There’s a point when a brand gets so big that if it puts its name to anything it can sell a million just by virtue of its brand power. Porsche has been one of these brands for a while and although you do get some completely wack Porsche spin-off products, the Porsche Design P’9522 cell phone looks to be one of the better Porsche derivatives to arrive on the scene.
A while back they put the Porsche brand on a so-so Porsche iPod-dock
but the P’9522 cell phone is more than just a rebranded generic handset, it actually has some fairly nice styling and under the bonnet (^^) packs a few decent features.
The unusually designed P’9522 flip and twist phone is deprived of the bonuses of 3G but does have such technical gifts as a fingerprint sensor to protect your ‘sensitive’ data and files as well as the following specs to garner it a fair chunk of respect:
• Quad-band GSM, with GPRS and EDGE
• 2.8-inch touchscreen display, 400 x 240 pixels
• 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash
• Internal GPS
• Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
• Media player functions
• FM radio
• 2GB memory card included in the package
• Talk time: up to 240 minutes
• Stand by time: up to 300 hours
• 115 grams
• 112 x 49 x 12 mm
The Porsche Design P’9522 cell phone already has its FCC badges so will no doubt be hitting phone stores anytime soon. The price? Well it’s a Porsche so expect it to be in the region of pricey to astronomical (around the $800 mark).
