Just an excuse to drop the name?

Maybe they don't want the name?

I mean, if Linksys had the trademark for years and even released a phone called iPhone before they even announced theirs, it's rather unlikely that the brand's ownership would change hands.

On the other hand I can perfectly foresee Jobs on stage, for the release of the iP*** jokingly mentioning that they couldn't use iPhone because it's used by THAT crap made by linksys.
