The World's Fastest Phone?

the German automaker has branched off into merchandizing with its Porsche Design division, which has just launched their latest offering: the new P'9522 mobile phone.

Featuring the latest technologies packed into a slick package, the P'9522 includes a 5 mexapixel camera with flash, GPS module, stereo MP3 player, WiFi, quad-band antennas for use around the world (save Japan and Korea), and a biometric fingerprint reader for security. While Porsche Design's previous P'9521 was a flip-phone, the features of the new P'9522 are packed into a solid block of aluminum with a scratch-resistant glass touchscreen face. While €600 (approx. $774) may seem like a lot of cash for a cell phone, it's just half the price of the P'9521, available from Porsche Design retail stores and its online shop.
