  31. My 8800 is named Monolith. As it brings unknown intelligence to lowly ape-men like myself.

  38. I have two Berries, so two nicknames: Iggy and Ziggy2. But the story’s a little convoluted:

    I named my first 8830 from VZW after Ziggy from the Quantum Leap series. What couldn’t that “little” handheld do on that show? Personally, I think Ziggy was a futuristic pimped-out Blackberry, but that’s just a theory of mine…

    Anyway, since my Berry could do almost anything, the name seemed like a natural fit. After I dumped VZW for T-Mo, I decided to name my Curve “Iggy” as an homage. Then…my place of employment gave me an 8830 from…you guessed it, Verizon. So I named that one Ziggy2 (in honor of the 8830 I had to return to VZW when I jumped ship).

    So that’s the story of the two nicknames.

  39. I call mine PimpBerry.

  40. My Curve 8110 is called: Liger… its a Lion with a Tiger 😉

    sounds familer to “Léger” in french, which means “casual” 😉


  41. Sry, didnt mean Curve. I has a Pearl ;D

  42. i call my silver curve “titanium cranium”

  43. My BB nickname is 8320. LOL.

  44. my VZ 8830 is “MattBerry”

  45. “TaserBerry” just a small joke with the guys at work. I work for a sheriff’s office and whenever someone asks me a question I usually “draw” BlackBerry before any realises it lol. A joke that just kind of stuck.

  46. i call my red pearl the red berrari, it is one with my car(i wish i had a ferrari), i use it every time as I’m driving (txting, reading articles, calling, etc), much to the dismay of my passengers 🙂

  47. I have named my Curve, ,my extended brain’. I dearly value by bb as important as any tool I use to be successful during my work day. As a police officer I take full advantage of most of ‘my extended brain’s’ features from sending intelligence pix to fellow agencies to court date reminders to memos program used for investigative notes. Thanks for letting me laud this wonderful device. Take care and God bless. Tim

  48. Winners should be posted soon. Sorry about the delay.
