BlackBerry Passport Leather Flip Case

IMG_20140930_195951

The BlackBerry Passport launch and roll out is underway, and we thought you might want to know about some accessories available. First and foremost, here we have the BlackBerry Passport Leather Flip case. The BlackBerry Leather Flip case will be available in 2 colours, black and brown.

As you can see, the leather in this case, is the smooth texture type that we have seen mainly for the legacy BlackBerry devices.

Opening up the case, we can see a very simple design and a padding. What is the padding for?

Well, the BlackBerry Passport Leather Flip Case is like no other cases. For this case, you do not snap onto the device nor do you take something off to attach it in. This case needs you to stick it onto the device.

WAIT! WHAT? STICK?
Yes, that is right! The padding that you see is some durable tape that, according to BlackBerry, is rated to withstand up to 2000 stick and peels.

So why?
For this, we asked BlackBerry and the idea behind this was to keep the device as slim as possible.

That said, yes the BlackBerry Passport Leather Flip Case is not a hard casing, but a pretty soft one!

The usual hole for the all-important LED notification is there!

However, the BlackBerry Passport Leather Flip Case will not come with power saving technology, which means that it will not put your device into sleep mode once the cover is closed, nor wake wake it when it is opened.

So when will this be available? Well, BlackBerry says it is coming soon!

  1. The big problem with this case is, that it doesnt stay closed and its tendency is still to go open. There is no magnetic flip which would hold it closed.

  2. You can enable flip to sleep and lift to wake in the settings, Advanced Interaction.

  3. “will not come with power saving technology”
    Just when I start to believe BlackBerry is getting wise, they go pull a stupid stunt like this. *sigh*

  4. This is to be updated again as we double check with another sample
    (They were not expecting this back then)

  5. Thats not true! I bought the flip case from expansys and yes it has the power saving technology
