Porsche Design BlackBerry 10 device reveals more of itself in new photosAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Well, that didn't take long. Just a few days after images of what was thought to be parts of a Porsche Design BlackBerry 10 unit made their way online, some new images that show off the device in its entirety have leaked out.
Posted by Vietnamese site Tinh te, these latest photos show a Z10-like, full-touch device with both Porsche Design and BlackBerry branding on its face. Around back is a leather rear cover with the BlackBerry logo stamped into it, as well as the same rectangular camera housing that was leaked previously. This particular unit is said to be a test model that's being put through its paces ahead of an official launch sometime in 2014.
The previous Porsche Design BlackBerry handset, known as the P'9981, was based on the Bold 9900 and feature a physical keyboard. It appears that BlackBerry and Porsche Design may be switching things up in the move to BlackBerry 10, though, mimicking BlackBerry's decision to release the full-touch Z10 ahead of the QWERTY-clad Q10. There's no word on how much this phone will cost, but considering that the P'9981 set buyers back a couple thousand dollars, don't be surprised if this updated model has a price tag that will make all but the fattest wallets tremble.
