Porsche Design Launches P’9522 Mobile Phone
Porsche Design, the german auto company’s merchandise shop, puts out loads of cool consumer stuff. Over the years they have had full lineups of fresh men’s and women’s clothing, watches, sunglasses, caps, belts, key rings, cuff links, golf accessories, racing gear, luggage, specialty bags, model cars, children’s toys, audio players and navigation systems. Oh yeah, and mobile phones too! The Porsche Design P9522 cell phone is not the company’s first foray into the mobile market, but it is their best effort yet. Similar to the new Apple MacBook, this phone is constructed out of a single chuck of aluminum. It has a very clean candy-bar form factor and is heavy and solid.
The unit is chock full ‘o features and functionality. To access the phone, a fingerprint reader confirms your identity and locks out would-be jackers. Once active, you have access to GPS navigation, a stereo MP3 player, a 5 megapixel camera, WiFi and quad-band frequencies for worldwide use sans Korea and Japan. Porsche Design enlisted 9 photographers from around the globe to showcase the P’9522 in a roaming exhibition gallery. Those images are shown below. The phone goes for 600 euros (~$775 USD).
