If you thought Blackberry was odd enough to bring the Passport out anyway, wait till you have heard this one. The Canadian OEM has decided that if the normal black and silver accent Passport does not dent your pocket enough, you must have the BlackBerry Passport in golden variant.
The smartphone is basically a limited variant BlackBerry Passport and has trims of Gold color. It is indeed a collector’s item as only 50 of these devices have been produced and will be on sale. The news of this rare device was made public when the device was listed on the official Shopberry website before any sort of official unveiling.
The BlackBerry Passport Gold color will not come cheap and in fact will set you back by about CAN$999 as opposed to the normal passport which sells for about CAN$ 699. Not just this, you will also get ‘Limited Edition’ engraved on the phone so that the blow is not al that heavy to take.
The description on the site reads, “BlackBerry is offering its most exclusive product to date: the Gold BlackBerry Passport. Only 50 Gold BlackBerry Passports worldwide have been built. With gold-colored metal trim and frets, you will quickly see that it is no ordinary Passport”.
It would be interesting to see whether the device will have a global launch or would it stay a Canada and US exclusive.
