BlackBerry said to be prepping a 'refreshed' Porsche Design P'9982
Just before BlackBerry launched its new business-centric monster, the BlackBerry Passport, the company released the Porsche Design P'9983. The high-end device (and priced at $2000, we do mean HIGH-end) is the third phone in the series. These handsets are not made for your average smartphone user. In fact, they aren't even made for smartphone fanatics. The Porsche Design phones are designed for those who practice conspicuous consumption.

On a relatively quiet Sunday afternoon, there is some speculation that BlackBerry is working on a 'refreshed' version of the older Porsche Design P'9982. The phone was based on the BlackBerry Z10, which was the first all-touch 'Berry to run BlackBerry 10.

The refreshed P'9982 will be available in black on black, similar to what was available for the Porsche Design P'9981, early next month. In the middle of next month, more color options (black on cognac/red/aquagreen) will be available. No change with the pricing however, as the phone will still remain priced at around the $2000 mark.

Besides the new color options, the 'refreshed' P'9982 could run on BlackBerry 10.3, which includes BlackBerry Assistant. That is the manufacturer's virtual personal assistant in the same vein as Siri, Cortana and Google Now.
