It had not been also long earlier when we mere consumers and business pundits suggested completion of RIM’s BlackBerry schedule of devices, following the revolt of Android and iPhone in a market that was BlackBerry’s niche. Nonetheless today, the firm is extremely proudly offering up to $ 550 to iPhone users to unload their mobile phone for its most recent; the BlackBerry Ticket.

The BlackBerry Ticket is really one unique device that provides a really efficient large screen which does not care much for the typical 16:9 ratio that the majority of smartphones out there are concentrating on, and takes place to supply a 4.5-inch screen which could seem smaller sized than that on that iPhone 6, but at 1440 x 1440 pixels and 1:1 facet ratio, you will certainly discover on your own with sufficient room without having to revolve the phone. Oh and it sports a QWERTY keypad with some significant tech within it.

I’ll leave the specs for you to collect; meanwhile the promo is supplying trade-ins for users with at the very least an iPhone 4s seeking to relocate to the brand-new Passport. BlackBerry is further supplying a top-up of $ 150 as well for users selling their iPhones for the Passport in addition to the trade-in worth. So as an example, if you have an iPhone 5 with a trade-in value of $ 150, you will certainly be coming back $ 300 in your quest to buy the Key. Just to be clear, you’re not specifically being paid $ 300 and acquiring the Key, and provided BlackBerry should make some significant inroads, it is still not that determined.

Naturally the trade-in worth will certainly additionally differ with your iPhone’s storage space dimension, service provider and much importantly, its bodily problem as well. The iPhone 6 – – as each the graph from BlackBerry – – actually has an optimum sell worth of $ 400 and if it had not been for the $ 150 top-up, users would certainly be looking at BlackBerry with one eyebrow increased.


For those more worried with office work and large displays to function with, the Ticket running the brand-new BlackBerry OS 10 is a powerful smartphone in its own right where the firm is striving and fast at bringing in some really distinct attributes to the OS, and while it does manage to run Android apps, it still does not have the expertise of Apple’s App Store, or Google’s Play Store. From the equipment’s viewpoint, I assume also one of the most die-hard iPhone fans will recognize the fantastic build high quality of premium BlackBerry devices.
