Porsche Design is known for some of the slickest, most elegant designs when it comes to engineering pens, shoes (golf, tennis, driving, running), watches, luggage, sunglasses, coffee makers, cuff links, power drills (surprised?), pocket knives and even smoking pipes for whatever you’d like to smoke. Would you expect anything less from the majority-owned subsidiary of Porsche AG?

Porsche Design has teamed up with French based Sagem Communication, to create their first mobile phone, the P9521. The P9521 has certainly won my aesthetic approval with its minimalist design and “cool” materials such as the aluminum casing and mineral glass display.

Spec-wise, the P9521 comes equipped with a 3.2-mega pixel auto focus camera with flash and zoom plus video recording capabilities. A double hinge made from aluminum enables the screen to be rotated through 180° – thus allowing the phone to be used as a digital camera. However, the P9521’s most impressive feature is the fingerprint reader, which identifies the user and thus ensures secure access to personal data. This is Mission Impossible / 007 COOL.

The P9521 will be available from fall 2007 in Porsche Design Stores and specialist mobile phone retailers worldwide. The mobile phone will not be sold in the US, Japan or Korea.
