    Default 9981 Black vs Silver

    I was one of the first adopters of the Silver PD Berry. It was the first revision so the built quality was so so. I was fed up with the uneven keyboard lighting distribution, wiggling keys etc. So I got myself another PD berry. This time the black version. Built quality is much better. KB lighting is even, keys don't wiggle, it's 10 grams heavier than the silver one and the quality of the materials feel much better. Overall I'm pretty much satisfied with the black PD berry. Though build quality is still light years away from Vertu.9981 Black vs Silver-photo-1.jpg9981 Black vs Silver-photo-2.jpg9981 Black vs Silver-photo-3.jpg9981 Black vs Silver-photo-4.jpg9981 Black vs Silver-photo-5.jpg9981 Black vs Silver-photo-11.jpg9981 Black vs Silver-photo-22.jpg

    The Black looks pretty cool op. You must have some good straight keyboard practice by now ready for the BB10 N series.

    I'm glad that's the first Vertu I've seen. It's a bit harsh on the eyes.

    Btw, do you know how many matte black P9981's Harrod's sold whilst you were there ?

    I got mine from a PD store. The manager told me that there are going to be 1500 Black PD berrys produced.

    Nice.

    Definitely the nicest looking 9981 of the three imo.

    Everything just looks cleaner in Matte Black. I know the original silver was to look "bling'ed", but the Black commands just as much attention.

    Default Confused between P9981 black or Q10

    I am very confused whether I should go with new black P9981 or should wait for Q10..

    Request you all to please help me

    A lot depends on what your software requirements are. I suggest that you research what the OS7 capabilities are vs BB10. The P9981 meets all my needs, as I mainly use it as a communications tool. I find that the audio of my phone calls is excellent. Web browsing is very fast. Sending and receiving e-mails and texts is very good. The Q10 is also a fine looking device. As it has a new operating system, you would have a lot more features to play with. Some people have been unfortunate in getting a lot of problems in their usage of the black and silver p9981. So you need to consider whether you want to take a chance by buying it. I have been lucky so far with my silver one. Taking all factors into consideration, only you can make the decision between the two phones

    I am waiting for the black one now to compare it to the silver one I currently used. I like how the silver one stands out better but I'll have to wait and see until I get the black one

    Buying the Silver P9981 twice last year but not loving it that much, I got my Black P9981 two days ago and I am loving it all the way. Black is the color meant to be for the 9981

    I just ordered a silver, and a black one.

    I actually ordered the silver - and then I saw this thread - and when I saw the black one - I ordered one of those.

    It's much more stealth looking, I really like it.

    I'll sell the silver one to get some $ back!

    DOES anyone know why the black version is 10 grams heavier?

    Well im guessing the steel they use is probably of harder and more durable material especially the keys.

    The silver (listed as black but pix show it as silver) cost me $1250 brand new on Ebay:

    The Black (I spoke with seller and confirmed it is black) was $1300 brand new on Ebay:

    Blackberry Porsche Design P'9981 8GB Black Smartphone 4046901678135 | eBay

    I'll be listing the silver one on Ebay for $1250. I just have to wait for it to arrive here first.
