Amazon’s quarterly financial report and although the Canadian manufacturer’s performance in the first quarter of the year didn’t meet estimates, it seems like the company is still clinging on by announcing three new devices scheduled to arrive by fiscal year 2015.

The first two devices are typical BlackBerry designs. First there’s the BlackBerry Z3 which went on pre-order last April. The phone will feature a 5-inch display, a dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a 5MP+1.1MP camera combo. There’s also the BlackBerry Classic which will most likely replace the Q10 with its QWERTY keyboard.

But the most interesting handset among the three would have to be the Passport. Unlike other handsets made by BlackBerry in the past, the Passport is said to have a square form factor and a capacitive keyboard. The screen size is at 4.5-inches with a resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels and a screen density of 452ppi.

The capacitive keyboard is also expected to work as a gesture pad. In terms of computing power, the phone will reportedly have a quad-core CPU, Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Power will be supplied by a 3450mAh battery.
