bb-passport-whiteSo earlier today BlackBerry officially announced the BlackBerry Passport. The handset has been pegged for a release on the 25th of September but according to reports, it seems that the handset has since been sold out on the official BlackBerry website, which would seem to hint at its popularity.

At the same time considering that BlackBerry had offered a $100 discount to early adopters, we guess everyone was looking to cash in on what seemed like a pretty good deal in which the phone was priced at $599, down from its suggest retail price of $699. We should also note that the phone also appears to be unavailable on Amazon at the moment.

However if you’d like to be informed of when it will become available again, you can leave your email address on BlackBerry or Amazon’s website, after which they will notify you when the handset comes back in stock. We can’t be sure how long this will take, but hopefully it won’t take too long.

No word on how many devices were available to begin with, but either way it looks like the BlackBerry Passport has turned out to be quite a hit, especially with its large display and its unique keyboard. So, have you placed your order for the BlackBerry Passport yet?
