    Agree that name PRIV for Private is not good. Just stick to Venice.

    Why did they use such an illiterate, hillbilly, insulting, disrespectful name??

    Just let me talk to whoever the hell chose the name. I need to know WTF they were thinking.

    There are going to be religious fanatics marching on the streets of Waterloo, calling for boycotts, etc. This name is an insult to humanity. It's a disgrace and I just can't take it anymore.

    So tired of being Chenned around here.

    Anyone remember this?

    Google's Eric Schmidt still loves his BlackBerry Bold 9900 | CrackBerry.com

    I wonder if he's going to get a Priv now. Heck maybe BlackBerry should give him one as a loyal BB user.

    Probably not.. he doesn't want his employees to spy on him..
    Or 'make his web experience better', cuz that's how they call it.

    Maybe Chen didn't actually realize that Priv isn't actually a word in English..?

    I didn't like the name Priv at first but now it is growing on me.

    IPad wasn't in the dictionary when it first came out and I also remember a lot of jokes associated with that name e.g reference to maxiPad and miniPad.

    Time will tell

    Terrible name. Visa, Venice would have been much better.
    Visa would have complemented the Passport rather well.

    Too expensive. If they had made it like the Passport in terms of pricing, maybe I would get one, but as it is, they are too proud of the device and want too darn much for it.

    Jesus that $950CAD price tag just ruined the phone for me.

    How the #*$& does Chen plan on having that as a competitive phone in Canada?

    Does that automatically mean that BlackBerry should do the same? They should if the phones were selling as much as Apple but right now they're dying for sales.

    The only reason that works is because they currently have a large loyal fanbase who crave the next update. Nothing against Apple fans, I'm just putting it how it really is, not trying to insult! They will buy the next phone because they've had an amazing experience on the previous phone.

    This isn't true anymore with BlackBerry as their current fanbase, while loyal, isn't big enough to make this work.

    They need to be taking aim at the general public or at least phone enthusiasts, and the $900CAD pricetag is really botching their chances of capturing that market unless they have some pretty good sales pretty quick after launch!
