1. Cisco vs. Apple
It’s been known for quite some time that Cisco owns the trademark, “iPhone”. And from Cisco’s blog, it looks like Apple knows this very well and negotiations to share the name had been going on. Yet, Apple seems to have decided to be the bad boy and launched its phone as “iPhone” anyway, without any agreement with Cisco.
Now let us sit tight and watch how this lawsuit drama unfolds.
2. User Installable Applications Not Allowed?
Dan from TUAW seems to be confused. Yes, Steve had mentioned “runs on OS X”, he had also mentioned “desktop-class applications”. But that does not mean the iPhone will run any apps installable on your Mac. It is no UMPC.
3. iPhone Will Require 2-Years Contract With Cingular
Cingular has confirmed this. You can’t buy an iPhone outright without the 2-years contract. How crappy, I live in Asia and was hoping to get it from US come June. I don’t need no Cingular line!
