    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

    I am partial to a name I read somewhere else in the forums, "Blandroid". . .

    Except the H in HIV stands for Human, so an Android HIV makes no sense, much like the BB10 diehards here.
    it's in reference to the humans that use droid. droid does. get it?

    People are going to make dumb choices, but the reality is names matter. High end cars get discounted because of poor naming. How much effort would have been required to put the name to a public survey?

    Seriously, send a memo around the office, or poll a few people on the street. Venice is a good codename, Visa is too recognizable... but someone grab a thesaurus! Good bleedin' gravy!

    Neither @JohnChen nor @BlackBerry has replied to one thing I've told them about the Priv. Arrogant assholes.

    You know who they might reply to? One of those religions who get infuriated over the littlest thing. Like if a cartoon enraged you what about having a phone that tells the world you're a pervert or a dirty toilet lover?

    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.
    Assuming the name is even true, are you suggesting that John Chen and the other Tall Heads at BBRY doesn't already know this?

    It's not going to make a difference at this stage, the boxes are probably printed and shipped.

    Anyhow, unless BlackBerry is going to spend some serious dollars on advertising this phone, it's going to be know as BlackBerry android phone or slider.

    I doubt they will get recognition of the name amongst the mass consumer space.

    they said it would be available to the 4 major carriers... considering they make some floor space for display models.. the name will be in big letters for everyone to see. don't see how you'll doubt the name will reach the masses.

    Seriously how stupid are you. Are you a fan or not? A toilet?!?! Wow, this is fans nowadays. No big deal. It's just a name. You'll get used to it.

    Going by what our French pals here on the forums say, the name could work if it is actually printed as BlackBerry Privé on the box and media. But...

    Anyway, till now how many tweets has JC received about this?

     Q5 / Z30
    That's pretty cool! I wouldn't mind having it printed as, "Privé."
