Hi-res photos of the Porsche Design BlackBerry leak out
Turns out that the back plate of a possible Porsche Design BlackBerry that we showed you the other day was indeed a heads up that a previously unknown BlackBerry device is in the works.

An early prototype has been leaked out by Vietnamese Tinhte, touting a design reminiscent of the BlackBerry P'9981 – a mix of leather and aluminum. According to N44B, the device will be called BlackBerry P`9982 and will be based on the BlackBerry Z10. We're also told that the device will, once again, feature a unique UI on top of BlackBerry 10.

Availability is hinted as somewhere in the middle of 2014, with a price range of up to $2000.

Well it's not ugly I just wish Blackberry would concentrate on other areas other than luxury.

yea seems like one thing blackberry knows well is, making good quality phones. Torch, 9900, Z10, Q10 and now this.

Samsung would probably make a Mercedez inspired, Hyundai looking phone. And, if my prayers are answered, HTC would make a Koenigsegg or Supra inspired phone :'D

BB introduced this kind of design with the Z10, which came out before the HTC One!

It's gorgeous but BlackBerry needs to know that they're falling right now, they should keep concentrating and improving their smartphones instead of making luxury Porsche branded smartphones.

Htc has the ability to manufacture and sell such a beauty at a fraction of that price.

They better make the bottom same as the top, or Bentley design than Porsche.

This just out: Apple faces 5-year ban for e-book price rigging conspiracy Apple should be banned from entering anti-competitive e-book distribution contracts for five years and should end its business ties with five publishers with which it conspired to raise e-book prices, federal and state regulators said on Friday. Crooks!!!

The phone looks pretty descent. However, is this something that's really needed right now? Some might say yes and others no, I'm really not sure. Better choice than another BB7 device thought lol.

It's like a clone of an HTC One alright... except they've taken every elegeant line of the One and crapped all over it. Pretty? Pretty hideous.

BlackBerry doesn't want to make money 2grand for a phone is ridiculous. Especially when we know it'll have horrible specs. It's a overpriced htc one wanna be. Ha htc should sue for slander or pull a rotten apple move an sue.
