BlackBerry has officially lifted the lid on its latest collaborative product with Porsche. The Porsche Design P'9983 has been leaked and rumoured for a while, but the phone is now a reality, having been unveiled at an "exclusive event" in Dubai.

Running BlackBerry OS 10.3, the P'9983 looks perhaps more like a conventional BlackBerry than former devices from the two firms. It is all-black, but comes with a glass-like finish on the rear and keyboard.

Each handset will come with its own PIN, setting it aside from others sold at the same time. And other features including encrypted BBM instant messaging for business and personal needs, plus the BlackBerry Priority Hub, where you can manage all of your conversations and notifications.

BlackBerry promises "amazing battery life" but doesn't exact detail how long that might be but owners will have a greater choice of apps to download than ever before because it will access and install apps from both the conventional BlackBerry World store and the Amazon Appstore.

There is currently no word on actual release date or pricing, but we would expect it to be in an limited run. Previous editions were available from shops such as Harrods in the UK.
