    I've always wondered why this forum is the only one that has a different naming convention in the FORUMS drop down?

    Why "PRIV BY BLACKBERRY" not "BLACKBERRY PRIV"?-untitled.png

    Obviously not a big deal, just something I have wondered about multiple times a week for the last few years

    It's just marketing / branding lingo...

    I think the original idea was to launch PRIV as it's main brand. With the idea of having future products launched under the same PRIV brand name. Maybe their plan was to have a PRIV tablet, PRIV full touchscreen... who knows what else... but since the product flopped, that idea went sour quickly.

    When it's PRIV by BlackBerry, that puts the focus on PRIV brand with BlackBerry being the supporting brand, the "by BlackBerry" typically used for brand trust.
