The BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 is a high-end luxurious smartphone by Research In Motion and Porsche Design. Released in December 2011, it resembles the latest model of the Bold 9900, even sharing most of its hardware components.[1][2] They both share the same Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz, 768 MB of RAM, a 2.8-inch (71 mm) TFT capacitive touchscreen (built on 88µm pixel) capable of multi-touch with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and the same 5.0-megapixel EDOF rear camera capable of 720p HD video recording with and an LED flash. The major visual differences, are with the styling which include a unibody full stainless steel frame and authentic leather rear door. Porsche Design changed the aesthetics of the device by adding a uniquely styled metal QWERTY keyboard laid across four straight rows that are set into the steel frame, each row of keys divided by a space, along with custom menu buttons.

It runs the BlackBerry OS 7 upgradeable to 7.1 and features a custom user interface, modified by Porsche Design. Aside from this, the software contained within the device itself is parallel to that of the Bold 9900.
