BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 Black: yours for £1,390 at Harrods

BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 Black: yours for £1,390 at HarrodsIf you’re looking at that headline and thinking: ‘That name sounds helluva familiar,’ that’s because we were jawing about the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 this time last year.

Can you guess what’s different about the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 Black? That’s right; it’s, er, black. And like its older, titanium brother, it costs a bloomin’ fortune.

The Porsche Design BlackBerry P'9981 Black touches down at Harrods on January 2, with a price tag of £1,390. Good lord.

You might recall the The Porsche Design BlackBerry P'9981 was essentially a BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 in Porsche clothing. It’s the same story again with the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 Black.

As such, BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 Black specs include a 2.8in display above a full QWERTY, 5MP rear camera, 1.2GHz processor, and 8GB internal storage (with microSD support).

"Our very first product was a completely black watch. It was a revolutionary product at the time and proved to be a great talking point all over the world," yells Jürgen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group. "As is typical of Porsche Design, the choice of black had a functional significance.”

So, who’s getting one?

Looks less ugly than the aluminium one in the link from last year. Given that it's of such functional significance it's a wonder that they couldn't think of it last year...
