    I think it's phonetic... so it's pronounced "Venice" (like "tennis" but with a "v")

    The fact that there has to be a discussion over the pronunciation of "Priv" proves that "Priv" is a stupid name. Whoever the phone namer is at BlackBerry needs a Macho Man Savage elbow from the top rope.
    OOOOOOH YYYYA, X's 5
    The phone namer is in the wrong field of work, and I just hope that this is not the official name.
    There's a half dozen ways to say this stupid word, so Priv has to the be the dumbest name ever, so I don't know what they are thinking, even a stupid gimmicky name like the "Glide" is better.

    I thought Priv is usually pronounced as /flɒp/ ?

    I was wrong.

    So, may we conclude that Priv is pronounced like the first four letters of PRIVacy?

    I suppose "Priv" could be a shortening of "privileged"
