BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 luxury smartphone announced by RIM

Research in Motion and Porsche have officially unveiled the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981, a new luxury smartphone that was first seen a few months ago.

The Porsche Design P’9981 runs BlackBerry OS 7 with an “exclusive Porsche Design UI”, and is 11.3mm thin. It’s build from a forged stainless steel frame, and has a “sculpted QWERTY keyboard”, in addition to a hand-wrapped leather back cover.

Other features include a 2.8 inch VGA touchscreen display, HSDPA, NFC, Wi-Fi, GPS, Wikitude World Browser augmented reality app, 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording, 768MB of RAM, 1.2GHz single-core processor, 8GB of internal memory, and “exclusive PINs that help easily identify another P’9981 smartphone user.”

The BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 will be available in Porsche Design stores around the world sometime later this year. There’s no word on the smartphone’s price yet.

It isn’t the first time Porsche ventures into the mobile phone world – the company has also worked with Sagem to make that Porsche Design P’9522 candybar back in 2008.
