Porsche Design BlackBerry P'9982

by Volker Weber


Recently I have been asked by an iPhone user which BlackBerry I would recommend to buy. Technically, the answer is very simple: a Z30. It is the best BlackBerry currently on the market. But I don't like to make broad recommendations. For somebody who only texts and places phone calls, the Q10 is superior.

Why would an iPhone user want a BlackBerry? There are technical reasons, like having a better phone-phone. The Z30 fits this bill since it has a superior antenna. And then it comes with Bluetooth SIM Access Profile, which lets some cars use their own antenna and radio instead of the phone's.

And there is something else, that people don't like to talk about. Status. Everybody has an iPhone or a Samsung. If you want to stand out, you need something else. And the ultimate status phone in a business context is a P'9982. Because it is rare, and expensive, and secure.

How expensive? 1650 €. That's a lot of money for you? Well, there you have it. Status.


It would look sooo much nicer without the "porsche design" in screaming letters.

No. That is part of the deal. It looks (and feels) just fine.

Porsche Design. Andere Firma.

Jein - wenn man sich die Beteiligungsverhältnisse anschaut, ist das eine Tochter der Porsche AG.
Mittlerweile gehören 65% zur Porsche AG: http://press.porsche-design.com/index.php?id=152&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=43&cHash=13d136d5963adbc2217dc54525e28eb5 .

Hinter der FaPo GmbH vermute ich eine GmbH von ehem. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche (dem Gründer und ursprünglichen Inhaber von pd).

P.S. Ich fände das Blackberry auch schöner, wenn das pd Logo etwas dezenter gehalten wäre.

Mir gefällt's. Kein billiges Plastik, sondern Stahlrahmen und Akkudeckel aus Leder. Sieht sehr edel aus und fühlt sich sicher auch so an. Dazu 64GB interner Speicher und als Schmankerl ein sehr cooles, exclusives Uhren-Design. Würde ich sofort kaufen - wenn der Preis nicht wäre :) Aber wie Volker schon sagte, wer sich abheben will von der Masse, muss eben zahlen. Wissen auch die iPhone-Besitzer.
