BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981

 

The perfect accompaniment to your Porsche car or an overpriced folly? We found out.

Genuinely standout design, Very well built, Superb keyboard

Trails the competition on almost all technical fronts, BlackBerry OS 7.0 is nice but limited, App selection not good enough, Is ultimately way overpriced

BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981

 

There are enough high-profile fans of the BlackBerry to make something like this Porsche Design special edition make sense. From celebrities to CEOs, the BlackBerry still has quite a hold on people as a great communicator, whether for business or...

Stand out in a crowd, keyboard is still great, good communicator, high-resolution display, dock

Price, theme makes the app icons a little more difficult to determine, BB 7 OS isn't as dynamic as rivals, back cover comes off too easily

It might sound like we've been rather harsh here, but there's no escaping the fact that the P'9981, Porsche Design or not, it still a BlackBerry at its core. Where it excels with communication features, it lacks with entertainment refinement. Whilst...

£2000, that's the amount of pocket money you'll have to have saved up to afford the beauty that is the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 smartphone.

Blackberry Porsche Design P9981

 

The control keys are of the same type. The blocking/unblocking button is on the upper end. On the left side there is a 3.5-mm headset jack and a microUSB jack. The volume controls and the camera button are on the right side. The camera itself and an...

Classy industrial design, distinctive from other BlackBerrys, top of the line email, great social integration

Price, minor performance lags, mediocre camera

BlackBerry P'9981 Review

 

A good phone, if you're prepared to pay over the top for the Porsche designer tag

Stylish, industrial looks; great email; excellent social networking integration

Expensive; some lags evident, very average snapper

This is not the first time designer labels have appeared on smartphones – Ferrari, Prada and Armani have all tried their hand at mobile handsets – but Porsche has managed to hit what would be its target audience, by choosing to give a BlackBerry the...

BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 review

 

Research in Motion, regardless of how you may view its recent history or its long-term future, still has a stronghold on the corporate world. Its lineup

Made with high-quality materials ; Offers same performance as Bold 9900 ; Above average battery life

Functionality doesn't justify the cost ; Keyboard isn't as easy to use as Bold 9900 ; No improvement in components

The P'9981 is little more than a luxury BlackBerry Bold 9900, and will appeal only to a select few.

Porsche Design P'9981 BlackBerry review

 

Last summer, RIM introduced the world to the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and BlackBerry 7 operating system. In spite of adding a faster processor, slimmer profile, and the nebulous Liquid Graphics, that...

Great way to demonstrate that you're wealthy ; Responsive UI ; Quick camera operation

Outdated OS ; Exorbitant price ; Worse design than the Bold 9900

Maybe if you knocked a zero off its price tag, the existence of this phone might have been justifiable
