    EV Leaks just said on Twitter that, at retail, the Venice transforms into the 'BlackBerry Priv'.

    I bloody hope not...what on earth does Priv mean?

    EDIT: I guess it means private. Terrible name. What happened the rumours of the BB 'Visa'? Far more sophisticated.

    Of all the things I was worried BlackBerry might screw up, the name wasn't one of them... go figure.

    It makes me laugh how much a consultant was paid to pick a name that haters will call the BlackBerry Privy.

    Hmm. There's been a BlackBerry Priv in the Telus system for a few days. Wasn't sure if it was relevant or not until I saw this. Interesting.

    "Priv" could quite possibly be the worst-sounding thing I've ever heard.

    There's no way a Canadian company would release anything called "Priv". I will bet everything holy and great North of the 49th on it.

    What a bad name though.

    It they pronounce it "preeve" as in preview it's OK. If it's pronounced "prive" like private eh...not so much.

    Wow, just wow. Why do they always have to make things so difficult for themselves!? Self-inflicted wound. Again.

    Hopefully this isn't true. Why can't they just call it the Venice?

    I second this. Venice carries a certain class with it that would make for an excellent market name. Priv is just going to make them the **** of all kinds of jokes.

    I can hear people making fun of it by calling the BlackBerry 'Perv'.

    Horrible if true. They should have just stuck with Venice because BlackBerry has already received a ton of publicity. Typical BlackBerry to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    If Priv is for privacy it makes it even worse. Even the biggest android fanboi would admit there is no privacy on android
