It has been a pretty huge day for BlackBerry today. The company announced its latest earnings report, which was better than analysts expected. The stock has gone up, and CEO John Chen has decided to take the cover off of the BlackBerry codenamed Windermere, which is now officially known as the BlackBerry Passport.
Canadian Press’ David Friend has provided us with an awesome picture via Twitter of John Chen holding the Passport, and it looks HOT! Yes, it’s pretty large, but that’s a good thing, and we already knew that it would be. The display will be more than enough for anyone – like me – that complained about the Q10’s screen real estate. Couple that with the fact that it’ll have a physical QWERTY keyboard, and I’m not quite sure there could be a better mix of the two aspects of a BlackBerry device.

Obviously, once we get our hands on one we’ll be able to tell you guys more about it, but until now, pictures will have to suffice. If you haven’t already seen what the Classic will look like, head on over to this post to check out the slide Chen showed off at their shareholder meeting in Waterloo this morning.
Has today changed your mind about which BlackBerry device you’ll be getting in the near future? Are you going Classic or Passport? Let us know!
