Listener e-mail from Jay:

I can't really answer the question of the week chosa posed for 
*favorite* terrible Android phone names as I don't particularly pay 
attention to the market outside of what y'all discuss on the show, but I 
do have a list of prepaid phones my store offers with truly awful names, 
which I foolishly took note of in the vain hope that I could find a dirt 
cheap phone that I could install LineageOS on to play around with.
