Is what you see in the image, the “Sony Ericsson Atrix Black Z Plus Prime,” the name of a phone or an American Gladiator?
Sadly, this is a question I’ve asked myself before, as cell phone names have become a bit ridiculous these days. It appears that I’m not the only one who feels this way either because a company called YinzCam has come up with an entertaining way to poke fun at phone-naming schemes.
The Android Phone Name Generator is a simple site that randomly generates names based on existing Android phones. Some of my favorites include the Samsung Amaze Neo Z II G1, the Motorola Hero Neo, and the Sony Ericsson Motivate Black One. There are also some that I could actually see becoming real names, such as the Samsung Nexus Touch.
