    It's pronounced as "pre" as in "preview" guys - chill out!

    The name rocks and makes sense - a little pretentious but it's time to depart from their roots.

    Priv is a bad name. I would call it "Visa," since it falls on the heals of the "Passport.". Next would be the "Green Card," and then the "Refugee."

    I even like BlackBerry pervert better. Priv is way to close to pry. So even if you have a clean mind still horrific

    A beautiful girl named Turk probably wants a name change. Unless she's the type to fit... which gets to my point:

    What's the pitch with a name like 'Priv'? Is it another high end elite enterprise only phone? Because we all know BlackBerry needs another one of those!

    It's a name that doesn't sell itself, and I'm amazed... frankly amazed. Was someone actually paid to decide that was the ideal name for a risky android slider?

    Simply amazing.

    Blackberry Shield or Leaf sound nice... S liderHIELD. The word Hield is Loved so I guess that kind of works... But really can't wait for this phone.!!!

    I really hope one of my friends gets this just so I can say "Dude, check your Priv" when they get a notification.

    So is this pronounced 'Priv' (with a short 'i' sound as in it) or 'Prive' (with a long 'i' sound as in lion)???

    Priv rhymes with give.

    That's what Chen said this morning. It's like Privacy and Privilege. That's what he says.

    Even if you take privy/toilet out of the equation. Even if you take pervert out of the equation.

    Say you totally get Chen's whole "privacy" "privilege" BS. Does that arrogant pre iPhone BlackBerry attitude fly with anyone who wants an android phone? The privacy thing will be gone once someone hacks the phone and they will.

    The privilege would only appeal to rich snobby assholes.

    This phones name is a disaster. It's a cesspool.

    John Chen is toxic.
