    Thought of iTel, iCel could also work, but its a bit old school. Or just plain and simple, the iPod Phone, doesnt exactly take a marketing genius to think of that, but it would still leech off the iPods success. (and there is a lot to leech from)
    Well there are just a few

    I think it will have iPod in the name, so they have iPod shuffle, iPod nano, so why not iPod Mobile

    I suspect it'll something like iPod Phone (to leverage the ipod connections and justify the unsubsidized price, if they go the unlocked route).

    I'm not that bothered what it's called, let's face it macbook is an awful name. I still bought one.

    iCon has been suggestd, but I think it sounds like someone who just did time in the slammer.

    iComm has also been mentioned.

    iCall, but it just doesn't sound right. I would vote for the iChat Mobile.

    In America most people still refer to them as "cell phones" instead of just "phones".

    You're right... we really don't need to be able to call it anything when discussing it, because God knows know one will be discussing it anymore... now that you've decreed that we don't care.

    Thanks for making this easier on all of us.
