The Blackberry Passport Has Business Written All Over It

Passport is BlackBerry 's newest smartphone device with a large square screen and increased interactive capabilities aimed at enterprise customers, and includes Amazon.com's 240,000 Android apps. While many consumers are excited about the prospects of a larger BlackBerry device with Android capabilities, it is clear that Passport has game-changing potential and enterprise success written all over it.

Passport's wide appeal

BlackBerry has made some nice design changes with its newest handset device, Passport. Most notably, the Passport has a square, 4.5 inch display, and a physical keyboard with touch capabilities, thus giving users the best of both worlds.

Foolish Thoughts

At the very least, Passport is a huge deal for BlackBerry, because once tapped into an industry with a key piece of software and hardware, the company can then create applications -- now partnered with Amazon and Android -- to allow employees to interact with consumers who also have BlackBerry devices.

It also opens the door for BlackBerry to sell future hardware and software to existing industries, or enter new ones like aerospace, construction, or retail with Project Ion. Hence, Passport might be the piece that fits BlackBerry's big data initiative all together, while looking pretty cool to many consumers at the same time.

In fact, ABI Research predicts 485 million of this type of device will be sold per year. But one small company makes Apple's gadget possible. And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early-in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here !
