For the small crowd of folks who are still loyal to RIM and their Blackberries comes a new luxurious model from Porsche Design called the Blackberry P9981. This model comes in just a little bit bigger than the related 9900 model, but since it’s casing is made from clean stainless steel with a genuine leather battery cover the P9981 is extremely solid.

If you’re looking for a new buddy for your iPhone or just have money burning a hole in your pocket then this may be the phone for you. The P9981 boasts a sleek Porsche Design logo up top and a super clear screen and classy four button navigation bar. This Blackberry also comes with the signature qwerty keyboard for those of you who are still against touch screen cell phones. Blackberries have been on a slow decline since the iPhone hit the market a few years back and now with all the Android powered devices it’s getting even harder for RIM to get noticed, but with a clean collaboration with Porsche they are hoping to attract their higher end clients with the P9981. Retail on this little gadget is just $2,350.
