    Default What would you name it?

    There was a thread at the beginning of this month that was all about what to call this next generation Storm.

    The names people came up with ranged from the mundane to the creative: Storm 2, Odin (the internal codename), Tempest, Blizzard, Tsunami, Hurricane, etc.

    The one that struck me as the best was proposed by Sara_cakes:

    Blackberry Bolt

    The reason I'd choose this name, despite the obvious marketing opportunity is because it follows the pattern of Blackberry naming practices.

    All BB's have an internal codename of 2 or more syllables: Odin, Onyx, Niagara, Pluto, Dakota, Magnum, Atlas, Stratus, Striker, etc.

    When they are released they always have 1 syllable names: Storm, Bold, Tour, Pearl, Curve.

    So there's my reasoning, debate away.

    I personally like Odin. Not sure the meaning behind it but it sounds cool . I think they should stick with it.

    bolt confused with bold, not goog for advertising.

    Tempest is better, follows the Storm theme and sound more militar like.

    I thought about that after I posted it.

    What about Blackberry Thor?

    The Blackberry G-d of Thunder.

    Or maybe the Blackberry Zeus?

    Odin is the name of the Chief Norse G-d. Here is the Wiki.

    Keep in mind every blackberry up until now has had a one syllable official name (curve, pearl, storm, bold, tour).. I'd expect they'd probably keep it that way. In fact, I think they'll probably just stick with the Storm name... I mean, there's like 3 or 4 different Curves, and two Pearls..

    Although Tempest and Odin both sound awesome, if RIM swung that way..

    I vote for the name BlackBerry Storm 2. IMHO the name Storm is the best device name by any company to date. Granted, Onyx is good too, but many BlackBerry names are not all that special (Curve) or are downright bad (Tour), so why not build on one of the few good names already in the maket.

    Odin sounds cool, as does Zeus, but really, Storm is the right name 2.

    I sould say the blackberry balls. cuz this phone is as they say the balls
    Don't ask, and we won't tell.
    This is my opinion and in no way reflects the opinion of Verizon Wireless or its affiliates. Do not consider talking to me a substitute to actually talking to a Verizon representitive, because I often lie. I find it very sad and pathetic that anyone would actually read this far... And to anyone who reads this and thinks its dumb a big middle finger to you.

    I don't know... I think a "traditional" name would be better.

    Something like, Robert or even Ruben...

    What about the Blackberry Thunder.

    I know that was what the storm 1 might have been called in the early days but I think its cool.

    Also the Blackberry Widowmaker. Now that is just awesome.

    Imagine the conversation.

    Bob - Hi dave what kinda mobile do you have.

    Dave - I have a nokia n97. What do you have

    Bob - I have a Blackberry Widowmaker. Be afraid be very afraid.

    I think that would be well cool.

    I say hurricane because a hurricane is more powerful and further reaching than just a regular storm.
