I've been scouring the internet looking for the best Black Friday smartphone deals and was pleased to find the BlackBerry Passport promo that gives you a whopping $200 off this SIM-unlocked, no-contract smartphone.

From now until 30 November you can pick up a BlackBerry Passport, check out my review of this superb phone I rated 9.5/10, for just $499 from the ShopBlackBerry and Amazon websites. When you consider that the lowest capacity (16GB) Apple iPhone 6 starts at $649, this $499 BlackBerry Passport really is a great deal.

As I mentioned in my review, the BlackBerry Passport has nearly all of the highest specifications available on smartphones today. The unified communications experience is fantastic, the large square display helps you work more efficiently, it has the best hardware QWERTY ever, the battery lasts forever, and app gaps in BlackBerry 10 are filled by Android through the Amazon Appstore and Google Play Store.

BlackBerry's Black Friday promo also includes a low-cost offer for the BlackBerry Z30 , just in case you want a great smartphone without a QWERTY keyboard. The Z30 is available for just $225, that's a $275 savings!

In partnership with PayPal, you can also purchase one of these devices and pay it off over the next six months interest-free.
