A couple of weeks ago, the BlackBerry Dallas made its way through the FCC, hinting that it could be announced soon. It was later rumored that the handset would be officially known as the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition and if you’re wondering when will we officially get to see the handset, wonder no more.

BlackBerry has officially announced the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition. Essentially both the BlackBerry Passport and the Passport Silver Edition handsets are more or less the same, with some design differences. According to BlackBerry, the Silver Edition has been given a stainless steel frame to reinforce its build and to add extra strength and durability.

The keyboard has also been improved upon to make it better for typing, and there is also the addition of rounded corners and a diamond weave pattern on the back that according to the company, helps with gripping the phone better. There have also been some changes made to the front and rear cameras to better protect it from wear and tear.

Other than that, its innards will remain identical to the BlackBerry Passport. Now for those who are interested in getting their hands on the device, the handset is currently available for purchase via BlackBerry’s website where it can be purchased unlocked for $549.
