There has not been much official buzz since BlackBerry CEO John Chen quickly showed off the BlackBerry Passport along with the BlackBerry Classic during the last earnings report. Today on the official BlackBerry Blog, the large screen on the Passport (1440×1440 resolution) is explained further as to why it’s so important to have it that size, and the productivity that comes along with it. In the picture you’ll see the device in between both the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S5 just to exemplify how the Passport can show more at a time. Use cases highlighted include:
- For architects and mortgage brokers, imagine being able to look at full designs and schematics on the go, and still being able to handle piles of virtual paperwork with ease.
- In the healthcare field, picture being able to go through x-rays or medical documentation in the office with a patient, on a device that can maintain the necessary security standards for HIPAA compliance.
- In the area of finance, how about navigating your Web-based trading platform on your device? With enough screen real estate, you can clearly see the fluctuation in your stock and determine whether it’s time to sell.
- Writers will truly be unlocked with a navigable keyboard, while the large square screen enables faster content development and delivery. When you are looking to type stories or notes, your virtual keyboard doesn’t cover most of your screen.
