Passport Unboxing

Unboxing the Blackberry Passport [Video]

When we first heard of Blackberry’s unconventional phone release roadmap, never in our wildest dreams did we imagine a mostly square, buttoned-touch-screened block of technology such as the Passport.

It’s probably the most polarising handset released this year, or this decade in fact.

Our editor for one, has quite a fancy for the phone, while others in the office think that it’s too bulky, heavy and largely unsuitable for everyday practical tasks — putting it in your pocket is a common concern.

Nevertheless, it’s here to stay and so are Blackberry’s future quirky plans. As far as those go, investors seem to like the new route the Canadian company has forged. But the real question is, will you?

Stay tuned for a full review coming next week, but for now, bask in the gorgeousness of the unboxing below.
