    Default Do you say Zed 10, or Zee 10?

    Strangely I find myself saying it both ways. Not sure why I do though.

    Zed, because I pronounce it as such
    Plus, with blackberry being a Canadian company, it would seem somewhat awkward to go against how it's pronounced in their home country.

    I said zee at the rogers store they corrected me to zed. I called in to upgrade said I would like the zee10, rep says oh the zed10 sure. Really do I need grammar corrections when I'm trying to buy a phone?

    Zed, without a thought, but I think either pronunciation is regionally correct.

    I have to think about it every time I'm about to say it, so it depends on who I'm talking to. I'm a latin american who lives in Canada, so to Canadians I say Zed, to Americans I say Zee, and to Latins I say Zeta! I should just stick to one and not think about it!

    Since I live in the US of A and we pronounce the last letter of the alphabet as zee I say Zee 10.
    I'm thinking many people living in the U.S. didn't know other countries pronouce 'Z' as Zed. I did because I lived near the border in Detroit and Sault Ste. Marie for a few years.
