BlackBerry will be displaying its newly released Passport at GITEX.

Canadian smartphone pioneer BlackBerry has announced it feature its latest handsets, including the recently launched Passport, at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK 2014.

In the past few months BlackBerry has launched a number of devices. The touch-enabled Z3 will be on display as well as the luxury Porsche Design P’9983. But arguably BlackBerry’s most attention-grabbing handset this year will be the Passport, which bears a large square touch screen and QWERTY touch-enabled keyboard and is purpose-built for productivity-driven business professionals, according to a statement from BlackBerry.

At GITEX BlackBerry will also be facilitating hands-on demos of its latest BlackBerry 10.3 operating system and BlackBerry Blend. The company will also be talking heavily about enterprise mobility management and security, with an emphasis on trends, myths and BYOD (bring your own device) or COPE (company-issued, personally enabled) strategy.

BlackBerry will exhibit from Hall 6, Stand MAC6-7.
