While the Porsche Design BlackBerry P’9981 has been on the market for some time now, us in Canada have had to resort to other measures to get our hands on the device. During the official opening of the only Porsche Design store in Canada, I had the opportunity to sit down and discuss BlackBerry with the CEO of Porsche Design, Dr. Juergen Gessler.
Dr. Gessler himself is an active BlackBerry user, and the addiction for him started almost 10 years ago. Dr. Gessler also noted that he doesn’t think that the partnership between Porsche Designs and RIM is over, and as long as they are building hardware there will be the opportunity for more collaboration between the two companies.
As you can see I was quite excited to talk shop with Dr. Gessler, and even more excited to know that his passion for BlackBerry was almost as strong as mine. Heck even the two brothers that opened the Toronto Porsche Design store are BlackBerry fans and visit CrackBerry.com frequently. My question is, what product will Porsche Design work with RIM on next? Sound off in the comments on what you think it should be.
