When I first heard of the rumored BlackBerry Bold “R47” 9980 I pretty much dismissed it as a fake, photoshopped device since the first bunch of pictures were of very low quality. Then Chinese BlackBerry fan site BerryCN decided to post a lot of live photos and even got a live video of it in action for all to see, which I couldn’t ignore. According to them, this will be a “limited edition luxury device”. The info, photos and video show the Bold 9980 as functional and powered by the BlackBerry 7 OS.
According to another set of rumors, this device was designed by European auto manufacturer Porsche and is called the “BlackBerry Knight” but this is also not confirmed. You can check out the BlackBerry R47 photos and video below and feel free to share your thoughts about it in the comments or in the forums!
