Nope, you didn’t read the title wrong. As you know, the iPhone and Android devices have not been helping BlackBerry sales all that much. Well, RIM isn’t going to take this laying down. They have a new secret weapon. One that is sure to turn the tables. It is a new limited edition Porsche design P’9981 device. So what is so special about this device? Well, to start with, it has a retail price of $2000 and well, that’s about the only thing that is special about it, other than it was designed by Porsche.
You can check it out here. You may notice that at the bottom of the page there is a link titled, “You may also be interested in…” and it shows the Bold 9900. The reason you might be interested in it is because it has the same exact internal specs as the P’9981 but doesn’t come with a $2000.00 price tag. I am not sure what is crazier, the fact that there is a $2000 BlackBerry or the fact that there is someone out there that is going to buy one.
