Marc Etzold

BlackBerry intends to recover the new “Passport” market share in the business sector. Analysts grant the unusual smartphone opportunities. Business Week Online has tested the device.

Ten percent battery charge. And in the middle of the Brandenburg province. I have several appointments perceived, in between every now and then read messages written some mails and done a few phone calls. By 15 clock then fails the battery. The problem: At 16 clock I need to send to my editors a product via smartphone – one socket or wireless for my laptop it is not far and wide. This is exactly what happened to me a few weeks ago. My article, I was still able to send. I had taken precautions and a spare battery.

Who is using his smartphone as a work tool, knows the problem. For intensive use, it is often the afternoon off.

cars traveling alone or looking in the car park even a parking space – which is a vision of the future of driving. VW is now taking over the existing BlackBerry Research in Bochum.

Blackberry has with the “Passport” now has a new smartphone presented, which is done this problem. The perennial battery has a capacity of 3450 milliamp-hours (mAh). For comparison: The new iPhone 6 (Display 4.7 inch) comes with a 1,810 mAh battery, the iPhone 6 Plus (5.5 inches) a 2,915 mAh battery

When BlackBerry a 4.5-inch display has been installed. In short: The new iPhones have to be supplied with energy with relatively small batteries significantly larger displays. On working days with normal several hours of use (email, WhatsApp, make phone calls, surf) was the Passport Battery evening full or 50 percent. For intensive use, such as in the Brandenburg nowhere I came throughout the day and still had about 10 to 25 percent charged.

The Passport BlackBerry brings probably design technically the most unusual smartphone of the year the market. Unlike other flagships, the Passport is not in the length, but in width. The Canadians have been oriented to the dimensions of a passport.

The screen is about 30 percent wider than currently available 5-inch smartphone. While there about 40 characters fit into a series, it is the 60th Passport BlackBerry speaks of the “best mobile reading experience in any situation”. And indeed, I have the Passport tested almost two weeks at a time and learned to appreciate the extra space. Whether news pages or emails – to read and write makes with the wide screen joy

Revival of the physical keyboard

disadvantages of the unusual design but also: The Passport does not fit in your pocket – no more than in the inside pocket of a jacket. In addition, the device is difficult to use with one hand. This is particularly true for the three-row physical keyboard. Which is under the crisp 4.5 inch display in a 1: 1 format installed

Although the letters have a great pressure point.. Some are simple but too far apart. Even after intensive use typing on the physical keyboard takes longer than a touch device, in which the letters appear.
