BlackBerry Passport hits Rogers and Bell priced at $249.99 and $299.95 on contract

The BlackBerry Passport’s brief period of TELUS exclusivity has come to an end. Waterloo’s newest smartphone is now available through Rogers and Bell starting today.

Bell and Rogers both confirmed plans to carry the Passport last week with pricing on a two-year contract set at $299.95 with Bell or $249.99 for Rogers. Rogers has the Passport available month-to-month for $699.99, while Bell is asking for a little more with its $749.95 price tag. The Passport is, of course, still available through TELUS for $250 on contract or $750 no term.

Officially launched last week, the BlackBerry Passport boasts a 4.5-inch 1440 x 1440 display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, a non-removable 3450 mAh battery, and, most importantly, a newly designed hardware keyboard.
