The new Blackberry Phablet, Blackberry Passport has been launched at $200
With a 4.5 inch display and modeled in rectangle shape, Passport doesn't look much like a comfortable design to hold. However, Blackberry has stated that rectangular, wider design is added specifically to increase the quality of resolution. Providing up to 30 hours of mixed use, this Phablet is said to have the best of battery life among all its opponents. Other noteworthy features include Blackberry assistant, Google Now and access to Amazon App store for Android.
The pricing plan of Blackberry Passport is currently $200. It is expected to go up by $50 within next few months. This move has invited criticism all the way from the Wall-street itself. Passport, rather than a ground breaking innovation, is expected to keep Blackberry alive within the market and pave way to the Blackberry products that are yet to arrive. Expected price in Indian market is around Rs.36,000.
