By September 28th, 2014 AT 3:03 AM

According to the reports, Blackberry has sold out 200,000 units of its flagship device, the Blackberry Passport. Though the numbers are not as big when compared to the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, but it is being forecasted as a green signal for BlackBerry. The wide, square-shaped handset managed to create quite a buzz among buyers. The fact that 200,000 units were sold out also represents that John Chen is taking an unorthodox approach with the company. It took Amazon around 6 hours to go out of stock for Passport, while BlackBerry’s website went out of stock in 10 hours.

The BlackBerry Passport stands unique with its square display and a full QWERTY keyboard with some special enhancements. It features a 4.5-inch 1440p display, BlackBerry OS 10.3 operating system and a 13MP camera with 1080p video recording at 60 fps. Under the hood, it is equipped with a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The device, which is designed to get things done quickly, just as what lies in BlackBerry’s DNA, also lasts at least a full day even with heavy usage, thanks to its massive 3450 mAh battery.

The BlackBerry Classic, their forthcoming smartphone will be launched in November. It looks like the traditional BlackBerry Q10 with a full physical QWERTY with trackpad and function keys which were absent in the former models.
