    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.

    Default BB Z10's real name

    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?
