BlackBerry has received 200,000 Passport preorders in just 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.

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.

BlackBerry Passport Release Date

The BlackBerry Passport is one step closer to being your next smartphone

The BlackBerry Passport is one step closer to being your next smartphone

Both BlackBerry and its diehard fans are very excited about the upcoming BlackBerry Passport, which BlackBerry promises will feature a “revolutionary” new keyboard that the company says consumers are “clamoring” for. CrackBerry notices that the Passport has just passed through the Federal Communications Commission and will apparently at least be supported by both AT&T and Rogers in North America. CrackBerry also says that T-Mobile could theoretically support the Passport as well, but given the recent fighting between those two companies we doubt that we’ll see CEO John Legere promoting it through his Twitter account anytime soon.
