    Is anyone going to answer my question? If I wanted to buy this phone and walked into my carrier, how would I pronounce "Priv"? I'm serious.
    I asked my friend they said like priv-acy

    Not a fan of the name but as long as it's released with android on vzw I really don't care. When people ask me I'm going to say it's the BlackBerry slider anywyas.

    With a name like that, I'm embarrassed for BlackBerry seeing as they are too stupid to be embarrassed themselves.

    Maybe there was no focus group. Maybe the "leak" and the reaction is the focus group.

    Hopefully they haven't already printed the boxes and documentation yet.

    This is just a guess but based on some things EV leaks said I am guessing it is pronounced with a silent V like "pre"

    Yes, I think for their sake we all hope they can just declare a mulligan on this one. There is still time to print new boxes.

    Again, according to EV leaks, there is not. This is a done deal and there is no going back

    They may as well call it BlackBerry [ insert name here].... wtf

    I think the name 'Blackberry WTF' would have been better. These guys just need to shut the doors on the place and get it over with. I've never seen a company try oh so very hard to fail. It's almost like they want to go out of business.

    That is the worst name for a device ever. It just sounds disgusting and I'll say it will be the laughing stock in the phone world.
    No matter how they spin it, the conversation will go something like

    P1: "my phone has the best 'hub' , best features, best keyboard, and the the best security "
    P2: "yeah, but it's called "Priv"

    "Shows us your Priv".... now that will get you a slap on the face.

    Except that without an "e" at the end, that's not how it's going to be said out loud by regular people.

    Yes, and then imagine these CB headlines being rewritten now:

    I don't think so. Silent "V". Never heard of that one before. If they wanted it pronounced pre, they should have just called it Pre and been done with it.
    As usman_hidayat19 said it is pronounced Priv like in Priv-acy.

    Just call it the BlackBerry X

    "Dude did you just get the X"

    X = 10 = BlackBerry 10

    BlackBerry = ex (like an ex gf) = 'Get back with the X'

    Etc. instead BlackBerry decides to go to the toilet, again!

    They definitely don't want the pre association with palm.

    Priv like as in p-r-i-v (like a British person would say privacy) or prive (like an American would say privacy)?

    It will all make more sense when they release the limited Priv Silver Edition... Or, should I say:

    "Priv SE"
