BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 now available in Canada
The futuristic looking BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 is now available in Canada. During the opening of a new Porsche Design store in Yorkville, Toronto, RIM CEO Thorsten Heins and Porsche Design Groups Juergen Gessler appeared to introduce the handset. Priced at $1890, this is not a phone for the masses. That can be determined right away from the choice of materials used to build it. The BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 is constructed from forged stainless steel frame, hand-wrapped leather back cover, and offers a sculpted QWERTY keyboard and a crystal touch display. The phone uses a unique Porsche UI.

The BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 is equipped with a 2.8 inch capacitive touchscreen, with resolution of 480 x 640 and pixel density of 286ppi. A single-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 (there's a chip from the past) is under the hood and 768MB of RAM are on board. Native storage of 8 GB can be expanded to as much as 40GB using a microSD card. The 5MP camera has LED flash and captures video at 720p.

So just exactly what are you spending nearly two grand on? A large chunk of that is for the Porsche name while more of it goes for the uniqueness of the device. BlackBerry 7 OS is installed which means that it is not getting upgraded to BlackBerry 10 OS. Don't expect to see many of these in use at the food court in the mall.source:Crackberry
