Today, BlackBerry and Porsche Design unveiled the latest smartphone from the partnership, the Porsche Design P’9983 smartphone from BlackBerry, at an exclusive event in Dubai. It’s definitely a smartphone that will get you noticed and with the power and security of BlackBerry 10.3, keep you highly productive. I’m one of the lucky few who got to see this exclusive premium smartphone first hand and, of course, just had to give it the same fantastic unboxing treatment as other Porsche Design devices in the stable. I could go on about the stunning glass-like finish on the iconic BlackBerry keyboard… but it’s better to see for yourself in my latest video.
