The BlackBerry Porsche Design has finally reached our shores. The BlackBerry Porsche Design offers a unique radical design that sets you apart from the typical BlackBerry Bold devices. The exclusivity comes with a price of RM6,388 which gives you BlackBerry Bold 9900 hardware covered with stainless steel and leather.
To recap on the specs, it runs on a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, 2.8″ VGA display & comes with a 5MP camera capable of shooting 720p HD video. According to Lowyat.Net, the device will also be offered on contract via Maxis.
Obviously this isn’t for the everyday mainstream user. However it might be something worth considering if money is no object for the sake of being different. Speaking of being different, the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 comes with an exclusive BlackBerry Pin that starts with 2AA.
Head after the break for the promo video.
If you’re using a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, 8.9, 7.0 Plus or 7.7, your upgrade away from Android 3.2 Honeycomb to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is coming real soon. According to Sammobile, Samsung will be rolling out Android 4.0 ICS update for the following tablet models beginning July onwards:
GT-P6210 Galaxy Tab 7.0 PLUS WIFI
GT-P6200 Galaxy Tab 7.0 PLUS WIFI + 3G
GT-P6810 Galaxy Tab 7.7 WIFI
GT-P6800 Galaxy Tab 7.7 WIFI + 3G
GT-P7310 Galaxy Tab 8.9 WIFI
GT-P7300 Galaxy Tab 8.9 WIFI + 3G
GT-P7510 Galaxy Tab 10.1 WIFI
GT-P7500 Galaxy Tab 10.1 WIFI + 3G
With the recent release of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1 that runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with similar hardware, there’s no reason why Samsung would defer such update on its current models. The roll out is said to be starting in July with majority of units receiving the updates by August 2012.

Motorola Mobility today announced the latest addition to the RAZR line-up for South East Asia. Powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor packed in a decently thin 8.35mm body, the Motorola RAZR V is designed to combine value, performance and style in one.
The RAZR V features a 4.3-inch Gorilla Glass display that is enhanced with Motorola’s ColorBoost display technology. In addition, the RAZR V runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box and features a backplate that is completely covered with Kevlar.
Other than that, we don’t have much detail on the full specifications of the device. We’ll have to wait till closer to the launch date for more info. In terms of pricing, the RAZR V will be the most affordable Android-based RAZR in the market, so it should be cheaper than the RAZR MAXX that currently retails for RM1,688. Release date is slated for Q3 but not firm date has been set.
Despite being the budget device of the bunch, it’s good to see that Motorola has not taken any of the stylish elements of the RAZR away from the RAZR V. We’re still firm that the RAZR is the most stylish Android devices in the market right now and the RAZR V looks to follow that trend. In addition, the affordable pricing could possibly make this new RAZR the most desirable in the lineup.
