Porsche finds top gear with BlackBerry design

Custom RIM job

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

RIM gave BlackBerry a lap of honour this week, announcing the speedy arrival of a smartphone crafted collaboratively with Porsche Design.

The BlackBerry P'9981, officially unveiled in Dubai today, rocks up looking rather edgy, with a brushed stainless steel casing and leather back panel.

The P'9981 resembles a luxury version of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and runs BlackBerry 7 OS on a 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of Ram. There's also a 5Mp camera, NFC capabilities and 8GB of internal storage which, as usual, can be expanded with Micro SD cards.

The P'9981 sports tweaks to its software, including a custom Porsche font and redesigned icons. Va va voom.

The Porsche Design BlackBerry P'9981 will be available in limited quantities before the end of 2011, RIM said, with prices expected to hit quadruple figures.

Not one for the shallow pocketed then, although those with the keys to a 911 are unlikely to bat an eyelid. ®
