Last night I was invited and completed a market research poll on e-rewards.com. The survey was obviously sponsored by T-Mobilie to find a good name for their new android phones. The survey featured 4 possible names for what we know as the HTC Magic. A picture of the phone (clearly the HTC Magic) as well as slightly different descriptions accompanied each sample and a bunch of questions were asked. The names in order from the survey were: G3 (that's not a misprint), myTouch 3G with Google, Genius 3G with Google, and Prism 3G with Google. All item descriptions featured the same tech specs but it different on how it can be used I guess to go after certain demographics. The G3 and Genius 3G descriptions were similiar in explaining its productivity aspects for data mangement and web capabilities. But the myTouch and Prism seemed to concentrate on how the phone makes it easier to keep in touch with your friends and the world. Two other phones were also featured. The "myG wiz3G with Google" looked a lot like the new Samsung android phone when compared to the blurry pictures we have seen. There was only the one name for that phone in the survey. The PalmPre from Sprint was the other phone in the survey. I am assuming this was done to gauge how people will react to the competitors product. I am not sure as why G3 was selected as a possible name leaping right over G2 but the fact that T-mobile is now testing names is very significant. Perhaps we are one day closer to an announcement.
