design are typical hallmarks of Porsche Design. 
"Since the beginning, our brand has been identified with the colour
black," said Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group. "Our
first product was a completely black watch. It was a revolutionary
product and was a sensation all over the world. As is typical of
Porsche Design, the colour black had a functional significance. The
"Chronograph I" was inspired by the non-reflective design of racing
car controls, with everything in matte black apart from the
instruments. The aim was to ensure a clear and easy-to-read display.
The Porsche Design P'9981 Black follows this tradition." 
In May 2012, the judges for the prestigious Plus X Award(R) selected
the original Porsche Design P'9981 Smartphone from BlackBerry(R) as
the "Smartphone of the Year 2012."

platform with a 1.2 GHz processor and HD video recording, as well as
-resolution 24-bit graphics and modern sensors compatible with
new Augmented Reality applications. The P'9981 also has 8GB of
internal memory and a 16GB micro SD card. The memory can be expanded
up to a total of 40GB. The BlackBerry 7.1 operating system of the
Porsche Design P'9981 Black incorporates a latest-generation browser,
one of the best on the market, to ensure a fast and flowing surfing
