BlackBerry Z10 Porsche Edition debuts at grand price

Harrods is selling the Blackberry Z10 Porsche Edition for more than 1,000 pounds.

Your BlackBerry Z10 might be all well and good, but it's not going to impress your oil-baron, airline-owning friends, is it? What you need is the Porsche P'9982 BlackBerry phone, which takes the internals of the Z10 and wraps it up in a Porsche-designed body. BlackBerry couldn't tell me the exact price, but it did say it'll cost well more than a grand.

The bulk of that money is, of course, going on the Porsche name, but you do at least get some good materials for your money. The body of the phone is constructed from stainless steel, while the glass-weave back panel is coated in "genuine Italian leather."

A special edition version with crocodile leather will also be available, but expect to pay even more for that one -- presumably because it's more dangerous to get the skin off the crocodile in the first place.
