    Hello Blackberry Android Fans

    Well, things are getting exciting now--we've got a possible name for the BlackBerry Slider aka 'Venice' and I'm PUMPED

    I've been harping on Blackberry (non) Marketing, but seeing this name I take it all back, especially once I heard what some of the alternatives were.

    The 'Priv' is the apparently winner, but I have it on "good authority from a "trusted source" and "reliable leaker" (that used to be my film name) that these were under consideration.

    The Lod (pronounced 'Load')
    The Heav: (Pronounced 'Heave')
    The Lam: (pronounced 'lame')
    The Hag
    The Smear
    The Log
    The Wet
    The Suk
    The Prik
    The Smak (pronounced 'smack')
    The Pimp
    The clique (that actually could be kind of cool)
    The Def (for defender?)
    The Wad
    The Reer (pronounced 'rear')
    Lastly, and what I understand was the runner-up: The BlackBerry Taint.

    We can just hope it isn't soon known as the BlackBerry Flop

    I need one of those Picard Emojies...oh there it is

    Yes! The BlackBerry Taint! That's just as good as Priv - I wonder why they didn't go with that.

    Hello,

    Someone Comments for the news posts said that this Android-Blackberry Hybrid has a great name now.

    The Priv Operating System...aka the POS. I lost it.

    I thought "Venice" sounded professional / exotic.

    I'm assuming "Priv" has some relationship with a marketing strategy - In that, I will be very dissapointed if they don't market this phone properly.

    Hello,

    Blackberry Safe is better for sure, but I'm not sure it is as appealing as it could be.

    I think if the name doesn't become a joke, then that would be sufficient.

    Passport to Venice. That would have been a cool spin on the evolution of BlackBerry. Instead, we got "Priv".

    No, "Priv" is perfect. Chen can be sure now that the hardware division has no chance of surviving.

    That same thought came to mind, but only because it sounds cooler.

    They should stick with Venice. Like everyone said, it sounds classy.

    Next runner up....

    Blackberry One. All the manufactures are going with the One thing. And since it is Blackberry's first Android-berry/Blackdroid - Blackberry One makes sense (to me).
