BlackBerry’s hip square phone on TV3 Firstline
Posted on 12-Nov-2014 11:36 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


On Monday I went on TV3 Firstline to talk about the BlackBerry Passport with Sacha McNeil and Michael Wilson.

Even though the segment is short, I find TV is a great way of quickly letting people see what’s different about a phone like this. The BlackBerry Passport is big, but as you can see from the clip it fits comfortably in a jacket pocket. I get to show the size of the phone alongside the better known Apple iPhone 6 — the size comparison is useful. And I get to show how you can thumb type on the QWERTY keyboard.

My BlackBerry Passport review mentions that the phone is made for corporate customers. There’s software to help IT departments manage the phone and layers of built-in smartphone security not seen elsewhere.
