When price isn’t a problem, luxury devices including the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 that’s soon to hit India, could just be viable picks. The custom-made smartphone in question will arrive in the country bearing a Rs. 139,990 tag.

To craft out this device, a forged stainless steel frame is incorporated along with a leather back cover that’s apparently hand-wrapped, and a QWERTY keyboard. The final result measures 115mm x 67mm x 11.3mm in terms of dimensions. The interface is also tweaked to deliver a rich visual experience through the Porsche Design UI, and to create a distinct appearance from other BlackBerry devices altogether.

“The brand new P’9981 smartphone is a milestone product for Porsche Design,” commented Juergen Gessler, CEO Porsche Design Group. “It is a representation of the iconic Porsche Design styling philosophy and RIM’s technology-driven focus, which combine to deliver engineered luxury and performance in a smartphone for the discerning consumer.”

On the specifications front, the handset incorporates a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. Accompanying the SOC is 768MB of RAM and the Liquid Graphics technology. The front panel flaunts a 2.8-inch transmissive TFT LCD proffering VGA resolutions of 640 x 480p and a pixel density of 287ppi. A 5MP camera rests on the rear featuring 720p HD recording, flash, geo-tagging and 4x digital zoom. A total of 6.6 hours of talktime or 13.1 days of standby can be achieved over a UMTS network.
