    Maybe the whole issue will be moot as it will be the "New BB10" in all touch or qwerty!

    i just caught my self saying it "zee 10", and im Canadian
    zee 10 just rolls off the tongue, zed 10 doesnt sound very marketable.

    Don't be confused. It's a pronunciation of a letter. Just some stuff from the alphabet, totally ignorable.

    One thing's for certain, you won't hear any Brits calling it a Zee anything. Most of us have only used the Zee word three times in our lives... once while mocking Johnny Foreigner trying to say 'the', and the other two saying the name of that beardy rock band big in the 80's.
    I have a solution to keep us all happy though... Thor should put on his best German accent and announce the phone as 'zee Zed 10'
    Two birds with one stone. Sorted

    It's nothing bad
    Just a term of endearment we use for anyone who's not a native Englishman. Probably where the film character Johnny English got his name.

    yeah, no problem, if somebody in the US buys a Zee, at the same time a Canadian can buy a Zed...

    A phrase beloved by Harry Flashman and Bulldog Drummond. Totally spiffing chaps traveling the empire tupping the ladies and putting Johnny Foreigner in his place dont you know.

    Its a victorian phrase, now used in a satirical and affectionate way.

    Almost two-thirds of the world's native English speakers reside in the United States. Majority rules!

    Or we can call it zeta diez, as they do in the rest of the Western Hemisphere outside of Canada and the U.S. That has a nice flow to it. Kinda like "cellar door." Zeta diez (say-tuh dee-ace).

    Zee 10, zed 10.... zeephone vs iphone, .... If it's a bust it will be the zero. Poor product name overall for marketing, Imo. Launched in NY, I can already see it's name getting played on in an SNL skit.! Hope that it's OS is so good that nobody cares about the phone name.
