The Porsche Design P’9982 launched in my hometown last night with a great party. There were loads of celebrities along with Porsche Design CEO Juergen Gessler and BlackBerry CMO Frank Boulben. We got you some great stats from that night including this awesome shot above of Adam @CrackBerry taking a picture with his Z30. :) (Adam caught some good shots too)
Adam was one of the many celebrities at the Porsche Design Soho Boutique. They had a window art installation by New York based artist Baron von Fancy. Music by The Misshapes set the mood while guests were the first to view the new phone and toast the launch with a P’9982 cocktail (Vodka, freshly squeezed lime juice, sage, simple syrup and floating sage leaf). The event screened photographs by New York photographer Aaron Stern taken with his P’9982 and a short film by Downtown darling Va$tie showcasing her life with a P’9982, filmed in HD with the new smartphone. Contemporary culture editor Jeff Carvalho was present at the event displaying how he uses the P’9982 in his work.
Porsche Design CEO Juergen Gessler greeted the crowd together with the CMO of BlackBerry Frank Boulben with a welcome speech and an introductory video on the new smartphone. The evening then lead into a performance by Brooklyn based band Chairlift followed by more dancing to The Misshapes.
