for everything, however, and BlackBerry has posted an interview with Tamarta Clarke, a tech reporter based in the Middle East who explains why she’s given up her iPhone and has instead decided to go with the “sexy” BlackBerry Passport.

Video: A slab of asphalt survives being subjected to a BlackBerry Passport drop test

The BlackBerry Passport is so big and rugged that it’s quickly garnering a reputation as the Chuck Norris of smartphones — in other words, we expect that when it’s subjected to a drop test, we’re more worried about what will happen to the parking lot asphalt than the actual phone.

Are you man enough for the BlackBerry Passport?

Are you man enough for the BlackBerry Passport?

The BlackBerry Passport is a great device… if you’re man enough to handle it. That’s the message that National Post writer Jonathan Kay is delivering with his review of the Passport in which he proclaims that BlackBerry’s newest flagship phone is the most masculine device around. In fact, he says that the Passport’s musclebound virility is so strong that some of the lady-folk in his life find it a might bit intimidating. More →

Tim Allen gives the BlackBerry Passport a high-profile endorsement on Jimmy Kimmel

BlackBerry would never do anything gimmicky like pay U2 to play at its flagship phone launch… well, OK, it did sort of appoint Alicia Keys to be its creative director that one time and it did have Wayne Gretzky introduce the Passport, but those two things were totally different because there’s always something pure about what they do! The point is, BlackBerry has never really been about getting celebrity endorsements for its products, although we can’t imagine it will turn them down if they just happen to come along. More →

BlackBerry fanboy rips into everyone for being too stupid to understand the Passport’s greatness

BlackBerry fanboy rips into everyone for being too stupid to understand the Passport’s greatness

BlackBerry unveiled its new Passport flagship smartphone last week and media reaction so far has been decidedly mixed. In particular, many reviewers took issue with the Passport’s more square design and its boxy frame that they said made the device difficult to hold. BerryFlow’s Jubei Raziel isn’t hearing any of it, however, and he’s written a long tirade that rips into both the media and the average consumer for not being smart enough to comprehend the BlackBerry Passport’s true greatness.

BlackBerry Passport Preorders 200,000

BlackBerry has received 200,000 Passport preorders in just two days

BlackBerry has received 200,000 Passport preorders in just two days

Will the BlackBerry Passport prove to be BlackBerry’s big comeback device? That’s still in question but the device has definitely generated some solid early interest — per Counterpoint Research analyst Neil Shah, BlackBerry CEO John Chen said on Friday that the company has received 200,000 Passport preorders over the last two days. While those obviously aren’t Apple or Samsung-type numbers, BlackBerry doesn’t need them to be since the Passport was designed to be much more of a niche device aimed squarely at corporate power users.

BlackBerry Passport Launch Analysis

I have no idea if BlackBerry’s strategy will work… but I like it anyway

I have no idea if BlackBerry’s strategy will work… but I like it anyway

OK, let’s get something out of the way: I think the BlackBerry Passport looks utterly ridiculous. But then again, BlackBerry didn’t design the device for me and that’s not a bad thing. While watching BlackBerry’s presentation on the Passport on Wednesday, I actually came away impressed by how much the company is laser-focused on designing and selling devices to hardcore enterprise users who only want their phones to double as work devices and nothing more.
