I think Cseries > NUMBERS (might as well be a barcode)Ideally for naming conventions (especially for flagship[s]) they should have a NAME!Build on the reputation of that NAME with future models.e.g. Pre – Pre Pluse.g. iPhone – 3G – 3GS. Different phones but reputation keeps improving despite previous phone’s misgivings.even N95 – N95 8GBThough I’m still wanting a simple 2 syllable NAME (at least for the flagship). It needs to roll of the tongue like melted butter. Something easily pronounced, something MEMORABLE.Codes- e.g. Nseries N97/N79/N96/N95/N93, so easy for geeks/bloggers/tech peeps but not so for your average consumer.Previous RANT on Nokia naming:Looking forward to the N9 eNnineBuild on reputation, expand the number of people that know about that model (it may be a different device but same moniker will make mind share penetration easier)
