BlackBerry and Porsche Show Off Luxury Smartphones

BlackBerry has announced a new limited edition smartphone as part of a design tie-in with the Porsche sports car.

The Porsche Design P’9982 Smartphone from BlackBerry and a second Crocodile model will be limited to just 500 devices worldwide and come with a customized version of the BlackBerry 10.2 Operating System.

The P’9982, which extends the Porsche Design luxury brand’s range of modern luxury smartphones, features a satin finished frame forged from stainless steel, complemented by a hand-wrapped Italian leather back door. The back door of the limited edition model is hand-wrapped in genuine Crocodile leather.

“Engineered Luxury meets Powered Performance – what has been true for the first Porsche Design smartphone is even truer for the all-touch P’9882,” says Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group.

The Porsche Design P’9982 smartphone from BlackBerry will be available from Porsche Design stores, select carriers and retailers around the world beginning on November 21 with the exclusive retail launch at Harrods, Knightsbridge, London.

The limited Crocodile edition will be available beginning early December, and will be exclusive to the Porsche Design shop-in-shop at Harrods.
