Hands-on: BlackBerry Passport

It is perhaps fitting that a company as maligned and battered as BlackBerry would launch a new smartphone that has one of the oddest dimensions and form factors seen in a handset to date. For a device that is supposed to reflect the notion of “serious business,” as company execs kept saying, this is a phone that is a head-turner, though it’s too soon to say whether it will turn the right heads.
