RIM Releases Porsche Design P'9981 Blackberry

Now we all know Porsche is known for their luxury automobiles. But what happens when Porsche and Research In Motion get together? You get the Blackberry Porsche Design P'9981. We're talking an uber, luxury smartphone that certainly is not for the masses.


This is RIM's grand foray into the world of luxury smartphones and you will not be disappointed. The Blackberry Porsche Design is made of a stainless steel frame, a hand wrapped leather back cover, a QWERTY keyboard and yes, a touch screen display. If you are having trouble putting your finger on what smartphone this Blackberry Porsche Design is modeled after look no farther than the Bold series.

If this were indeed a Porsche automobile you'd want to know top speed, fuel efficiency, horsepower and all the other technical specs and features needed before buying a car. Well, the engineers at Porsche weren't apart of the spec race, but here's what you'll find under the hood of Waterloo's new luxury device:

  • 1.2GHz processor

  • individually sculpted QWERTY keys

  • HD video recording capacity

  • 24-bit graphics

  • Blackberry 7 OS

  • 8GB storage

  • microSD card slot for up to 32GB storage

  • Near Field Communication (NFC) integration


This smartphone clearly is fully-loaded and we'd expect nothing less when you combine Research In Motion with Porsche. So where can you get one of these smartphones? Look no further than your Porsche Design store.

As mentioned, this is not a Blackberry for everyone, you'll definitely need to have money. Expect to pay about $2,000 for the RIM Porsche Design P'9981.
