Porsche Design Blackberry P’9981 dipped in 24 carat Gold

When Research in Motion teamed up with Porsche Design we saw how a normal looking Blackberry Bold 9900 can be transformed into something that looks amazing good and beyond this time frame. The futuristic looking phone with a black cover and split keys came at a price of £1275.

Since it was difficult to better their concept, they did a trick to make it more expensive. What’s the trick? Dip it in gold!! You heard it the Blackberry P’9981 is blinged with gold, that too 24 carat pure gold. Mission accomplished as the same phone costs £4799.99 now.

Brushed aluminum casing and the keyboard get the golden treatment, other than that it remains same as the old P’9981. Features include touchscreen, QWERTY Keypad, 1.2 GHz processor, 8 GB internal memory and a 5 MP camera with LED Flash.

Each of these phones is numbered and market for the authenticity and only 100 of these will be made for the rarity and exclusivity. Also 10% of the sales from each phone will be given to the 2012 Sports Relief charity. A noble cause in an expensive way.

It is being sold through eBay in UK only, but if you are too eager, which you should be, the company can be contacted through the site. The owner has to pay the price and it is quite a price to pay.
