    I think one of the articles about the Cisco situation mentioned that Apple had registered iPhone in several countries outside the U.S. I didn't check, so I don't know if Canada is one of them, and if it is, when they registered it.

    you have to rememeber that Canda law is different and it could be even is apple filed first they do not have the trade market on iPhone because they did not get a product out in enough time and the other company did and apple can easily lose this case.

    To be really honest, what does a name matter? The product itself defines a reputation, the name however, does not. How about :apple: phone.

    I think Apple wanted to get away from the :apple: in the iTunes/iPod world of products.

    Still gets a little tangled with the Apple vs. Apple music lawsuit.

    May end up the iPod Phone or the iTunes Phone.

    Edit: of course the Apple TV may mean that old problem is close to resolved.
