BlackBerry have announced that there is now a Silver Edition version of their popular Passport smartphone available in the USA.
With key improvements in battery life and an updated touch-enabled keypad along with a fresh design, the Passport Silver Edition is a step above the old version. The phone boasts a silver finish with curved corners, and a reinforced stainless steel frame protects the 4.5 inch square touchscreen.
“It brings together BlackBerry’s latest OS platform, enhanced productivity features, and a refined industrial design based on customer and user feedback to deliver an unmatched experience for professionals who value precision and focus,” said Scott Wenger, Global Head of Design at BlackBerry.
The Silver Edition also comes loaded with BlackBerry’s new operating system, the 10.3.2. With thirty hours of mixed use available thanks to the new 3450 mAH battery, no matter how often it’s used, the phone will last all day. And with a 2.2 GHz quad core processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 32 GB hard drive that can be expanded up to 128 GB with a Micro SD card, it’s unlikely that this phone will run out of space for files or emails.
The BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition will cost $549 USD in North America (£352 GBP). It will also be available in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands in the coming weeks, with limited quantities in other selected regions.
