BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 Review

21 May 2012
  • Excerpt: It's hard not to feel like "the man" walking around with the P'9981. Most people have never seen one in real life. Take it out in public and people notice it. Those who recognize it and know of the Porsche BlackBerry look at you in awe (or like you're crazy to spend $2k on a phone).
  • Pros: You feel like the man walking around with a $2,000 phone, It's a conversation starter. This phone gets noticed, Awesome packaging - it's like opening a luxury watch box, Great accessories included - best charging stand ever, branded battery and cleaning cloth a nice touch, The exclusive 2AA PIN i...
  • Cons: It's really expensive, and despite the increased price isn't really better than the Bold 9900, Software updates lag that of the Bold 9900 - they'll come, but it's still on OS 7.0, No autofocus on the camera, Uneven keyboard back lighting feels a bit sloppy, Exposed edges on call and hang up keys ...

Mobile Review
18 May 2012
  • Summary: There are absolutely no software differences between this handset and the regular Bold 9900. This is exactly the same model, which is why I don't want to repeat anything. If you wish to learn any details on the handset specifications and software, welcome back to the Bold 9900 review.

BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 Review

14 February 2012
  • Conclusion: It's hard to imagine the Porsche Design P'9981 convincing the everyman: its severe styling is too divisive, BlackBerry 7 OS questionable, and general specifications uncompetitive in places. Then again, the everyman isn't the limited edition BlackBerry's target audience.

Porsche Design P'9981 BlackBerry review

13 February 2012
  • Excerpt: 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 combination failed to spark imaginations or stem the tide of dissatisfied BlackBerry customers upgrading...
  • Pros: Great way to demonstrate that you're wealthy, Responsive UI, Quick camera operation
  • Cons: Outdated OS, Exorbitant price, Worse design than the Bold 9900

BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 Available Now

23 December 2011
  • Summary: Overall: A very, very decent BlackBerry product for those who like the brand and a QWERTY keyboard. Is it worth the price? Well, only the fans can determine that, and according to early sales figures, if you have the money to spend on it, it’s worth it.

RIM’s Porsche Design Blackberry P9981 – a sleek, luxury smartphone for the 1%

31 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Overall, the Porsche Design Blackberry P9981 is not impressive at all – all you’re getting is a unique looking Bold 9900 (which already has a very sturdy housing) and bragging rights, but then again, if all your friends have a Galaxy S2 or an unusable Vertu phone, you need to somehow stand out,...

10 July 2012
  • Summary: For all the claims that RIM is dead, they still have a stronghold on the corporate sector. So how do you create a product for the discerning CEO and set it apart from the millions of other BlackBerry devices out there ?
  • Pros: High end materials, Unique
  • Cons: Price, No BB10 upgrade path

How To Spend It
31 May 2012
  • Summary: I’m slightly prejudiced against companies that put their name to a wildly diverse range of products; they seem to lose integrity by overexposing themselves. I have to say, however, that this new Porsche Design take on the BlackBerry makes it a worthy opponent in aesthetic terms to both the iPhone...
