    I think it will be iPod something. Like "iPod cellular" or maybe something more like "iPod talk"

    Nah. It's too long, and it doesn't blend. I think it'll be iSomething.

    iPod Mobile and iChat Mobile roll off the tongue nicely.

    How about just the Apple iPhone? I think that, if and when it is released, it will get more coverage that a VoIP phone from Cisco, and i think we shouldnt change what we call it. If you wanna talk about the Cisco one, say that thats what it is.

    But this could cause a bit of a dillemma in some places...

    Sure, but I think both are kind of bad names.
    iPod Mobile - The iPod is just as mobile as the iPod Mobile would be.
    iChat Mobile - This would really only make sense if iChat was given some sort of phone integration, to allow you to call people on their phone lines.

    It's a whole new product line.

    It's not an iPod. It has iPod functionality.
    So having an i infront of the name isn't really necessary.
    It's not a mac. It's a hand held device.

    I don't think it'll be any of these names.

    I have a feeling it'll be something totally different and will be a new brand name in the apple world.

    AirPhone or AirConnect. It would be nice to let AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express play with the other kids. ;)

    There's already a product called iVoice. Its an iPod speaker similar to the Bose Sound Dock.

    As for the Apple phone I kind of like iMobile.

    It will take on the iPod brand or the Mac brand, none of the others like iCell (no one in europe calls it a cellphone, over here it is a mobile) or iCall, iTell will have a chance.

    iZune.

    Since no one has ever bought a Zune there won't be any legal problems.

    iCorder [/startrek]

    i am sick and tired of the whole iAnything naming convention personally. they should just call it the apple phone.

    but they will call it the iPod Phone
