You might not know the name Morten Lindstrom but if you look carefully through a lot of BlackBerry webinars, developer documentation and various other parts of BlackBerry related content, you’re sure to find his name. Morten is part of the BlackBerry community, especially the developer community being a BlackBerry Elite member. He gives up a lot of his time to help others but this time around Morten needs some help from #TeamBlackBerry.
Morten lives in Trinidad with his wife Nicole, who was recently diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. As Morten puts it, in the beginning it was all about being able to handle the pain, and good diet combined with pain killers was enough to help Nicole live a happy and positive life. However her situation soon deteriorated and she began having constant pain that not even morphine could stop, her energy level started dropping, and the days went from being active, to a fight for survival, all in less than a year.
The now extremely popular BlackBerry Passport that has seen sold out status in North America due to huge demand since it’s launch last Thursday has now launched in India. According to “Business Today
" the incredible innovative 4.5" square screened device with touch sensitive keyboard running OS 10.3 and pre-loaded with BlackBerry Blend is now available for pre-order for RS.49,990 both on Amazon.in
and BlackBerry stores.
Based on the popularity of recent BlackBerry devices and the already huge demand worldwide for The Passport we can be sure this excellent device will fare well in the world’s largest democracy. I for one can not wait for my own device to ship (currently on back order). This daring device is sure to please all comments whether for business or pleasure. This is by far BlackBerry’s most powerful device to date sporting details you can see in the image below.

Today’s Q2 fiscal 2015 earnings report showed BlackBerry making fantastic headway. In the press release I posted on this morning I did not quite get into the specifics other than it all looked quite positive. A few things showed impressive change and only serves to reinforce my believe that CEO John Chen is not only the right man in charge to right a listing ship but the right guy to take that ship to foreign shores and lead a revolution in a mobile renaissance of sorts. For one we all know by now that the highly innovative BlackBerry Passport has sold 200,000 units in its first two days on sale and currently the #1 device being sold on Amazon. This device took guts to green light and I’m sure I speak for the BlackBerry faithful, thank god he did! This was certainly one heck of a calculated risk and so far it’s paying off! Anecdotally I’ve already heard Mr Chen has confirmed there will be a Passport sequel based on the early reception of this delicious device! I have yet to read the Globe and Mail article this info apparently comes from so for now my guess this time next year we will be chatting about the next hottest Passport Device.
