BlackBerry Passport: 200,000 pre-orders in 2 days

It seems that for many months advertising campaign dedicated to the new QWERTY-smartphone BlackBerry Passport, gives fruit.Yesterday, the company's CEO John Chen said that two days BlackBerry received 200,000 pre-orders for the new smartphone, which is a very good indicator given the fact that the device is a niche and focused not on the widest possible audience. In addition, it was announced that BlackBerry Passport became the most successful phone that is offered without a contract according to the online retailer Amazon.

Of course, climbing to the top of Amazon sales may not be indicative of long-term success of the smartphone - own phone company Amazon Fire Phone, too, for a while was in first place after the announcement, but the public interest in the machine rather quickly extinguished. However, a new trend is indicative of the continuing public interest in the activities of BlackBerry, and hence the collapse, which has more than one month forecast of analysts, again postponed.

Recall that the distinguishing feature is the root Passport 4.5-inch display with a resolution 1440h1440 pixels. Installed inside the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 800 with a frequency of 2.2 GHz, 3 GB of RAM and battery with 3450 mAh. The smartphone went on sale for $ 599.
