RIM and Porsche bring the P’9981


RIM and Porsche have revealed a stunning new phone, which might not re-establish RIM as a frontrunner in smartphone manufacturers, but will certainly turn heads and create fans for those who love high-end phones.

The new Blackberry P’9981 is a special edition model, and when it launches later this year, you’ll be able to pick one up at a Porsche Design store.

The device has a 1.2GHz processor and 8GB of memory. It is capable of capturing video in HD and runs BlackBerry OS 7. Other features include premium and exclusive BB PINs that help users identify each other more easily. Also, it will have a Porsche inspired user interface.

The P’9981 is made of forged stainless steel, and on the back is a hand-wrapped leather cover. The screen is described as being a “crystal clear touch display”.

Regarding price, it’s rumored that it will go for around $2,000.
