BlackBerry definitely isn't dead...yet. The company has announced the P’9982 Porsche Design smartphone.
It's a premium device designed by the Porsche Design, the team behind some of the most luxurious products on the market.
BlackBerry certainly spared no effort to make it as quality as possible. The smartphone's casing is made of stainless steel and back cover is coated in real leather available in three colours. Unfortunately, internals of the P’9982 Porsche Design aren't on par with its looks. It is equipped with a 4.2-inch display (1280×768 pixels), dual-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 64GB of storage, 8 MP shooter on the back, 2 MP front facing camera, GPS, NFC, microHDMI, support for LTE and a 1800 mAh battery.
Its software, BlackBerry 10 operating system with a custom user interface, cannot compete with iOS and Android. Due to decreasing popularity of BlackBerry products, developers are not interested in making apps for it. As a result, BlackBerry 10 lacks many applications that are popular on other platforms.
If you don't mind it and want a truly rare smartphone, BlackBery P’9982 Porsche Design is your best choice. There are only 500 units available globally and each of them has a unique PIN code that will differentiate it from other BlackBerry phones. Exclusivity comes at a price, though. The Blackberry P’9982 Porsche Design costs £1,500. It will be available from Porsche Design stores, select carriers and retailers on November 21. Additionally, BlackBerry is going to launch a limited Crocodile edition in early December.
