BlackBerry Passport Launch 9/24?

Here it comes...

On September 24, all eyes will be on BlackBerry as we host exclusive, invite-only events in Toronto, London and Dubai to show off… well I guess you’ll have to wait and see.

That would be the Passport, the expected 10.3 software-driven "phablet" style phone with a monster screen, keyboard, insanely-large battery (full-day++ life under heavy use) and large improvements in specs across the board (e.g. 12mp camera, quad-core processor, etc.)

If you want to know how large it is grab your passport.  That also will tell you how it will fit in various places, like your pocket (yes, it will.)

I already have 10.3 on my Z10 and it's awesome.  Add to that the additional memory, battery size, keyboard, much larger and higher-resolution screen and ridiculously-faster processor -- along with the expected release of Blend, the software (which is in 10.3) that will provide a "virtual terminal" into your phone from your desktop and you wind up with an integrated messaging and information system that works when you're in front of your laptop or desktop on a seamless basis and when not, it's in your pocket and goes with you.

Oh, and it's not full of either Apple's or Google's spyware.

Shut up and take my money!
