The name of the next Android superphone is...

If you've been looking for another way to procrastinate, the Android Phone Name Generator is a pretty entertaining option for cell phone fans.

Is what you see in the image, the "Sony Ericsson Atrix Black Z Plus Prime," the name of a phone or an American Gladiator ?

Sadly, this is a question I've asked myself before, as cell phone names have become a bit ridiculous these days. It appears that I'm not the only one who feels this way either because a company called YinzCam has come up with an entertaining way to poke fun at phone-naming schemes.

The Android Phone Name Generator is a simple site that randomly generates names based on existing Android phones. Some of my favorites include the Samsung Amaze Neo Z II G1, the Motorola Hero Neo, and the Sony Ericsson Motivate Black One. There are also some that I could actually see becoming real names, such as the Samsung Nexus Touch.

To be fair, the process of naming cell phones isn't a particularly easy one, but still, there had to be better options than these , right?
