BlackBerry's Passport for AT&T isn't quite so square

Love the idea of BlackBerry's extra-wide Passport, but wish its ergonomics were a little better suited to your hands and pockets? You'll want to pick up the newly announced AT&T version, then. This first (and only, since it's exclusive) US carrier model both rounds off the corners and adds a more pronounced chin that could make it easier to type -- sadly, though, this doesn't bring a fourth row of hardware keys. It's otherwise the same oddball BlackBerry you've come to know, including that signature square 4.5-inch display, a reasonably speedy Snapdragon 801 processor, 32GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front cam. AT&T hasn't pinpointed an exact release date, but its Passport will be available for $200 on-contract, $22 per month on a Next 24 plan or $650 up front.

Oh, and AT&T has finally nailed down the cost of its variant of the BlackBerry Classic, too. There's still no firm launch schedule, but the Classic will sell for $50 on-contract, $14 per month on Next 24 and $420 outright. It's identical on the outside to its international peers, so you're still looking at a 3.5-inch display, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon chip, 16GB of space, an 8-megapixel rear cam and a 2-megapixel front shooter.
