Porsche and Sagem Introduce P9522 Candybar

Is it just me, or are more and more luxury car manufacturers releasing their own mobile devices? Seems to be a little mini-trend these days. If you own the car, might as well pick up the phone too, right? If I owned a Lamborghini Murciélago I’d probably pick up the Lamborghini ZX 1… I think. The latest to follow this trend is a new device from Porsche Design and Sagem. The Sagem/Porsche P9522. Catchy name.

You’ll notice the standard Porsche font featured on the device, as well as Porsche styling. It is however lacking 3G. That’s a bit disappointing. More specs include:

  • 2.8? touchscreen with reinforced mineral glass (wow, mineral glass!?)
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • built-in GPS receiver
  • WiFi connectivity
  • built-in fingerprint reader (cool)

Pricing is expected to start around 600 Euros. Look for it to hit shops in France next month.
