Special Edition BlackBerry Bold 9980 for Porsche owners discovered

What can you say about the physical QWERTY keyboard on this thing? Looking like it belongs on a device years in the future, the metallic QWERTY appears to have a ridge on the keys to offer some type of tactile feedback. There seems to be a touchpad in the middle of the four BlackBerry buttons and the word "Proceeding" has been etched on top. The back is made of a plastic material and the pictures show the device running on China Mobile's EDGE network.
After scratching our heads all day trying to figure out just what this device could be, BlackBerryOS said that it is made by RIM and is a special edition known as the BlackBerry Bold 9980 made for Porsche owners, and code named the Knight. We actually have some video of the phone in action. What do you think of this strange BlackBerry? Let us know by simply dropping your comments in the box below!

Kudos to them for trying something new for once. Honestly, almost every single blackberry device has looked the same for many years now. I think it looks pretty cool, even better if it was running android =)

Reminds me of how Chris Bangle screwed up the design of BMW cars. The 7 series was bad. The 5 series was worse. BMW finally got rid of Bangle's crap with the release of the F10 (new 5 series). I am wondering if Bangle has moved to RIM?
