BlackBerry is gearing up to launch two new QWERTY smartphones this year, the Passport and Classic. What price might we see for the next-generation in physical keyboard BlackBerry smartphones?

Swedish online retailer Confidence Business might have the answer. The company sells a multitude of mobile smartphones and accessories, including an array of BlackBerry devices.

Confidence Business currently has placeholders for the BlackBerry Passport and Classic. They list the Passport at 6,499 SEK, which is about $955 USD. The Classic priced at 5,499 SEK is about $806 USD.

Of course, this is likely the factory unlocked pricing and bit over priced. For example, they list the Porsche P’9982 at 23,995 SEK, which is over $3,500 USD. Madness, compared to ShopBlackBerry.com selling the P’9982 for $1,990 USD.

Nevertheless, we expect the Passport to at least retain a high-end price tag and follow in the footsteps of the Z30. What do you think will be the Passport and Classic pricing?
