    I was at the Frankfurt Airport a few weeks ago, where I visited the Porsche Design Store and got the chance to actually hold two P'9981 devices in my hands, the silver one and the black one. Now the instance I held the black device in my hand I fell in love with it. I also had the chance to go into the menues and kind of liked the whole experience reminding of the Bold 9000 I once owned. But that was in 2009 and let's face it, it is different to actually use the device as your every day communication device in 2014 and onward.
    I would love to hear from P'9981/Bold 9900-owners and know about your experience. How does it compare to the BB10 experience? I am worried that using a legacy device alongside a modern BB10 device might feel awkward. (I have owned a Z30 and am going to get the Passport asap). I specifically love BB10's hub where I have all my Communication as well as BB10's stability. How does the BB OS 7 do in these areas? I have found the black P'9981 for under 1400 USD in Sweden. What to do?

    I would be more concerned about continued support by your network for BIS before laying out serious money for a device. It will be good only for voice calls and SMS without BIS.

    @Branta Good Point. Will the BIS be fased out soon?

    That is a question which can only be answered by your selected network. Networks with only a few BIS customers are likely to drop support sooner than those with many, and only the network will know how long BlackBerry is contracted to provide service to the network. Bear in mind that it is around 2 years since the last new model phones running legacy BBOS in some regions.
