    FYI, BlackBerry hires a company named CatchWord branding company to come up with some of their product names. They are responsible for the alphanumeric system of naming the Z10 and Q10. Also BlackBerry Active Frames and BlackBerry Natural Sound.

    Apparently a lot of Fortune 500 companies use them as well. They also created Starbucks Refreshers, FitBit Force, Surge and Charge, Chipotle Sofritas, Adobe Air, and Corning Willow Glass just to name a few.

    Maybe this will help calm some of the hate towards the Priv name. Priv SE does sound pretty sweet tho!

    I hate the BlackBerry Priv name, but I'm hoping it's successful BlackBerry nonetheless.

    Well... we might get used to it. This name just leaves too much room for puns in my opinion.

    No, I actually hate the name... and I love everything else about this phone. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory... please say it ain't so.

    Well, it seems the name has now been confirmed as the Blackberry Priv.

    They've published a pictogram explaining how the branding process was carried out.

    Its all speculation up to this point, I sure hope those folks up there in Waterloo use that space between their ears to come up with a name that will attract the consumer back to the brand? Hopefully we will hear the announcement and official launch date shortly and they don't drag their feet getting the device to market?

    Venice or slider is MUCH better than priv!
    I would have chosen something more aseptic such as BlackBerry S50.

    That's the problem... space between the ears instead of anything solid.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm still buying it... but I'm not as shallow and image conscious as others. But the younger set is all about looking good.

    If I do buy this phone, I just won't call it the priv. Will call it the "new" blackberry.
    Fwi my friends still ask me when they see my Q10 if that is the "new" BlackBerry.
    No other company can produce phones and still have them being thought as new 3 years later. Lol.
