RIM Porsche Design P'9981

Verge Review

Last summer, RIM introduced the world to the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and BlackBerry 7 operating system. In spite of adding a faster processor, slimmer profile, and the nebulous Liquid Graphics, that combination failed to spark imaginations or stem the tide of dissatisfied BlackBerry customers upgrading away from the platform.

    I have this phone, I love it, the more time I spend with it the more I love it. The design is a love it or hate it situation I find it more beautiful than the Bold 9900. The call quality is fantastic! The keyboard is just amazing, but not better than the Bold 9900. Overall hefty price tag, but worth it.
