Isn't the iPhone one of Apple's trademarks?

Apple will need to change their iPhone to iCall or iWasteMyTime :D

Yeah, thats what I was thinking. I'm sure I've heard that somewhere before.

Apparantly not - Cisco/Linksys have had it trademarked since the early 90's...
so it looks like the iPhone isn't going to be called the iPhone after all.

Mind you - this is a VOIP phone. Could the iPhone name still be used for a mobile phone?
