    I know this is kind of irrelevant ... But why is this thing codenamed the "Odin"?

    I mean .. come on .. what the he** is an "Odin"?

    Im trying to think here ... try Odin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Witchdoctor? Sigh...

    Shout out to RIM:
    .. Think of cooler sounding names in the future.

    Now that I think about it, I'd like to know how manufacturers go about choosing their code names.
    Besides, I'd much rather it be Odin than PapaBear like the Curve 8300.

    while I am not entirely sure here, I'm pretty sure Odin is a Norse god...personally I think its a pretty awesome name for a phone.


    EDIT: LMAO, I just clicked the wiki link. It seems my suspicions were correct.

    Odin ruled Valhalla, and well that's something a lot of us can't say about ourselves.

    Odin = God of Thunder

    Storm 1's internal RIM name = Thunder

    Odin wasn't the god of thunder, his son Thor was the god of thunder.

    Odin as in Od in the fact that RIM is coming out with the Storm 2 less than a year after the Storm 1.

    The husband of a coworker of mine is an engineer currently working with RIM. Their son's name is Odin.

    It's because RIM is too ashamed to call this thing the "Storm 2".

    Odin was the father of Thor who was the God of Thunder. The 1st gen Storm's code name was Thunder.

    Of course we have no conspiracy theorists on this site
    but if we did and one were to read into this, it suggests that the Storm is actually spawn of the Storm 2 as Thor was a spawn of Odin, and not the other way around.

    Perhaps the Storm 2 is more in line with RIMs original vision before influential external forces who shall remain nameless intervened?

    RIM might also simply be trying to convey that the Storm 2 exceeds the Storm by coming up with a code name that is related to (but at the same time more magnanimous than) the Thunder.
