    Y'know the last time BlackBerry named a device after a Marvel character, it marked the demise of the brand ("Storm", anyone?), however if this whole rumour of the device sporting a Marvel moniker is true, the most probable name that won't be a complete turnoff to the enterprise world would be Shield (a nod to Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") and a wink in the direction of a secure Android device that shields your deice from all the malware and security threats out there. Sure, Blade, could also be a possibility (especially since allegedly there are talks of there being a Snipes-featured Blade 4 movie).

    Because let's face it: "Avenger" is pretty bad. And Gambit, Beast, Fury, Hulk, Cyclops, Daredevil... none of these are any better.

    Thoughts?

    "named after a Marvel character"? Who told you that? Do you honestly think they did it because of Ororo instead of the "take the market by Storm" pun??

    Avenger IS pretty bad. It is also not the name of the device. It's a rumor.

    BlackBerry Protect was formerly known as BlackBerry Shield.

    BlackBerry Blade is a very well designed concept device.

    Really great idea, shield would also be indicative of security and strength. I think that would be the best name for this phone!

    This could cause issues with NVIDIA's Shield but I'm no lawyer.

    If BlackBerry's device name are all about puns, I think it should be called in a symbolic way of securing Android - like Key or Photoid for the oid They had Passport already so why not use something from the airport!

    Could have linked to the Crackberry article...

    Although it says its a BB10 concept, the image on the screen uses PlayBook icons mimicking the BBOS 7 homescreen. I suppose it was a good guess since in May of 2012, we hadn't seen the final BB10 yet, and the prevailing thought was it would be similar to the PlayBook OS since it was QNX already.
