Maybe this "Onyx" name is purely based on rumor. The back of the device clearly reads an engraved "Bold." Why not refer to this as the new Bold, or a second-generation Bold?
I hope RIM will officially name the device Bold because I hate the name Onyx. Reminds me of a stupid rap band back in the early 90's. YouTube - Onyx - Slam
This is the real Onyx. No talent whatsoever. Just two hundred hoodlums jumping up and down.
