For the sophisticated executive who has everything, or the geekiest of Porsche fans, industrial design group Porsche Design together with Research In Motion (RIM), the maker of the BlackBerry smartphone, has brought out a very stylish piece of tech.
That piece of tech is the new Porsche Design P'9981 BlackBerry smartphone.
The unit should be instantly identifiable as a Porsche Design product, thanks mostly to exclusive material choices including a forged stainless steel frame, hand-wrapped leather back cover, sculpted QWERTY keyboard, and ambient touch-screen display.
Customized inside and out, the new P'9981 smartphone comes with an exclusive Porsche Design user interface and Wikitude World Browser augmented reality app experience. It also includes exclusive PINs that help easily identify another P'9981 smartphone user.
Powering the smartphone is a 1.2 GHz processor, which enables HD video recording, 24-bit high resolution graphics, and there are also advanced sensors enabling new augmented reality applications. It only comes with 8GB of on-board memory, though this is expandable up to 40GB with a micro SD card.
And so you can be sure it won’t be outdated for some time to come, the Porsche Design P'9981 also includes built-in support for NFC (Near Field Communications), which will enable many new and exciting capabilities.
If you’re interested, you’ll be able to pick one up from most Porsche Design stores later this year.
