Android Phone Name Generator pokes fun at phone brands

Let's face it: there are a LOT of Android-based smartphone out there in the marketplace. A lot of companies put their various brands on the smartphones: Samsung, HTC, Motorola, Sony, Pantech, LG ... the list goes on and on. In addition, each company has to come up with names for all of these smartphones.

Now the general public can have some fun by creating their own names for Android smartphones via a new web site. The Android Phone Name Generator uses the real smartphone names and brands of all of the Android phones that have been released so far and then generates a new name ever time a person clicks on the "Generate" button on the site. The web site is backed by YinzCam, which normally creates smartphone apps for sports fans.

A quick few minutes of using the Android Phone Name Generator came up with these gems:

Samsung Devour Vivid V Plus - Yes, I wish to buy a smartphone that I will devour (or will it devour me; it's not clear) while giving me something that's vivid, with a V, and a plus.

HTC Mesmerize Incredible E - That's right: buying this phone will be an incredibly mesmerizing experience.

Sony Ericsson Droid Optimus - Watch out: this phone sounds like it could be a Transformer in disguise.

Acer Nitro Plus - This smartphone can jump over creeks with its Nitro Plus feature.

As you can see, this web site can be a fun little time waster while you shop for the holiday season for a real smartphone. Just don't get the Motorola Neo One; that sounds like it will take you inside the Matrix.

Boring....I thought you could choose for example

BRAND: HTC
SERIES: Galaxy (from Samsung)
MODEL: Milestrone (from Motorola)

then it would mix these up and generate some weird and funny combination. After clicking generate a while, the list just loops.

Not too impresive.

Right. Naming things is so 1990.

We go with <company name/Only Product Name> <revision number> now.

Xbox - Xbox 360
PSX - PS1 - PS2 - PS3.
iPhone 2g - iphone 3g- iphone 4s
Windows XP and Vista became Win 7, Win 8 is coming...
nvidia 3256-8sd or ati 3260xsp or whatever video cards are..
we get core i3 core i5 or core i7 processors instead of pentiums or core duos..


like why bother with names? numbers are the future to show you redid your product a lot....

When IE8 was released, Hachamovitch said one of the names they had considered was "IE Desktop Online Web Browser Live Professional Ultimate Edition for the Internet"
