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.
