Rename that iPhone Challenge

Rename that iPhone Challenge




Apple already knew that Cisco owns the trademark for iPhone. It’s been under Cisco since way back 1996. I guess when rumors about Apple going out with their own mobile phone, Cisco made its move and released a cheap VoIP phone last quarter and used their iPhone trademark. Cisco is a $176 billion dollar company so I don’t think this was about more money again.

Apple iPhone

Now that Cisco is bringing Apple to court, they either settle amicably and do some licensing agreement or Steve Jobs has to think of another name for the iPhone.


 

Why don’t we help him out and think of really creative ones (not that they don’t have enough creative people on their payroll):

  • Apple Phone (ain’t that easy?)
  • MobiPod
  • iCall (someone else owns that TM? Maybe they could buy it.)
  • NoKeeYah
  • Apple Mobile iPalm

Any more suggestions? *hehehe*

    iMobile IMO would fit better to its functionality

  8. DannyBoy says:

    Bacause it costs too much… ArayPhone!

    Because it prohibits you from buying anything else… I say… KaPhone!

    Because you’ll shell out 40K, perhaps… TaPhone!

  15. jayvee f. says:

    Brazened Prediction: It will be called the iPod.

  16. pinoy says:

    It should be called

    iMfilipino

  17. id say they call it a MacPhone.. similar to the MacBook ;)

  18. j4s0n says:

    Whatever name, Apple knows they’ll get sued. Steve Jobs took the risk, i don’t see any alternative for the iPhone name. It’s the perfect name for it. Apple just took for, what? The lawsuit issue’s another publicity thing to boost iPhone’s popularity, they can buy the iPhone trademark for billions and earn more from their revolutionary phone.

    My thoughts right now are getting iSomething.com domains, thinking what Apple would do next with their “i” brand.

    hahaha!

  19. Miguel says:

    Or do you think Apple can afford to buy the trademark from Cisco? (If that is how it works.)

    Whatever… as far as mobile developers are concerned, it’s the OS X Mobile/Safari Phone!

  20. Ron says:

    iwidge has a nice ring to it.

  21. j4s0n says:

    Trademark can’t be bought? OK… forgive my innocence. In anyway of acquiring, or winning on the lawsuit or whatever.

    Anyway, you’re right! OS X :D

  22. AJ says:

    since the finger will replace the stylus, how about

    iFinger

  23. bakerBoy says:

    IPhone… change it ti I-taPhone…

    No offense sa mga maka steve jobs diyan pero di kagandahan ang iphone. hindi 3g, 2 megapix lang… ang mga intsik ay inaantok sa mga kayang gawin nito… kung mag iiPhone ka, mag treo ka nalang. sensiya na… di ko talaga makita yung punchline sa phone na yan

  24. visitorj says:

    mao gyud.. i have the strong feeling nga lalabas pa sila ng mas maganda pa sa iphone.. pero ano kaya ang susunod nila na ipapangalan sa mas bunggacious pa nilang phone? heheeh hirap ngang palitan eah… pero surely, hindi ko talaga feel yong style ng iphone.. Mas mabuti sana kung merong button nang katulad ng style ng iMac keyboard nila (black/white-flat keyboard)… I like it eh…looks so hi-tech… ano kaya sa paningin nyo?
