Of course, Cisco wants a piece of the pie. They had the name a long time ago but nobody cared about it. Suddenly knowing that Apple was going to release their phones a some point very soon, they release their IPhone.

I still believe that Apple will change the name to something else before release and basically leave Cisco in the dust.

I am not saying Apple was not asking for it but for goodness sake, the product is not even shipping yet.
