BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 gets a tear down courtesy of the FCC
The outside of the U.S. version looks to be the same as the international release apart from the word “proceeding” engraved into the front above the display where typically it says “Porsche Design.” Also on the back plate where it typically says “P’9981”, it appears that it has been edited out, leaving just a gray plate. We assume that is just for the FCC’s prototype and the actual release will have the proper branding.
Without further ado, the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 FCC photos:

$1700??? *trollface* I wonder who the hell would pay that much for a phone, unless they've got a matching vehicle, or can easily buy a $500 clock widget lol

Very ugly and very overpriced. A person has to be crazy to even buy a phone with such outdated technology compared to what's currently on the phone market. I still wouldn't be surprised if someone actually did buy such a phone.

Add 1,5 dual-core processor, 8Mp camera full HD video, 720P screen, Dual flash or Flash Xenon, Touch screen and reduce that price then it will be perfect. 1700 USD with these poor specs no way, 650 bucks unlocked is fair
