[LINK] Porsche-Design BlackBerry Z10 not a parody

Having failed spectacularly to take itself private, BlackBerry’s latest scheme is a Z10 produced in conjunction with Porsche Design. It costs $2250, and I have trouble believing they’ll shift any, even given this astonishing feature set:

Dubbed the P’9982, the device is essentially a more ostentatious version of the poorly received BlackBerry Z10, crafted from stainless steel and crocodile leather, and — bizarrely — touted with a “special series of PIN numbers” that will make its owners “instantly recognizable in the exclusive world of Porsche Design smartphone owners.”

Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh for the ages, anyone?
