    So they deleted the thread I created about the priv.

    So dc2000 was correct. The marketing date was the 23rd because they would release the official name.


    "We�ve reached out to a couple of contacts ourselves and have confirmed this will be the official name BlackBerry goes with"

    I noticed that, and wonder why? So I guess a lot of people here owe him a big apology?? Too many a... holes gave him a hard time over the information he provided. Definitely wasn't deserved.

    If true, BlackBerry must be getting the dumbest MFr's on the planet to do focus groups, and they deserve to go out of business.

    But not generic enough to stop Nvidia suing.
    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.

    BlackBerry private and BlackBerry privacy wouldn't have sounded that good either (btr then prive though), so BlackBerry priv it is:/ I guess they didn't go with BlackBerry secure or security since that would've put an even bigger target for rooting lol and would've been an even huger pr disaster. "BlackBerry Secure/Security rooted within hours of release."

    This most be like the worst idea ever. Image if something similar to bendgate blows up (or screentearing) the jokes about sliding private parts will be endless. Why not just stick with Venice. RIM should replace their marketing team or just not add a new one. - These guys clearly aint worth a penny.

    Priv, eh?........ uhmm, shortened version of Privy, as in outside toilet. Yeah nice work guys. Or how about, the BlackBerry 'Khazi'? That will have them flying off the shelves.

    If you have to explain the pronunciation of a product name, then it's the wrong name.

    And I'm not the only one who thinks about not buying this phone if it's called this way.
    Just imagine the scene:
    "Hey bluglad, wow nice phone, is it new?"
    "Hey bro. Yes, it's the new BlackBerry Priv."
    "Dude, are you ok? Do you have a stroke?"

    Hrmm... Not a fan of BlackBerry Priv.
    Digging into it.... maybe it's not too late for them to change if true!
    Ask either for an additional "�", to spread some style OR a number suffix (which would be logical regarding naming conventions) like in PRIV8 !

    edit: As for the Avenger ... still a rumor, isn't it ?

    You guys sure it's not priv� as in "priveh" as in private in French? That would be a classy name.

    I'm offended by this name. I'm so angry that a phone I've wanted since the Torch is going to be named after a British Latrine.

    This slider phone had put up some roller coaster of emotions since the leaks! I can't even stop laughing from these comments!

    It turns out this is the legit name since Crackberry already changed the BLackberry 'Slider" category to ... you now "Priv"

    I can already hear someone will say "Your Priv is wide", "Never thought your Priv can get any longer when you go for the hard keys"

    Blackberry takes so much pride of this phone to more "Private", but wait until one hacker get his hands on this. Hackers gonna Hack
