    "zed" comes from Greek "zeta" (why isn't B pronounced "bed"?). The first official recognition of "zee" is actually in Thomas Lye's "New spelling book" (England, 1677). So you guys changed it, not us! Webster's Dictionary in 1827 decreed "it is pronounced zee"
    Teachers always do their homework.
    It's just like "gotten," which goes back to Elizabethan English, but now doesn't fly at all in the UK.

    However, I like the sound of Zeta for the Z10. I think RIM should go with that.

    I've seen where people think the Z stands for Zed.

    I think the Z stands for Zen

    As I've listened to the videos, it seems as if sometimes it's said the Zed10, however the more I listen and pay attention, I hear Zen10.

    Only BB knows for sure.

    I find amusing, the time and energy wasted on debating how we pronounce 'Z'. Can we all at least agree we love our Z10 and move on?
