Limited Edition BlackBerry Passport on sale in UK

The red BlackBerry Passport has finally gone on sale in the UK. This version of the phablet/smartphone device with its physical keyboard and touchscreen won't be available in the UK for long though as it is only getting a limited-edition run in this country.

The BlackBerry Passport launched in the UK and US in September last year and features a 4.5in display, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage and a reported 30 hour-battery life. Its 13-megapixel rear camera is also capable of recording video in full HD.

The device in red retails for around £525 but customers that opt for a black and white colour scheme can pick one up for a more wallet friendly £380. You can, of course, get it for less upfront, or even free in some cases, if you pick it up on a pay monthly plan.

New Passport users will also get the latest version of its operating system - BlackBerry 0.3.1, which comes with a raft of new features, including the ability to download Android apps from the App store.

The new update will also add a new 'Blend' service that will allow users to sync content and messaging across a range of devices, including tablets and desktop PCs, and includes its own take on Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana in the form of the ' BlackBerry Assistant'.

BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3.1 is also now available to download for users with the Q5, Q10, Z10, Z3, Z30, P'9982, P'9983 and the new Passport handsets.

If you fancy getting your hands on the limited edition red BlackBerry Passport, get in there quick before it disappears again!
