BlackBerry Passport

There’s been a ton of new details that’s come out on the BlackBerry Passport in the past week or two, including the device’s official name, its release window and several images. Today that stream of information continues with some additional images and even a brief video of the Passport in action.

Twitter user @halobandit has shared a number of photos that show the BlackBerry Passport in the wild. Just as in the previous shots, the Passport features a large, square display and a set of wide physical keys.

According to @halobandit, the Passport features 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and a beefy 3450mAh battery. It’s also said that the Passport’s 1440x1440 screen is of the LCD variety.

In addition to these photos, a brief video of the Passport has made its way online. The 9-second clip shows off the Passport’s browser and its performance while zooming and scrolling.

The BlackBerry Passport is shaping up to be a pretty impressive handset for folks that still want a physical keyboard. Its size and shape might make handling it a bit awkward for some, but in this age of huge phablet smartphones with 6-inch and larger displays, the Passport’s size shouldn’t be that big of a deal.

What do you think of the BlackBerry Passport so far? Are any of you thinking about checking it out when it hits stores in September?
