Lightbulb Berry411 needs a new name-- suggestions?

Please Login to Remove!

Berry411 is going to be promoted as a part of the RIM ISV alliance, which is a great thing, but as a part of that I need to find a new name for the application-- RIM as you know is aggressively protecting anything related to "black" and "berrry".

I've been playing with a few ideas but welcome your suggestions about a new name that steers clear of anyone else's trademark. Thanks for your help.

That's too bad. Berry411 is a great name. I'll try and think of some.

since no "berry" and "black," use the word bb instead like BB411.

Is there any way of downloading Berry411 to my PC instead of OTA?

Default Bb

My only concern about BB is distinctiveness: there are other BB apps (BBSpell) and confusion will result about who makes what.

I like that name a lot, unfortunately the domain name at least is taken.

Default Bogle411?

Just because it hasn't been suggested, I might say Bogle411, since there's a WM5 version by that name available over at WebIS. I don't necessarily think that's the best option, but the name is already out there on a small scale.

Default Essential411

Since many of us consider this to be the third party application we find the most useful, I would like that to be conveyed in the title.

Essential411
Vital411

Or maybe it should reflect the multiple possiblities of use such as:

multi-search411

Whatever you choose for a name, it is a great application.
