While the critics have been somewhat upset with the square shape BlackBerry Passport, the company, meanwhile, is busy preparing to launch a gold version of its latest high-end handset.

BlackBerry made clear right from the outset that the Passport was intended to attract the enterprise market, and it's immediately apparent that this isn't a tech toy for the common people. That's why the form factor and design of the BlackBerry Passport hardly resemble close to other flagship products.

The Amazon Appstore come pre-installed on the device itself. Users can also download apps from the BlackBerry World.
