The Porsche Designed BlackBerry P9981 is no secret, it is for sale in Dubai, we have gone hands-on with it, and we don't even want to know the things our very own CrackBerry Kevin would do to get one for himself. We have seen the outside of the device plenty but what we have yet to see was what it was packing on the inside, and a recent filing to the FCC was able to show us just that. While it sure isn't anything like an iFixIt teardown it does still show us what exactly is running in the device -- spoiler, not much different than what you would expect -- but we all know the nerd in you is loving this. Be sure to hit the links below for more images, and the full FCC filing.

Too angular for me.

......oh yeah,

......first

Ibn la Ahad

The design is just straight ugly. Well played, engineers at RIM, well played...

uuglyindaface

...and you're just straight trippin'. This is a bad-ass lookin' device.

Beesh1

It's actually Porsche Designed....and it looks guuuuuurrd

mssca

I agree... I don't want to be an iSheep type of Blackberry fan. Just because it is a BB doesn't mean it is good. I hate this stupid design. In fact, when I hold this on my hand, it feels more like a freaking brick not like a Blackberry phone.

I hate the keyboard even though it has similar, not same, dimension as the Bold 9900.

BBPandy

I love the back of it...but the keyboard & trackpad....YUCK!!

TRlPPlN

For everyone. I wouldn't buy it that's for sure. If it was given to me, I'll probably use it for a bit.

TeaBoy

Where is the 2010-present 3.600 litre 620 hp water-cooled flat-6 (bi-turbocharged)

NJPhilliesPhan

The design looks like something out of 2005. No one in the USA is going to pay money for a old fashioned looking keyboard phone. Get with the times BB and Porche.

sk8er_tor

Sweetie, no one in the US can afford it. That's why it's on sale in Dubai.

oldtimeBBaddict

Well, now that I've seen the innards, I now have even less reason than before to want one.

rfig

The fact that it was designed by porsche doesn't mean it looks good. In fact, I think it is extremely ugly, and reminds me more of a Nokia phone than a Blackberry. I hope Porsche paid for designing and actually making that thing, because I wouldn't understand why RIM would spend time and money on something that f'ing ugly and expensive given all the $#!+ they are into right now.

Rootbrian

Also RIM didn't design it, porsche did.

TheStoof

They think this is pretty?

This is terrible.

Rootbrian

I think it's an amazing design with an amazing device.

tmurphx5

I actually like it ... beauty is in the eye of the beholder ......... look at the number of different shapes of cars on the road

Liquid_Revolver

This is one of the many reasons RIM is up for sale...lol

RIP:RIM

Rootbrian

And wrong again. Go away troll.

sk8er_tor

Why are you still here? Can't find your way back to Android Central?

erin_elizabeth

This phone is straight up ugly! I really hope this isn't want the future bb's are going to look like!!

Rootbrian

Then don't buy it, quit complaining.

asiayeah

This is too expensive for me! So I have to say it's so "UGLY"!

Alright...I admit I want one. Compared to Vertu, this phone is so much more capable. It is also going to make one so stand-out in the crowd with this phone. If you can buy this in today's economy, you must be one of the world's most lucky guy!

re_matters

People have called a lot of things ugly and overpriced yet many people still bought them; they're called iPhones.

Rootbrian

I so want to see porsche design one of those, if apple ever lets them. Same for android and windows phone devices and nokia devices too.

Charade

The guy who took this apart is wearing too mich sun screen....oh yeah Dubai.

Terry_in_Hali

Would like to see the specs on this device.

Gregory Ryan

Same as the 9900, no surprises.

BoldWorld

where can we find out how many of this devices have been sold so far
any estimates on how many rim produced

Rootbrian

Porsche designed them. So you'd have to ask somebody who works for them, not RIM.

Gregory Ryan

Now where did I set my spare 2000 dollars? When I set it down I was like, "This is for my got to have it expensive phone stash!" I'll find it one of these days I know it. Kevin won't be able to afford it since he bought that Clock for 500 bucks, while roaming.
Side note: How many people handled this things touch screen? Can't even see it through all that oil.

Rootbrian

If I was to buy it, and own it, I would bloody rock it. Since you people can't stand it, don't buy it. For those who would buy it, ROCK IT!!!

Stupid judging. BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER. DON'T JUDGE A PERSON/DEVICE OR ANYTHING BY IT'S EXTERNALS. It shows you are ignorant, afraid, disrespectful and have prejudice.

El Platanero

calm down man. Just like you like it some don't. Just like you everybody is entitled to their own opinion. I think the phone is butt ugly. See how easy that was? Now when this phone becomes available go ahead and get it. You are free to own one. It's ok.....It's ok

spectre229

I am waiting for Michael J. Fox to pop up on the screen of this Flux Capacitor BB. What was Porsche thinking even trying to design a smartphone. They have turned a smartphone into a "Corky Thatcher Phone".

El Platanero

I'm going to go out of my way and say that this phone has to do with some sort of promotion of some sort. It may be priced that high but who's to say that it's not included in the price of an upcoming vehicle? Porche will be the only car to come out with it's original design phone but with the specs of a secured device. Just throwing that out there

auditman

Nice piece of hardware.

1oo1

I hate the Porsche Design of the new bold. Porsche should stick to cars. What's next Ferrari redesigning one of the BBX phones (Provided it get's released soon)?

greeneriko

So what! The thing is fucking ugly and it's fucking awesome. Why can't it be both? Open minds people, open minds people.

PS - You have all made my night ;)

narci

so when will we see parts for sale?

curious to see if the parts will fit with a 9900.

Xopher

It does look like an interesting device (although I wouldn't buy it).

Could they have at least cleaned the fingerprints off of the touchscreen before taking the photo, though?

BitPusher2600

It cracks me up at how many people hate this device. After looking at the pics that exist of this thing I think it's cool as hell. I doubt it would be a real pleasure to type on in terms of how the keys feel, but I think it's got a real futuristic look about it. All it needs is a QNX powered LCARS interface.

olblueyez

For anyone who likes this piece of Junk over a 9900, I have a Chrysler K-Car that I will sell you for 1999 Balloons.

Amithlon

I would never pay that amount for a phone, and i prefer full screen and no keyboard, but hey that's me , i still like the look, but i'll never have to worry about whether it works or not, like a lamborghinin countach, looks great - but a real pig in the real world, a ferrari designed phone sounds like a great idea ! - the italia (sexiest car on the road - well maybe equal to the new jag and the aston ). Me, i'll just stay with my storm 2 and 1 series M coupe for the moment.....
But april comes, the samsung note, S III are looking interesting, i can't wait till october or whenever the BB10 is due.....

Shouldn't that be 99 luft balloons ? (an old song)
