Blackberry Motion Now Official: IP67 Rating, 4000mAh Battery

It also introduces a new Blackberry feature

After being leaked by Evan Blass a few days ago, Blackberry has made the Motion official during GITEX Technology Week in Dubai. As confirmed, the Motion does not sport a keyboard. Instead, it is an “all touch” Blackberry sporting an IP67 rating and the biggest battery in a Blackberry device at 4000mAh.

New to the Motion is Locker Mode: A feature that lets users store documents and images in the phone’s internal memory requiring either a PIN or a fingerprint scan. With Locker mode, files are securely stored on the phone and not in the cloud.
