Porsche Design BlackBerry P’9981 Receives FCC Approvals Possibly Headed to AT&T

Research in Motion announced its premium BlackBerry P’9981 smartphone back in October and confirmed plans to launch the device later this year.

It appears that the smartphone has just been spotted at FCC (Federal Communications Commission) by the folks over at Wireless Goodness. Filed under model number REQ71UW, the P’9981 won approval for GSM 850/1900, WCDMA bands II and V, Bluetooth, WiFi and NFC capabilities.

Even though AT&T has yet to make any official announcements on the P’9981 release, the latest hearsay suggests that the device is expected to hit shelves by the end of the year.

Built in collaboration with Porsche Design the P’9981 is a luxury smartphone which is equipped with the same platform chipset as the BlackBerry Bold 9900.

However, Porsche Design used exclusive materials choices to build the P’9981, including a forged stainless steel frame, hand-wrapped leather back cover, along with sculpted QWERTY keyboard.

Although the smartphone is delivered with BlackBerry 7 operating system, Porsche Design P’9981 also features an exclusive Porsche Design UI on top of the mobile platform.

In addition, the exclusive Porsche Design the P’9981 includes premium, exclusive PINs that allows owners to easily identify another P’9981 smartphone user.

As we already mentioned, the Porsche Design P’9981 is built on a the same chipset platform included with the Bold 9900 smartphone, including the 1.2 GHz processor and 768MB of RAM.

Furthermore, the smartphone packs 8GB onboard memory and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 40GB).

On the back, the luxury smartphone sports a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, image stabilization, face detection and HD (720p) video recording. The 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen boasts 640 x 480 pixels resolution and support for 16 million colors.

No word on AT&T’s Porsche Design P’9981 pricing options, but this one is valued at $2000 (1425 EUR).
