BlackBerry fans are no doubt excited about September 24th. The company has confirmed that on this day it is going to formally announce its new flagship smartphone which is called the BlackBerry Passport. Information about its release will be provided at the event, some believe that its destined to hit the market on October 1st. If a leaked picture is to be believed it looks like T-Mobile might carry BlackBerry’s newest device in the U.S.
A leaked picture of the BlackBerry Passport carries T-Mobile’s logo on its back has emerged online giving rise to speculation that perhaps Magenta is going to offer the Passport once it hits the market.
Though one should approach this with caution. T-Mobile and BlackBerry CEOs had a bit of back and forth earlier this year over Magenta’s promotion which gave customers incentive for switching from a BlackBerry device to the Apple iPhone 5s. This resulted in BlackBerry deciding not to renew its contract with T-Mobile U.S.
So either this leaked image is a fake and BlackBerry’s next flagship won’t be available at T-Mobile or both companies have decided to bury the hatchet and start afresh with what might be BlackBerry’s most innovative device to date. No confirmation has come in from either company so take this with a grain of salt.
