    What do you call the BlackBerry notification icon?


    The BlackBerry notification icon is a very important part of the everyday BlackBerry user. We see it from the time we wake up in the morning, to the time we hit the sack in the evening. Coupled with the blinking red light, the BlackBerry notification icon is what signals and reminds us to check our BlackBerry phones for BBM messages, emails, app updates and more.

    Have you ever wondered, what is the official name for the icon? I've heard it called the "red asterisk," "red star" and "bb orb," just to name a few. The most common titles that I've heard used amongst the BlackBerry community, are the BlackBerry "splat" and "spark." I've even heard it called the "BBM icon," even though it's not exclusive to BBM notifications.

    I already know what the official name is given to the notification icon by those within BlackBerry internal, but I'm curious to see what the Team BlackBerry community has to say about this. So I'm putting it to a poll (see above, only desktop users can see poll) and asking all of you to vote for what you call the BlackBerry notification icon. If your choice is not listed, please tell us in the comments below!

    There is an official name for it. I'll update this thread with the name once we get enough votes.
