AT&T will begin selling the two devices starting this week, on February 20th, both with contract and without. Both can also be financed through the AT&T Next program. The carrier says the Passport will sell for $200 with contract or $650 without, guaranteeing no one will purchase it, while the Classic will sell for $50 on contract and $420 without.
Interestingly, the carrier model of the Passport has rounded edges compared to the sharp edged model that is currently sold direct from BlackBerry and on Amazon. The Classic is exactly the same inside and out as current models being sold.
The Passport will be an AT&T exclusive, while the Classic will be temporarily an exclusive before it heads to Verizon later this year.
