Despite the unfortunate failure of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, diehard fans have been craving an updated version.

BlackBerry fans can already get the closest thing to a BlackBerry tablet with the Passport. Although, that has a touch-enabled physical keyboard.

What if you could do a similar design, but as a full fledged tablet? This idea is what the BlackBerry WorkBook concept seeks to express.

The graphic designer behind the WorkBook concept says it would have the following physical details, if it ever were to come to fruition:

  • Dimensions: 196 x 152 x 7.9 mm
  • Screen 8 ” (x 16 9)
  • Keyboard: 180 x 34 mm (33 keys)

Additionally, the spacebar appears to double as a notification dock. Check out this odd-looking, yet stunningly gorgeous BlackBerry WorkBook concept further in the gallery below:

Perhaps, we could nickname such a design as the Passport XL. Nevertheless, let us know in the comments if you’d ever want a BlackBerry tablet with a physical keyboard like this.
