The Porsche Design BlackBerry has finally been revealed as the Porsche Design P’9981 Smart phone. This is an exclusive BlackBerry with its exterior radically styled with stainless steel and leather.
Internally its rather similar with its flagship BlackBerry Bold 9900 that comes with a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 2.8″ VGA display and a 5MP camera capable of shooting 720p HD videos. The difference lies on the exterior as the Porsche P9981 is slightly wider by 1 mm and thicker by 0.8mm compared to the Bold 9900. The premium materials add 25 gram extra, making it a total of 155 grams.
Being a premium device, the P’9981 features an exclusive BlackBerry PIN with a “2AA” prefix. In terms of price, it is rumoured to be $2,000. That’s in USD, which makes it slightly more than RM6,000. That’s a lot to pay for a blinged up BlackBerry Bold 9900.
