So, I stole the above photograph from Gbenro who got the opportunity to have a BlackBerry 7290 and the 2014 Passport side by side. Someone walked into his office to complain that his BlackBerry isn’t working and produced the 7290. Odd that someone still uses a 7290 in 2014.
Look how far we have come. It is a 2004 device (10 years old!) with a 2.6-inch display, 32 MB internal storage, no card slot, and 4 MB RAM. Feel free to compare that with the Passport’s specs.
Classic photograph, if you ask me.
