BlackBerry Passport front

The BlackBerry Passport isn’t slated to hit stores until September, but BlackBerry has been working to satiate our appetite for the large BB10 device by showing it and its features off in photos. Today that trend continues with some more images that show the Passport in the wild.

The folks at CNET managed to spend some hands-on time with the BlackBerry Passport and snapped some photos in the process. There’s not really anything new revealed by the shots, but they do give us another clear peek at the Passport hardware and software.

BlackBerry Passport iPhone 5 comparison

As you can see in image above, the Passport’s large screen allows it to display four rows of apps with five apps in each one. Meanwhile, the second photo shows just how large the Passport is, sporting a body thats nearly twice as wide as an iPhone 5. For reference, the iPhone measures 2.31 inches (58.6mm) wide.

We don’t yet have the Passport’s full spec list, but we do know that it’s rocking a 1400x1400 display, 3450mAh battery and a “touch-enabled” keyboard. Other specs that are rumored include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a microSD slot. While the Passport may not be the end-all, be-all device that returns BlackBerry to its former glory, it’s certainly an interesting handset that ought to garner a fair share of attention when it launches in September.
