    It's a dumb name for sure, but not buying the phone based on the name is even dumber.

    Agree, not buying a phone based on its name is just ridiculous. Maybe as ridiculous as the name itself..

    Speaking about that, of this turns out to be true, I'll just refer to it as the 'BlackBerry running Android' or 'BlackBerry Slider' when talking about it

    What are you guys taking about? The Sony Loo, the Samsung Urinal, and the HTC John were all wildly successful.

    The Nokia Bidet would also have been a success, but I think Americans didn't know how to pronounce it.

    Seriously. This is CrackBerry.

    A product name is marketing.

    Week marketing staff = weak marketing.
    Weak marketing = low sales.
    Low sales = low revenue.
    Low revenue = lay offs, slow brand growth, low to no R&D and being passed by competition.

    Sales is the fuel that powers the machine. And yes, product names directly impact product sales.

    Except the H in HIV stands for Human, so an Android HIV makes no sense, much like the BB10 diehards here.

    I could care less about the name, what we need is an official announcement from Blackberry and a release date as to when folks like me can buy the dam thing???

    True! But I'll put money on unit that the BlackBerry haters are salivating at the mouth waiting to hear a horrible name like the Priv on a new BlackBerry device.

    Look! It's Zedzilla30!

    I've been reading the comments sections of stories about this name online, and I've already seen 5 people say they wouldn't buy this phone on its name alone. After all the effort they've put into the Venice, we can't let them inadvertently blow it up by giving it a name so incomprehensibly horrendous. It's not too late though! Everyone start hitting up @BlackBerry and @JohnChen on twitter and tell them what you think. Seriously, start tweeting.
    Lest we forget the Classic was originally supposed to be the Q20 and turned out to be The Classic. Lol. I doubt Venice will be its final name. It's just BlackBerry doing the rope a dope
