    BlackBerry Coup is better. Or BlackBerry Vanguard!

    PassportSQW100-1/10.3.1.2576 O2 UK
    BlackBerry Vanguard - I like that. It easily fits in with the protection angle and it starts with a V, which ties it into the codename of Venice.

    i have a feeling it was a fake name that Chen gave to 1 guy who he suspects of leaking.... and it came out, and bam! Chen's gonna bring the hammer on him!

    there is NO WAY that will be the name for the device..

    Blackberry loves to give names that have one syllable.

    Curve, torch, leap, priv, lol.
    But what about the "Classic", "Passport"....? These were great names to go with. Don't get how they botched this... I really hope they do a last minute change and just go with Venice.

    My reaction to this name:

    http://www.youtube.com/v/YkK5-F8Mki8...hl=en_US&rel=0

    At least they could spell it "Prīv"

    and for posterity, my (enhanced) musings from the CrackBerry News posting...

    ...but running Android undermines the Privacy aspect of the device (the "Priv") so "Priv" really isn't an apt name... but BlackBerry IS putting in extra security features in the device so a much better name is:

    wait for it....

    Secs
    And when they release a new, updated phone, they can advertise it as:

    'Better than Secs'

    Knowing that Chen doesn't like Leaks, how plausible it is that the "priv" is just a intentional leak, to later reveal the real name at launch?

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

    The worse part of the name Priv, is the prefix name "BlackBerry." BlackBerry will do a run of about 250,000 units, claims it sold out on Amazon, come out with a silver one a few moths later, then red, and Porshe will make a hideous version and all the fanboys, will buy each version and colour. The biggest problem in a sea of over 2,000 other Android vendors is the name BlackBerry, not Priv...

    It's sounds too much like "perv". No thanks. I'm not going to endure the humiliation and the crude jokes about the name of the device.

    Is patenting law so stupid as to patent a word in the dictionary?

    I understand there would be a issue if it's called BlackBerry Nvidia Shield (which obviously it won't) but how can there be an issue of calling it BlackBerry Shield since it boots up with the image of a android robot with a Shield.

    I think the problem would more be that they are essentially a very similar product, and the issue is with copyright laws, not patent laws.

    Actually, they are Trademark laws, not copyright laws.

    Lest we forget the Nintendo Wii. A name isn't a death sentence, even if everyone thinks it's ridiculous. But BlackBerry isn't doing themselves any favours if they launch something with the name Priv.

    In fairness, the name "iPad" was universally slammed, and Apples only sold maybe a half billion of them.

    But yeesh, if they can change it at the last moment, they need to. Who the he'll thought "Priv" was a good idea?

    It depends, they have to build the packaging with the name of it beforehand. So it depends if they already did it or not

    They can always just slap on the crummy stickers, like they usually do on their usually beat up boxes.

    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.
    Makes me think of Spiv (a flashy con artist, often homeless, who lives by his wits).

    PLEASE let the Priv app developers sue BlackBerry so they can't use the name! Hurry BlackBerry, come up with something else!

    no won't it be priv as in rhymes with live?
    you mean like "I saw America live in-concert at the Canadian National Exhibition on opening day" (long I sound) or "BlackBerry's name for the new slider has made me lose my will to live" (short I sound?)

    Maybe "rhymes with 'five'" or "rhymes with 'fib'" would be better.

    I think it's "rhymes with five".
