Did anyone notice the phone doesn't seem to have the name on it.

I saw the Cingular logo on it, but no iPhone. So maybe this is just to play around with Cisco, get a bit of controversy, then quietly change the name. I mean everyone knows about this phone now.

Heck they could call it "PowerPhone", and in two years time everyone will be appending "Power" to the names of their products. I mean, the iName thingy is distinctively Apple. Everyone and their grandmother knows that.

Just call it the MacPhone Apple. There you have it, anyone taking bets on the final name.
