It isn’t actually called that, they gave it some fancy mixture of letters and numbers: P’9981. it is a co-branded product by Blackberry and Porsche and if i’m completely honest, being an Apple follower this product is something very cool and would not shame the Apple brand name.
It has a 1.2Ghz processor so she doesn’t only have a pretty face. It also has full HD camera, 8GB of storage which is expandable and the new Blackberry 7OS.
All this tech is fitted in a slick forged metal casing with a full QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen.
To give you a small idea of the price, the phone has its own concierge service.
if you haven’t guessed the damage to the wallet yet…. i’ll give it to you….. $2,000.
Normally when someone looks at a Porsche, the main critique is that there has been no design changes from one model to the next. They come across as the laziest designers to date. But this all changes when you take a look at Porsche Design. this company is a subsidiary of Porsche AG and takes everyday objects and throws exceptionally cool design making it compete with the sexiness that Apple products have. The have altered designs from simple cigar cutters and external hard disks all the way up to Humidors and this lovely new piece of kit in collaboration with Johnnie Walker Blue Label Whisky. (Whiskey if you are American)
These designers have thrown everything at this piece. Can you call it a whisky drinker’s dream? I think so.
Depending on your love for your whisky and mainly your budget, you get a choice of three products.
TheChiller: a brushed titanium case with blue leather to hold a bottle of Blue Label.
the Cube: basically the same as the Chiller where the top turns into an ice bucket, however this piece holds four crystal tumblers, a pair of stainless steel tongs and an individually numbered bottle of Blue Label.
The Private Bar: Now this is the piece I would save my money for….. 6.5ft tower of titanium, glass and leather. The top opens via electronic sensors and pivots 180 degrees to show off its gifts (somewhat like an oyster showing off its pearls) three bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue Label, four illuminated crystal tumblers, chilled water and an ice bucket.
If you feel you must have these, you can find them at Harrods stores. If the shop wasn’t any indication of the price I will give them to you.
The chiller goes for £240
The Cube goes for just under £500
and the Private bar goes for a cool £100,000 and can only be bought on special order. Better get your order in as only 50 of these magnificent pieces will be produced for sale worldwide.
