    Anyone know what might happen after they pass the Blackberry --- 9xxx? It would seem odd to be saying hey man check out my new Blackberry 10515, very futuristic, but odd. Anyone got any ideas, or real news?

    Maybe they'll switch to letters, like the A630 or something (e.g., treat the first number as a hex number).

    They won't go to 10,000, as that's too long.

    They won't go to numbers and letters, as everyone else does that already.

    They will be like prince, and use symbols:

    The BlackBerry #.
    The device formerly known as &
    The bb @.
    The .

    How about Egyptian Gods/Goddesses/pharaohs? Blackberry Tutankhamun, Blackberry Ramasses, Blackberry Isis (Goddess of Protection), Blackberry Anubis (Lol, god of embalming the dead), Blackberry Ra (Sun God)

    They'll never run out

    then RIM will have to get creative and drop model numbers and just use names like everyone else lmfao but 9xxx series should be the last string of models.

    Or even worse (better?), the BlackBerry Bold 9700.50 Ed. 2.0 Variant AAA

    Thousands of combinations before RIM gets to Bold 9999.99 Ed. 99.99 Variant ZZZ (pronounced zed-zed-zed).
