I think they made a deal of they use there products in the macs / new wifi ipod possibly.
I dont get it. So both Apple and Cisco can use the name Iphone for different products? How does that work?
I think the term iPhone is not so much a name for a single product, more so a range of devices under the Apple/Cisco branding...
Might be a perfect excuse for them to justify/raise the iPhone price by.. oh, another 50-100$
cisco probably made a killing off this.. they'll probably be able to get a lot more revenue from the interoperability with any of apple's products, than they would from selling the name to apple or forcing apple to change its name
There was some evidence to show that Cisco no longer had any rights over the iPhone brand. They breached some time limit regarding actual use of the name and by not using it, and then filing a dubious product with an 'iPhone' sticker as the only evidence of it being a physical product Apple were put in a strong position.....
What you mean THIS dubious product "with just some sticker"? What all seven of them?
This is true under European trademark laws, however in the US Cisco still held the rights to 'iPhone'; this is why Apple had to come an agreement...
Separate names with a comma.
