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.
as mentioned, under the hood, it is very a much a Z10 and therefore, you can expect it to be spec-ed with a HD+ 4.2″ touchscreen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage – expandable up to 64GB and more. and oh, another aspect that makes it stand out from the lesser Z10 is the package; out-of-the-box you will find premium stereo headset, a polish cloth, USB cable, as well as an international charging kit. all these for a smartphone world princely sum of £1,400 (about US$2,270). available from Porsche Design stores, Porsche Design web store, select carriers and retailers around the world starting from November 21, 2013. well, last checked, it is still not up on their online store yet. just thought you should know.
