BlackBerry has unveiled its latest posh handset designed by Porsche, the Porsche Design P'9982 by BlackBerry.

The new phone is a variation on the company's all-touchscreen Z10 handset, but instead of a plastic construction, here it's stainless steel and leather, for a truly premium feel.

This is the second Porsche Designed BlackBerry handset to run the company's new BB10 operating system, following on from the P'9981, which is a variant on the keyboard-touting Q10.

The P'9982 features a 4.2in, 768 x 1280 pixel screen, a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon processor, 2GB RAM and a whopping 64GB of built-in memory as well as a microSD card slot.

It also has an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera and runs a re-skinned version of the BlackBerry 10 operating system.

"Every aspect of this smartphone has been purposely designed and built for a powerful premium experience, " said Alistair Hamilton, BlackBerry’s Senior Vice President of Design.

Priced at £1,400, and hitting shop shelves on the 25th November, the P'9982 is clearly a rather frivolous luxury, but there is something about it we rather like.
