BlackBerry Passport: First Smartphone with Touch-capacitive physical keyboard.
BlackBerry is trying to make something different what people already use. So BlackBerry is coming with the first smartphone that will have touch-capacitive physical Qwerty Keyboard. We already know that Blackberry was the third top smartphone seller after Android Phones and iPhone, but recently BlackBerry is losing its market even in the US and UK, that makes BlackBerry to think differently and make something better what users can’t wait to buy.
According to the guardian, BlackBerry had around 3.6 million users in the UK at the end of 2013, and Windows Phone had around 1.9 million users, but Windows Phone users are increasing. By the end of 2014, it is expected that there will be 2.7 million Windows Phone users in comparison to 2.4 million Blackberry users. So, we see the change here. This forecast can only be changed if BlackBerry can launch something great.
I won’t say more what BlackBerry should do or not, they know better then me. Hahahaha…… Let’s know about the BlackBerry’s upcoming smartphone which is expected to be launched in September 2014.
