BlackBerry already planning Passport successor and MWC concept device

BlackBerryHaving announced earlier today that the BlackBerry Passport has already sold in excess of 200,000 units, BlackBerry CEO John Chen has already green lit some new device projects. According to The Globe and Mail Technology Editor Shane Dingman, the company has at least two new devices in the works.

It appears that BlackBerry CEO John Chen is pleased enough with early BlackBerry Passport sales that a second generation device will be developed. No other details about this BlackBerry Passport successor were provided but we may see it sometime in the second half of 2015.

He also confirmed that the company will unveil a new BlackBerry device concept at Mobile World Congress in February 2015. Again, no details were provided. Could it be based on the patents that BlackBerry recently filed for a device with a flipout keyboard?

In the meantime, BlackBerry will launch the BlackBerry Classic in November. It could also launch the BlackBerry Z3 LTE (perhaps as the BlackBerry Z20) before the end of the year.

While BlackBerry does not expect to reach financial break even until the end of the year, it certainly appears that a turnaround is well and truly underway.
