The white variant of the BlackBerry Passport can now be pre-ordered in the UKBlackBerry blog

The white variant of the BlackBerry Passport has reached UK shores. The high-end smartphone is now available on pre-order in the UK.

Touted across media circles as one of the Ontario headquartered company's most intuitive smartphones, the White BlackBerry Passport will also be available in retail stores from 8 December.

Where to pre-order from?

If you live in the UK and want the white variant of the BlackBerry Passport, then head over to Clove which is accepting pre-orders.

Clove has priced the White BlackBerry Passport at £485 ($760) and you can pre-order the 32GB variant of the smartphone.

The latest BlackBerry offering will be available in retail stores in the UK from 8 December.

"To date it has been available only in black, but we are pleased to confirm that as of week commencing 8 December, we will have the Passport in white as well," Clove stated in an official blog post.

Considering the fact that BlackBerry's Passport had generated user interest even before its official release, prospective buyers of the white variant could reserve a unit, as it is likely to be a sell-out when it is released in retail stores.

However, the conventional BlackBerry Passport is also available across Clove for £485 (32GB variant offered for sale).
