Blackberry Ltd.'s unconventional square-screened smartphone, the Passport, earned mixed reviews at its launch Wednesday as the company's turnaround push moved into a critical phase in which it must prove its handsets are still desirable.Blackberry showed off the new device at events in Toronto, London and Dubai. The smartphone, which has a large touchscreen and a modified version of the company's well-known keyboard, comes to market as the phones of Blackberry's rivals all converge on a tall, rectangular profile. After recently concluding a three-year restructuring process, Blackberry and its chief executive, John Chen, now must prove the company's new devices and services can generate sustainable revenue and profit.Chen said in April Blackberry's handset unit could return to profit on sales of as few as 10 million devices a year.The BES 12 platform, due out next month, will allow large companies and government agencies to manage Windows-based devices and more easily administer Android and iOS devices alongside their Blackberry fleet.
