Research In Motion (RIM) confirmed last week the upcoming availability of the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 in matte black from mid-January.
However, it looks like the smartphone will go on sale a few weeks earlier in the UK. Pocket-lint
reports that the black version of Porsche Design P'9981
will be exclusive to Harrods for no less than £1390/ $2245 / €1700 outright.
According to the cited source, the smartphone will hit shelves on January 2. Harrods’ exclusivity is likely to end in mid-January, as suggested by RIM in the official announcement.
“Our very first product was a completely black watch. It was a revolutionary product at the time and proved to be a great talking point all over the world. As is typical of Porsche Design, the choice of black had a functional significance,” said Jürgen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group.
