The Verge has a review of the new Porsche Design P’9981 BlackBerry. Spoiler: even as a super-sexy bit of hardware (hardware keyboard aside), it still sucks.
In case it wasn’t clear from the foregoing, this phone has excited a deep level of antipathy in me. BlackBerry 7 was an uncompetitive OS the moment it launched and hasn’t aged well since then. The one thing that RIM really got right with the Bold 9900 was actually its design, which was attractive, contemporary, ergonomic, and durable.
