We have been following the beautification process of the BlackBerry Passport closely, starting from last year’s gold-plating job by a Vietnamese company, and the official Canadian gold version from only a few days ago. The company has been quick to ship the Limited Edition 50 pieces and they have started showing up at people’s doorsteps.
The live images come from anonymous owner 30/50, and unsurprisingly confirm the gold details in BlackBerry’s press release. The Limited Edition and serial number engraving are the only design elements on the gold frame for a stylish, restrained overall look. The posh leather back has been left out of the photoshoot, unfortunately.

It would also appear that the whole lot was manufactured in Canada. The Limited Edition sold out almost instantly, and is now altogether absent form the BlackBerry online store.
