The Porsche Design BlackBerry P’9981 was announced in October. This is clearly not a phone for those on a tight budget. It’s probably for those of you who think Vertu is a cool brand, but can’t really afford any of its products. Or you can, but you’re simply addicted to your BlackBerry (apparently there still are some of you like that in the world).
See, the BlackBerry P’9981 is basically just a redesigned BlackBerry Bold 9900, touchscreen and all. And it’s for the design (and the Porsche brand) that you pay a hefty premium.
The P’9981 is now available to buy in the UK at Harrods. The price being asked? £1,275. Harrods doesn’t have it on its website yet, but the retailer has told Phone Arena that the handset is up for grabs in-store. Apparently, many people are buying these. Oh, and they’re available in English and Arabic at the moment. So go grab one if you’re in that demographic.
The Porsche Design P’9981 has a 1.2 GHz single-core processor, a 2.8-inch 640×480 touchscreen, 8 GB of built-in storage, 768 MB of RAM, a 5 MP camera with 720p HD video recording support, and it runs BlackBerry OS 7. And if you’re going to buy this, none of that will matter to you.
