BlackBerry is definitely not doing too well globally where its smartphone sales are concerned, but the company does not look as though they are going to go out without a fight. No sir, and while BlackBerry World Music & Services will shut down next month, there has been a positive development in word that the team up between BlackBerry and Amazon will see the Appstore appear on BlackBerry devices in due time. How about the alleged next generation BlackBerry smartphone known as the BlackBerry Q30, which has been given the nickname the Windermere? That might be eventually called the BlackBerry Passport as we found out today.
The BlackBerry Passport has been touted by company CEO John Chen to be revealed at a London event later this September. I would like to think that this is an extremely auspicious name to begin with, especially when you consider how passports are capable of opening up doors and offering passage for the holder to new lands, which is exactly what BlackBerry ought to be doing to salvage its business..
Rumored hardware specifications for the BlackBerry Passport include a square-shaped display at 1440 x 1440 pixel resolution, 3GB RAM, a 13MP shooter at the back, a QWERTY keyboard as well as a massive 3450mAh battery.
