Porsche Design and BlackBerry Limited have joined to introduce the Porsche Design P’9983, the newest addition to the luxury smartphone range.
The luxury P’9983 smartphone combines the unique stylish design of the iconic and timeless Porsche Design brand with the fluid and effortless productivity experience of BlackBerry 10 technology.
According to Blackberry, the device integrates premium quality materials such as sapphire glass for the camera lens, forged stainless steel for the Porsche Design floating logo and chassis, and a special glass-weave technology for the back door.
Porsche Design has collaborated with BlackBerry for the first QWERTY version with BlackBerry 10 with specially crafted glass-like keys with the durability of rigid synthetic material, and a special 3D effect with silver font characters, the companies said.
“The Porsche Design P’9983 smartphone from BlackBerry makes a statement about its owner’s impeccable taste and drive for achievement and success, as well as discernment in making the right choices with products that help them stay on top,” says Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group. “Yet again, the collaboration with BlackBerry has led to a product that blends style and functionality to provide a true luxury experience.”
“Today we mark yet another milestone in delivering an experience that goes beyond luxury,” said Ron Louks, President, Devices and Emerging Solutions at BlackBerry. “The first QWERTY Porsche Design smartphone with BlackBerry 10 experience combines superior productivity, ultimate security and privacy and the performance of the best professional tool with the opportunity to express individual style with the luxury of being one step ahead.”
The device comes in Yellow, Blue Green, Dark Brown, Pomegranate, Paloma Grey, Salsa, Blue and Orange colours.
The Porsche Design P’9983 smartphone from BlackBerry will be available from Porsche Design stores, select carriers and retailers around the world by the beginning of October 2014, according to the makers.
