    I dunno when the choice was made to go with DTEK50 as the name but they had everything ready for it to be called Neon with Hamburg being the codename.

    Slightly amusing.. BlackBerry was debating DTEK50/Neon name for a while..-screenshot-2016-08-12-21.45.08.png

    After seeing the LG Neon years ago, I feel they've made the right choice with DTEK50.

    The LG Neon is an old device, it came out in 2008 or 2009. I remember seeing it in the wild. It had a pretty flimsy build quality and kind of ruined the neon name because I always think back to that device when I hear the name neon.

    Yes they made the correct choice. But they could have chose another one. https://cnet1.cbsistatic.com/hub/i/r...1333-OVR-1.jpg

    Seems they took their time releasing the phone. The sticker on my package said built date was 2/2016

    If Neon and DTEK50 were the only two names available in the world then I'd agree with you.

    DTEK50 isn't a bad name. I'm not sure why it gets so much flack.

    Much better than Neon.

    I actually think the DTEK name is excellent for branding. The numbers can change, but it always points out what the device is all about.

    Dtek50 works perfectly as a name for me, dtek as in detec(t) any nefarious shenanigans on the phone. Perfect, 50 being a random starter number prefix followed by a 100 then a 150 etc I don't see why that's any less legitimate than anyone else's names, Iphone, wow how original ;-)

    That was my first phone! And everything you heard about the build quality was true, it was horrible

    Why not just the Blackberry DTEK? I don't see the point in the 50 being in the name. For branding purposes this could be the original model instead of slapping a 50 on it for no apparent reason. Future models could have a number attached to it, but it just seems strange to name it DTEK50. I'm not in marketing though, so whatever I guess.

    Hello Everyone,

    I don't know--after PRIV, DTEK50 feels pretty good to me.

    Uh, the Neon is not the PT Cruiser... Unless they had different names where we are, those two are two different vehicles. The Neon was a compact sedan and the PT Cruiser is a.. I have no idea what to call it, a weird hatch-back-like POS?

    The PT Cruiser used a modified Neon platform. Sold a lot but a tremendously unsafe car.
