Friday Poll: Got a name for HTC's next phone?

This week, on its Facebook page, Taiwan-based handset vendor HTC asked fans for help naming its next phone.

Since the Razr and the iPhone, manufacturers are thankfully giving their handsets real names instead of monikers like the T4-839i or the 4Fgi0s319zl3 or the EIEIO.

Instead, we get names like the Glide and the Touch. Much better.

Now it's your turn to help. To the right are the names HTC fans can vote on (Jovi, Zeal, Wildfire, or Festi), and we encourage you to go do so. But just for good measure, we've thrown in a few ideas of our own.

HTC, if you use any of the ones we've added, you owe us a beer.
