Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry Smartphone

Remember the odd BlackBerry video from China a few weeks ago? There was a lot of speculation, what BlackBerry it was and if it was a genuine BlackBerry at all. But it turns out to be a true BlackBerry, designed by Porsche Design. The Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry falls in the group of luxury designs, which seem more and more common. The standard design for BlackBerrys just don’t cut it anymore.

The Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry is a BlackBerry OS 7 device with top notch hardware commonly found in all OS 7 devices. The usual 1.2 GHz processor is used to power the Porsche, similar to all other OS 7 devices. In fact the only question for a customer is, whether he/she likes the Porsche or not. It’s totally a question of taste and visual appeal. Are you going to buy this luxury phone? It looks okay to me, but I’m familiar with Porsche Design price levels, so I better stick to my normal BlackBerry for now.

BlackBerry Torch 9860 Review

What once began with the BlackBerry Storm has now evolved into the BlackBerry Torch 9860. The old SurePress technology is gone and now a capacitive touch screen makes input easy. The release of the BlackBerry Torch 9860 already happened in late August and depending on which country you are located at, you most probably can already buy a 9860.

Without further ado, let’s jump right into the review.

New PlayBook competitor costs $61

Today the cheapest tablet computer ever has been announced. The Ubislate, also known as Aakash. In terms of price it beats anything on the market, costing only $61.

BlackBerry Curve 9360 White and Pink

Attention! Attention! A BlackBerry Curve 9360 white is on its way, alongside another Curve 9360 pink! We’re really getting nervous about their release date, but still can’t find it on any mobile phone retailer’s website. Telus Canada has confirmed it will have these colorful phones at some point, but others will follow soon I guess.

The Curve is definitely a stylish phone, but making it white or pink is even better compared to the usual boring black. The price is expected to be equal to the black ones. Thank you RIM!

BlackBerry Curve 9380 Preview

BGR released the first clear photos of the BlackBerry Curve 9380 (left) next to a BlackBerry Torch (right)

The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is not yet available, in fact little has been revealed about this mysterious device so far, but over the last weeks and months new details surfaced regularly. This might be a hint, that the release date of the Blackberry Curve 9380 is near, probably before Christmas. At the BlackBerryInsight office we are already excited to get hold of this baby and in preparation for the upcoming phone we have collected all the information available and put it into one article.

First of all, when I hear “Curve”, I’m thinking of a Blackberry with a physical Keyboard. However, the BlackBerry Curve 9380 features a virtual keyboard, which I think is odd. I will get into the technical details in a moment, but first you can check out this (silent) video showing the new all-touch Curve:
