No official word from Porsche, but rumors have Porsche Design teaming up with navigation software specialists Navigon AG to launch a Porsche Design personal navigation product, the P9611.

The sleek device sports a 480 x 272 pixel touchscreen, a built-in traffic news radio receiver and Bluetooth communications capability. The 9611 is based on an Intel XScale 520 MHz cpu running Navigon's upcoming MobileNavigator 6 software.

Expect an October launch for the product in Europe, preceded by the usual round of press and tradeshow introductions. The 9611 will carry a price commensurate with its Porsche Design label - expect to shell out around $950 (€ 749)
