Porsche Design P'9983 now official, comes with BlackBerry 10.3 and BlackBerry Assistant
On Wednesday, BlackBerry announced the Porsche Design P'9983. The phone beat out the BlackBerry Passport to become the first 'Berry handset to be powered by BlackBerry 10.3. The phone offers a 3.1 inch SuperAMOLED screen with resolution of 720 x 720. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 processor. 2GB of RAM is on board with 64GB of native storage and a 128GB capacity microSD slot. Back and front facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 2MP, respectively. Powering the device is a 2100mAh battery. The phone comes with Bluetooth and NFC connectivity.

BlackBerry Assistant makes its debut with the phone. Like a real life personal assistant, the application helps you respond to emails and texts, schedule a meeting and get directions. BlackBerry Assistant also responds to you based on your location. And if you're using Bluetooth, the application assumes that you can't look at the screen and interacts with you, hands and eyes free. Owners of the Porsche Design phones get a special PIN number so that BBM members know that they are in touch with someone who can afford to pay $2000 for a Porsche Design handset.

The BlackBerry QWERTY that is on the P'9983 is equipped with auto-correction, and also suggests the next word to type. BBM Video lets you video chat with other members of the messaging app, while BlackBerry Natural Sound technology makes BBM Voice sound great. And the revamped BlackBerry 10 Browser allows pages to render quickly.
