Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry does itself up but fails to impressby Gareth Mankoo
Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry is one of those rare phones from BlackBerry that has won our heart for awesome design, alone. It packs an impressive stainless steel frame, a hand-wrapped leather back cover, a beautiful QWERTY key pad, a crystal clear touch display, Porsche Design UI, and Wiktitude World Browser. Inside, you will find a 1.2GHz processor, an NFC module that’s built in, HD video capture, BlackBerry OS 7, Liquid Graphics to make it all seem surreal, and a microSD expansion slot.
The Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry will be a pretty expensive affair, at $2000. Are there any technology marvels inside? Not many for which we would pay that much for.
