It’s Valentine’s Day time, and BlackBerry wants to celebrate it by offering you a discount on its flagship phone, the Passport. All three colors – black, white and red – of the device are to be sold at $100 less in the US and $125 less in Canada. This discount is slated to last only until February 16.
The black and white models of the BlackBerry Passport usually retail in the US at $599, while the fiery red variant goes for $699. This means under the discount, the black and white models will be available for $499 and the red one for $599.
The uniquely built Passport handset was released by the company back in September last year. It is highlighted by a square 4.5-inch display which proffers its visuals in a resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels. Moreover, a physical keyboard with touchpad gestures has also been granted to it by the Canadian company.
BlackBerry’s very own BB 10.3 OS runs on it, offering benefits that include a Siri-like smart personal digital assistant and the ability to run Android apps through the Amazon Appstore. The company recently succeeded this phone with the new Classic handset which offers slightly modest specs and grabs looks that are reminiscent of old BB devices.
