Look and appearance:

Blackberry passport has a dimension of 128 x 90.3 x 9.3 mm (Height x Width x Thickness) wich weighs 194grams which seems to be a little bit heavier than normal smartphones.
Blackberry phones are more used at corporate companies and less used as a personal device.
Having said that this Blackberry Passport seems to be perfect for official use.
It has a pretty decent 4.5 inch sqaure display of 1440×1440 resolution which makes it really better for documents reading and editing on the go.
But because of this it really looks very bulky and less stylish.

Keyboard features:

The following video explains the keyboard features of a typical but extra ordinary Blackberry phone.
On-Key Scrolling, Flick to type, Swipe to delete, Fine cursor control.

Both BlackBerry World and the Amazon Appstore come preloaded on the Passport as standalone stores which gives you access to tons of applications.

Blackberry World:

Blackberry world comes with hell lot of apps designed to give your productivity and business cherry on the cake: think Bloomberg, Box, Evernote, WebEx and LinkedIn etc.
