Couldn't Apple change the name to EyePhone?

One way to look at this is that Apple chose the name iPhone to get attention and instant brand recognition. If they had to change the name, they've already got the public's attention and most people wouldn't find it too difficult following the product to the new name.

Or they're just going to fight it in courts or pay a wedge of money - the potential revenue from the iPhone is big methinks.
