Nokia To Start Naming Phones
Sep 7, 2006, 1:18 PM by (staff)
Nokia's chief of marketing, Keith Pardy, today said the company will start giving models names instead of numbers. The company first broke from its traditional four digit numbering scheme for smartphones like the N-Gage and later the Eseries and Nseries. However those attempts at capturing buyers' attention did not catch on like the RAZR or Chocolate have. "What you will see coming from us in the future is not just a numbering system, you are going to start to see names that carry a meaning and are important to consumers," Pardy said. However he did not say whether Nokia would name all models or just select handsets. Pardy also hinted that Nokia will launch some thin handsets soon.

Hope they can afford a vowels
Pat sells them for 50 bucks on Wheel of Fortune.
I hope Nokia can afford to put some vowels in the names.
Rokr, Slvr, Pebl, Razr. Looks like Motorola can't afford to buy vowels.
You do realize that A, E, and O are vowels, right?
I know it will be better to have this than trying to differentiate between the 6256i and the 6265i. That is a pain in my behind.
