It looks like that white BlackBerry Passport picture that hit the internet earlier in the week was legit. Donny @BlackBerry stepped in an decided to set the record straight with another real white BlackBerry Passport picture. We have heard from a few people who have used the device and they are loving the feel in your hand. Donny decided to also share some thoughts with the designers of the BlackBerry Passport (Brian Paschke and Joseph Hofer). Check out what they had to say below:

Q: What are some of your design philosophies informing the white Passport?

Paschke: Our team chose this exact shade of white to work with the warmth of the unique, stainless steel frame. The color is custom to BlackBerry.

Hofer: On a detail level, the white color has been further tuned for each individual part and material in order to create overall color harmony.

Q: What inspired the look, feel and materials of the white Passport?

Paschke: The rear cover uses a ‘porcelain feel’ coating that is smooth to the touch while providing grip and complementing the soft touch coating used on the black Passport. So they work as a family.

Hofer: In fact, all of the surfaces for both the black and white Passport have been gently softened for comfort while maintaining a modern look. The finish along with the smooth shaping creates a refined experience.

Q: Tell me what makes the Passport so special to you in general?

Paschke: The Passport leverages our strengths and heritage, yet is new and innovative. As the name implies … the format is inspired by a traveler’s passport; a familiar and universal symbol of mobility. This familiarity has potential to leverage existing systems and standards.

Hofer: Though the layout may be unique, the experience of using Passport will feel familiar to many.

Q: As Editor of Inside BlackBerry, may I have one in white?

Paschke: No, no you may not.

  1. Actually, Donny did just the opposite. He confirmed it was. ;)

  2. Is the new passport running on blackberry 10 software?
    Also, can this device come with a battery as strong as the z30 may be stronger?
    I see the camera is 8megapixel, I hope this will be sharper from other BBM devices? BBM never had good cameras.
    With the above taken care of, then I will leave my dream of waiting for iPhone 6 and get the passport since they are coming out the same period.

    • Thankfully its yes on both of those. Nice camera and solid battery life.
      We just need to get BlackBerry to sponsor the drinks in that case :)

      • Thankfully as you said.
        One more thing please. How is the collaboration between the blackberry allocations market and that of android? Even if there is no improvement on that has the BBM apps market improved with the coming passport? I will miss pinterest, the version on blackberry market is not as robust as that of the Android. I am also happy that the passport has a large ram size and should be quicker. I must say that my z30 never hung till date.

  3. With the amazon app store coming preloaded most of those apps will be much easier to access and will remain up to date

  4. The white looks great. Though I would probably for for the Black. Need to see them both in my hands.
