BlackBerry will launch its bizarre–looking Passport phone next month, as details of the company's other launches also emerge online courtesy of the ailing mobile-maker’s roadmap being leaked by a fan site.

N4BB has snaffled details on all of BlackBerry’s plans for the rest of the year. As well as the Passport, codenamed Windermere, BlackBerry will launch a Porsche Design model at the same time.

The latter is billed as a ‘prestige’ device, meaning it’ll likely only end up in the hands of Championship footballers and entry–level City traders.

Both are due to land by the end of the third quarter, which falls on September 30th.

A new BB 10.3.1 software update will also herald the launch of the so–called Classic, which will offer old–school QWERTY design for those who can’t live without a physical keyboard.

Older Z30 and Q10 models appear to be heading for the exit, as BlackBerry looks to slim down the number of phones it offers.

The Canadian company is still struggling to turn around its parlous financial situation despite the appointment of a new board at the end of 2013.

Figures last week from eMarketer showed it is now lagging behind Windows Phone here in the UK, with 2.4 million users compared to 2.7 million for Microsoft’s platform.
