The irony of a company called YinzCam making fun of absurd product names aside, this site is a whole lot of fun because it lays bare the formula for modern tech marketing: meaningless technobabble + words that sound like they belong in an episode of Transformers + inane PR buzzwords = a good name for a smartphone.
Read all three of those fake phone names again. Do they really sound that unlikely? For all we know, LG is working on the Desire Incredible Plus Z Prime right now.
Take the very real Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch. Really? They couldn’t cram a few more buzzwords in there? Samsung’s a repeat offender in the horrible names category. Go online right now and you can purchase a Samsung Solstice II, Samsung Conquer 4G and, most notoriously, the Samsung :), presumably named by the CEO’s 11-year-old daughter.
Nothing can beat the Casio G’zOne Commando, of course, which sounds like the world’s worst G.I. Joe character. What are your nominations for the worst smartphone names ever?
