Porsche Design P’9982 BlackBerry

by now, everyone knows where BlackBerry stands in the smartphone market and we would imagine many individuals and companies would already steer clear of the ailing fruit. after all, there is nothing Blackberry can do that a regular smartphone can’t. however, if you are undaunted and still love BlackBerry 10 OS wholeheartedly, then you might as well get one that’s on the top of the food chain and that’s the Porsche Design P’9982 BlackBerry. not to be confused with the P’9981 two years ago (and more recently, the Gold rendition), the P’9882 is essentially the Z10 running on a customized version of the BlackBerry 10.2 OS and of course, a luxe up aesthetic by the way of satin finished stainless steel frame, hand-wrapped in genuine Italian leather. btw, the latter is croc’s leather that we are talking about.

if you don’t mind an “aged OS”, the Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry Gold might be a good fit for those seeking a perfect balance between three things: opulence, functionality, and design. the Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry Gold is essentially the Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry introduced back in 2011 coated in a luxurious layer of 24-carat gold. complementing the blinged front is a back clad in leather and a solid gold block with the handset number engraved on it. speaking of handset number, the Gold edition is even more exclusive with just 25 units to go around, and hence the numbering. beneath the thin layer of gold is a stainless steel construction with titanium coating.

is the ‘serious’ look of a Blackberry device stopping you from picking one up? then you might be interested to know that Blackberry is not all about suit and tie, the new Blackberry Q5 QWERTY Smartphone proves that point. geared towards “youthful fans that are passionate, confident and bold”, the Q5 features both the Canadian firm’s signature QWERTY keyboard and a 3.1″ touchscreen. specifics such as resolution aren’t available, in fact, what goes under the hood is pretty much shrouded at this point. slated to be available this July to select markets in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America, the new Q5 is powered by Blackberry 10 operating system and features Blackberry Time Shift mode and Story Maker for creating “picture perfect” shots (so it does have camera) and weaving them into a movie, complete with music.

BlackBerry Z10 LTE-enabled Smartphones

will a fully touchscreen smartphone be the saving grace of the ailing BlackBerry (formally, Research In Motion)? perhaps. after much anticipation (or lack thereof), BlackBerry has finally unveiled its latest OS, the BlackBerry 10 and along with it, a pair of new LTE-enabled handsets – the BlackBerry Z10 & Q10 LTE-enabled Smartphones. though it is worthy to note that the keyboard-equipped Q10 will not surface till April. the Z10, on the other hand, is almost immediately available to various markets, including the UK, Canada and UAE.

somehow i have this feeling that RIM aren’t quite sure what to serve up to the market, therefore it keeps hitting the market with new handset from the same series. no? then why did it announce the Bold 9790 and Curve 9380 Smartphones just months after the announcement of Bold 9900/30 and the Curve trio? haven’t BlackBerry users have enough to choose from already? apparently not. anyway, i don’t even want to begin to detail the difference between them. the BlackBerry Bold 9790 here takes on the more traditional route with the combination of a 2.45-inch high resolution touchscreen display (480 x 360 pixels at 246ppi) with a tactile keyboard, along with a optical trackpad. running on the latest BlackBerry 7 OS, the 9790 is powered by a 1 GHz processor that promised to deliver “fast, smooth performance for browsing the web, running apps, working with documents, and enjoying multimedia.” it has a 8GB onboard storage that’s expandable up to 32GB via a memory card slot.
