Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would know the key smartphone buying trend these days; people want their money’s worth, it’s as simple as that. BlackBerry ran a winning streak at the beginning of the noughties, however it is currently struggling to keep up with a market dominated by companies selling affordable smartphones.

Today, BlackBerry announced the addition of another smartphone in its range of Indian offerings – the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9983 Graphite, priced at Rs. 99,990.

If anyone ever decides to buy this phone it will surely be for its design. According to the company’s statement the device has been created by Porsche Design and uses quality materials. It includes a graphite stainless steel colour frame and keypad features crafted glass-like keys.

The smartphone comes with a 3.1-inch display, 720×720 resolution and 330ppi. It is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (MSM8960) processor complemented by 2GB of RAM. Storage capability is 64GB which is expandable up to 128GB. Camera-wise BlackBerry is offering a measly 8MP rear camera, and 2MP front camera. The smartphone is fuelled by a 2100mAh battery.

Note to BlackBerry: If you do decide to offer a smartphone which is priced a lakh, the least you can do is offer top notch specs.

    definitely blackberry have gone nuts, there future is as their name suggests ‘black’. Its just a showoff phone for the high class people but otherwise specs and performance is a disaster and oh can’t even think of the cost…i would like to buy a very powerful gaming laptop/pc in that price which is way better use of our precious money

    Blackberry should focus on launching phones priced @ Rs.9,990/- …Not @ Rs.99,990/-
    If it wants to just sell and maybe clear their stocks, forget about competiting now !!!
