It's also posted on CB's News page.
Off-hand, my first impression was that the keys looked very flat and like they'd be crazy hard to use. Wasn't especially impressed with the rest of the overall look either, but I guess the Porsche name will bring some interest and cachet.

Seriously, Porsche Design is just a marketing outlet to promote the Porsche brand by offering Porsche branded accessories. Several of their products are beautifully designed and overpriced, but fail in functionality. A good example was the 2009 Porsche Phone that Wired magazine said:
You can get away with a lot if youíre beautiful. Such is the case with the new Porsche Design Pí9522 phone. In some ways, itís a wonderful and capable cellphone, but in most others, itís dumber than the gorgeous block of aluminum it was machined from.

"It is expected to be expensive judging by competing luxury smartphones such as the new TAG Heuer Link smartphone released earlier this year at a reported cost of $6,800 (Dh24,976) each."Patiently waited for BB10. Now sporting AT&T Z10

The sources they based that article upon shows the "Proceeding" on devices you can see are real.
I'm sure they would/should replace that with BlackBerry or Porsche though.
That "Proceeding" seems out of place to me.

Well, there's one BB that I would never buy. And if seone gave it to me I'd try to sell it on eBay.
Who would buy such a hideous looking thing....whoever designed it was def overdosing on Back to the Future marathons.

I'm just going to assume the 'leaked' pic is a fake, or some failed prototype and the new one will actually be a reasonable looking phone.
What I do hope for is a re-skinned 9900. I'm all for premium phone brands for those with the cash to splash for them, especially if they're actually good phones! A premium skin of the 9900 would be awesome.
The problem comes in that if the phone isn't for the mass market, it won't develop the accessory after market, which is where the concept falls down IMO.
I just think of Vertu phones as a good example. But I guess if you're dropping $5k on a phone, covering it with a case is probably the last thing going through your head :P.
"Man, I really love this new Vertu, but it keeps falling out of my pants when I get out of my Ferrari! Wish I had an otterbox!" hah
P.s. Didn't get my invite, wtf? I live 5 min from Burj Khalifa - how did they screw that up?? :P
