How much with the BlackBerry Passport cost around the world?

Today's the launch of the BlackBerry Passport, and the new square BlackBerry now has pricing for its international launch markets. BlackBerry already already revealed that the phone will launch at $599, and it is indeed available from the BlackBerry Store at that price (which is stated to be a $100 discount). But how much outside of the US, where the Passport doesn't even have a carrier partner?
