Android phones, loveable as they may be, are idiotically named. Names like Wildfire Incredible, Sensation, Vigor, Touch, Skyrocket and Pro taint otherwise decent phones. Where do Android phone makers come up with this stuff? Why, from condoms! It turns out, condoms and Android phones share more than just intimate utility, they’re actually named the same too.

Check out the list from the Intercom Blog, who hilariously cooked up a graph of Android phones and condoms that use the same silly and pointless name. There are so many similarities that you half expect an Ultra Thin Android phone or a Rezound condom.

But, seriously, people who make condoms and/or Android phones, no one buys your condom or Android phone for the name. In fact, your naming pattern probably confuses the heck out of people. A Her Pleasure Trojan XL Extra Thin Super Orgasmic Purple Flavoured Condom is just a condom. A Hero Optimus Amaze Droid Galaxy Captivate Orange Fascinate Android phone is just an Android phone.

Or well, they can be both. [Intercom Blog]
