A week ago, we reported how the BlackBerry passport Silver Edition was available for pre-order in the Middle East and would be available from 31st August.
If you are in that region and waiting on the silver variant of the BlackBerry Passport, that day is now here and theÃ‚Â BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition is now available in UAE and Saudi Arabia
The BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition is in a class all its own, featuring a stunning silver finish with refined, curved corners, large square touch screen display and reinforced stainless steel frame for extra strength and durability.
An essential business tool, the device delivers the same productivity enjoyed by other BlackBerry Passport products, as well as an updated QWERTY touch-enabled keyboard, battery power that lasts more than a full day of mixed use, and BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3.2.
Inspired by actual passports, the universal symbol of mobility, the size and form factor of BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition is portable enough to easily tuck into pockets and use wherever you go. Key features of the device include:
Large High-Resolution Square Screen Ã¢â‚¬â€œThe BlackBerry Passport includes a 4.5Ã¢â‚¬Â square screen, 1440×1440 pixel (453 dpi) HD display and CorningÃ‚Â® GorillaÃ‚Â® Glass 3 for added strength. Innovative BlackBerry Keyboard Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The BlackBerry PassportÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s revolutionary keyboard brings innovation to input with a responsive touch surface like a trackpad that lets you perform many touch functions directly on the keyboard. Scroll web pages, flick to type or slide along the keys to move the cursor, leaving the full screen space for viewing. BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3.2 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The BlackBerry Passport comes preloaded with the new BlackBerry 10.3.2 operating system, including features such as BlackBerry Assistant and Amazon Appstore. Best-in-Class Battery Life Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The 3450 mAh battery is the largest among the top selling smartphones and phablets and, when tested against a very active user, provides up to 30 hours of mixed use Ã¢â‚¬â€œ BlackBerryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best battery power to date. Dual app storefronts preloaded for access to a huge selection of apps for work and play:

BlackBerry Assistant Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The BlackBerry Assistant is BlackBerryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first digital assistant and can be used with voice and text commands to help users manage work and personal email, contacts, calendar and other native BlackBerry 10 applications. BlackBerry Assistant intelligently determines how to respond based on how the user interacts with it Ã¢â‚¬â€œ if you type, it responds silently, if you speak, it speaks back and if you activate over Bluetooth, it speaks back with additional context because it assumes you might not have access to the screen. BlackBerry Blend Ã¢â‚¬â€œ BlackBerry Blend 1.2 brings a new refreshed UI and additional functionality and is now available for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones. BlackBerry Blend brings messaging and content on your BlackBerry smartphone to your computer or tablet.

BlackBerry Blend works across multiple operating systems including Mac, Windows, iOS and Android.

BlackBerry Natural Sound Ã¢â‚¬â€œ BlackBerry Passport comes with powerful speakers and a quad microphone system that delivers a high-quality listening experience. BlackBerry Natural Sound Technology is built in to adapt Wi-Fi and cellular call sound depending upon phone position and background noise, automatically adjusting volume so you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to.
