    Taken from the article CONFIRMED: This is the BlackBerry Passport in White | Inside BlackBerry.

    Q: What inspired the look, feel and materials of the white Passport?

    Paschke: The rear cover uses a porcelain feel coating that is smooth to the touch while providing grip and complementing the soft touch coating used on the black Passport. So they work as a family.

    Hofer: In fact, all of the surfaces for both the black and white Passport have been gently softened for comfort while maintaining a modern look. The finish along with the smooth shaping creates a refined experience.


    So from what I take from this is, the Passport rear cover is going to be a smooth/soft finish like we have seen in some of the latest photo's. It is not going to have a glass weave or leather as some were hoping.

    Saw this earlier and was disappointed. Really hoped for leather.

    Well, I would rather it be like the Q10, or leather... but as long as it exudes the feel of luxury I'll be happy. It had just better not feel cheap & plasticky like most droids or I'll be a saaaaaad panda

    Aww man I love the faux leather. Gives it a luxury feel I thought, didn't seem cheap. I even still keep my 9000 around to feel it

    Good news. Glass weave looks cheap.

    I agree with this. People love the glass weave for some reason, but it looks cheap and tacky in my opinion.

    Samsung Note 3 also has the cam in the middle... The BB-Passport will be a very good device!

    Have you seen/touched the new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite?? Hmmm... The only negative thing... You leave fingerprints on it! (comparable to the Playbook naked... so that's why my PB got a case!)

    Hmm black or white? I've always had black BlackBerry's until my white Z30. The white and silver work for me on the Z30. The white and stainless steel look great on the Passport!
