    How about something that plays off the multitasking aspect of the Playbook? If using food I think of something that has layers to it. A great French pastry is called "Mille Feuilles" which means "a thousand layers". It is sweet, rich, stylish and clearly has depth! All attributes of the Playbook! It can be found worldwide so is familiar to many (see this Wikipedia article Mille-feuille - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). As a name I think "Mille Feuille" (pronounced as "mill foy") has that "stickiness factor" as described by Malcolm Gladwell that makes people remember. People like saying exotic or fancy sounding phrases
    As much as I love BB, I might have to find a new product before I call my OS "Mille Feuilles".

    QNX is enough of a puzzle. No names that require translation or are made up... (XyBoard)

    Since you want cut-sy names, how 'bout knife. stiletto, rapier, blade.

    I don't want to go back but has anyone else commented on the subject being misspelled?

    Or Seven of Nine from Star Trek Voyager, wait, no, that's back to numbers. Trill is the better idea. Introducing the first Starship Enterprise ready tablet: the BlackBerry PlayBook with OS Trill!
    I take it you're not a Star Trek fan. Deep Space Nine is a space station.

    "two symbiotic races of aliens in the fictional Star Trek universe".

    In other words two different beings combined in symbiosis that creates a unique individual with both beings characters.

    How about some German names since Heins is German and Waterloo has such a huge German population?

    Brombeere - Blackberry
    Holunder - Elderberry
    Heidelbeere - Blueberry

    Or we can try something less fruit/berry related with just badass words:

    Panzer - tank
    Metzger - butcher
    Spitz - sharp/pointed
    Blitzkrieg - lightning war

    Definitely cannot go wrong with this:
    pnktlich - punctual

    How about calling the update "sex"? It is appropriate.

    We are all waiting for "sex"
    We can't seem to stop talking about "sex"
    Those that haven't had "sex" yet seem to be obsessed.
    We don't know exactly how long it will be before we get "sex".

    You probably mean pariah...

    LOL. I read it as "pariah" from the start and just assumed it'd been typed on the Playbook!

    How about Kevin's "Ham Sandwich"? BUT since that is not an option for the poll... I'll go with BARSKIN! LOL
    And in some states that will get you a prison sentence for sodomy.

    barskin, great idea, but terrible names in your poll.....
    g) none of the above for me, lets hope you haven't applied for the CMO position

    I do like snomans ideas... hat trick for 3.0 is brilliant ! icing or breakaway for 2.0 could both work.

    I call my playbook my crackbook.... maybe that would work :P
