Sydney got some hands-on time with the Porsche Design BlackBerry P'9981 while at BlackBerry World 2012 in Orlando. The P'9981 is basically a Bold 9900 but in a premium shell with high-end features. The front face is cased in brushed aluminum and the sides are framed by stainless steel. The back is hand-wrapped Italian leather and it comes with a matching dock that is also constructed out of hand-wrapped Italian leather. In the box, Porsche has included a set of its own high-end earbuds. Other than that, you've still got a 1.2 Ghz processor, a 2.8-inch display, and a 5-meagpixel camera with a flash. Even so, with all of its premium features, the P'9981 retails for $1,800 off-contract. If you're in the US, you can buy one and it use it on AT&T's 4G network or T-Mobile's EDGE network. Check out the video to see a quick look at this premium phone from RIM.
