The new Blackberry Z10 Porsche P'9982 edition is available exclusively at Harrods, the luxury London department store owned by Qatar, from November 21.

The body of the phone, which retails from $2,340, is constructed from stainless steel, while the glass-weave back panel is coated in "genuine Italian leather". A crocodile leather edition will also be available but for an added premium.

The front of the phone is engraved with the Porsche Design logo and the overall masculine design, high-end materials and sleek case render a level of luxury that can be comparable to that of British luxury phone brand Vertu.

The Porsche P'9982  has the same internal specs as the Z10, including a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch display with 1,280x768-pixel resolution, the latest BlackBerry 10.2 software and an 1,800mAh battery.

The only hardware difference is that the P'9982 comes with a sizeable 64GB of internal storage, trumping the paltry 16GB found in the Z10.

Although not the most brilliant specs, buyers of this phone will be aiming for eye-catching style rather than cutting edge technology. They will also receive an exclusive BlackBerry pin which starts with "2AA" to let everyone know that they are part of this elite club.

It would have made more sense to have this design on the Q10 and Z30, as the whole world knows by now, the Z10 was a disaster. The Z30 has some good features and with a better operating system and specs.
