RIM is trying to cover the smartphone market, so is launching its new phones, here comes BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9881 in India with 1,39,990 INR price. As Porsche cars are very famous in the market so will be its phone. The handset is luxurious containing decent apps but still lacks some important needs that can make it ahead in the competitive market.
The phone is launched in India after 6 months since RIM was in doubt whether a phone with such a high price will be successful in India or not. In my opinion it will not come to the RIM’s expectation since it really have high price with no touchscreen that every other Indian user want.
BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9881 can be considered as a new version of BlackBerry Bold 9900 since they have many of the same specs and features. BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9881 has 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 Snapdragon single core processor; although it is single core but it can do things beyond your thinking. RIM will provide 768MB RAM to this handset which is enough for such a phone.
If you are thinking why BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9881 is sounding familiar then let me tell you that RIM had launched a similar phone in December 2011 which was not so successful in market. One of the reasons of why the BlackBerry’s phone is not so successful is that they don’t have touchscreen which most of the users want; users want to see things on larger screens with less buttons.
If we talk about the features of BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9881 then it has 2.8 inch screen with 640 x 480px resolution and 286ppi pixel density. The handset has QWERTY keypad which makes the size of screen smaller. The dark color handset with sleek designed keyboard looks smart; the design is based on real Porsche cars which give it a different look.
