CES 2015 brought many big announcement for both QNX and BlackBerry. More partnerships, road maps, BBM numbers and so on.
BlackBerry also announced the release of the Classic and a newly redesigned Passport for AT&T which will be available soon at $419.99 and $649.99 off contract respectively.
The new design for the Passport sports rounded corners and a larger chin under the keyboard. Some “tech bloggers” have taken to the internet claiming its “inexplicable” why BlackBerry would do this (although their article actually explains it fully).
To save you the hassle of having to click on such click bait headlines, here is the explanation in one simple quote from John Chen reported on CrackBerry.
“AT&T wanted rounded corners. Some of us are more square. No other reason than that.”
There you have it Dieter, this “inexplicable” mystery has been solved. Its okay, soon you will be on The Verge of making sense.
