BlackBerry is preparing to release what may be its weirdest smartphone ever. This year it's already launched the Z3, and soon that will be joined by the BlackBerry Classic - an obvious throwback to the company's glory days. But there's another product making its way through the pipeline as well, and it's a lot more blocky. BlackBerry is calling its third phone planned for fiscal year 2015 the Passport. We've never seen anything quite like it, and we'll let you decide whether that's a good or bad thing.

You know what? I kind of like this thing. It's crazy, unconventional, and it certainly has charm. I'm very curious if I will ever manage to get to handle one - I have yet to even see a BlackBerry 10 device to begin with, sadly.

That thing has zero appeal to me. I sure wouldn't want to hold a big square thing up to my head.

When the first Galaxy Note came out, a good friend got one on launch day. Everyone kept asking her why she was talking on an iPad. It wasn't long before she got a Bluetooth headset for it.

I would imagine the Passport would look even more awkward, even in this age of 6" and larger phones.
