    I think BlackBerry should let us name it ourselves. I'll call mine b1tch, cause I'm a thug.

    BlackBerry 10 + slider + Squircle = my dream phone

    I'm no isheep but I definitely think the personal assistant needs a name so people so people can talk about it and immediately know they are talking about BlackBerrys personal assistant. When you hear siri or cortana you know that they are talking about. Google now isn't even a good enough name. I don't know what the answer is but I hope they come up with a good one.

    How about Paddy? Like an old pda. The blackberry logo can be green like a four leaf clover. Who doesn't like st. Paddy's day. Also kind of makes me think of a golf Caddy too

    Barry - there's no other choice
    ^ This.

    It makes sense, it's a bit tongue in cheek plus the media will scoff as per usual. Sounds like a helpful dirty uncle, so pretty much how BlackBerry users are perceived. If IBM can have a Watson why can't we have Barry.

    Ok. So bear with me on this one...

    the personal assistant is supposed to help with something which results in an action or an answer of some kind. The latter would come in the form of a notification, and BlackBerry already has a name for the little cross-thingy that shows a new notification and that name is Spark. So why not call it Spark? So when addressing the personal assistant you would be addressing the notification in a way.

    And Spark is damn close to Spock. Best PA ever

    I'm surprised nobody suggested "Secretary"

    I mean, you definitely can't get "enterprisey" any more than calling it "Secretary". It's what the big bosses have, the people so important they need another human being to keep up with the amount of information they need to deal with

    With the purported how awesomely good the Personal Assistant is at getting the job done, Secretary seems like a fitting title

    Although I have to admit the term sounds pretty old

    All terrible names...

    1. Is/was an evil entity bent on ruling the world and enslaving the human race...this would be more suited for apple.

    2. An incompetent assistant that refuses to do what it's told and loves to give you a hard time.

    3. The dumbest character on the Simpsons. Like blackberry needs another name to be ridiculed by.

    Bad idea, not everyone likes or celebrates st. Patrick's day. BlackBerry is a global brand and calling it that you're catering to a specific group of people and telling the rest of the world to screw themselves.

    Really? And have every female assistant on the planet in an uproar??... i don't know if you just woke up from a coma but the word "secretary" hasn't been used in decades in office buildings, hence why they are now called Personal Assistant. Sure, some bosses still use it cause it's easier to say but when you go to HR to apply for the position 99% of the time the application calls for "Personal Assistant ".... same reason why airline crew members are called Flight Attendants and not Stewardesses.

    I would pay a few dollars to marvel and simply call it Jarvis. It makes sense if it's as advanced as they say it is.
