At this point, the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983 is far from a secret. Its been spotted all over the place and has even appeared in several up close images already but the list of specs for the device has always been kept to the rather obvious stuff such as the display, processor and RAM.

A new spec sheet has now appeared along with another batch of images that claims to list the full specs of the device for everyone to judge. It doesn't confirm anything that wasn't already assumed anyway but if you fall into that 'Prestige' buyer category it's worth a look.

The Porsche Design devices have their fans, so let us know what you all think. I'm holding out for some real images, those have yet to appear and as we all know, devices tend to look different from their press renders.

Email Plus

We've seen quite an increase recently of BlackBerry 10 developers giving away free copies of their applications to CrackBerry readers and things don't seem to be slowing down. Next up for grabs is Email Plus which is an email client for your BlackBerry that gives it a new look and feel.

This won't be to everyone's liking, especially when I say that the application looks very much like the email inbox on an Android device. However, as you'll see below, there's a ton of features included, but I'm going to be totally honest and say that I've not tried out this particular app. I like my BlackBerry 10 Hub far too much to think about using something else for reading my emails.

Features include:

  • Multiple account support

  • Hub notifications (can be turned off)

  • Configurable background synchronization

  • Light or Dark theme option

  • Folder subscriptions

  • All folder synchronization

  • Return-address configuration

  • Keyboard shortcuts

  • Message sorting

  • Unified Inbox

  • Email signatures

  • Attachment saving

  • Emoji support

  • …. much, much, much more

If you fancy giving this one a go just hit up the following link, pull down from the top bezel, select 'Redeem' and enter the code EPLUS500 and the price will switch to free. Let us know what you think in the comments please?
