    Now that release of the so-called iPhone is supposedly near, I have to say that it cannot be called an iPhone, even if such a phone were released. Why? Because iPhone is already a product that was released in 1999 by InfoGear. It's basically a huge home phone that connected to the internet, took messages, organized email, and phone calls, without having to own a computer. Based on this, Apple will probably hold off on the release till they can think of a snazzy name, or buy the trademark or something. Here's a picture:

    1. apple is creative, and knows their stuff. They already knew about this.
    2. If apple wanted to buy the iPhone trademark they already have and made
    company since a NDA, to not say anything.
    3. Apple is a bunch of creative people, if they couldnt buy the trademark,
    then they though of a name already.

    That may or may not stop them from using it. If the product is not similar enough or not being manufactured anymore they could potentially still use it.

    I hope they think of something snazzier than the predictable iPhone anyways. :)
