I never saw Apple and Cisco coming together on this one because, well, they're Apple and Cisco. This is why I suggested that Apple will call the thing iPod Phone. I was wrong there, but …
Now that Apple is Apple, Inc. not Apple Computer, Inc. – we got some more options for the phone.
Cisco and Apple are playing chicken here. They're looking to see who will blink first. The not perfect reviews that iPhone is getting has given Cisco a little more backbone. This will go one for awhile.
It would be very easy for Apple to start changing their naming strategy to meet their new company name. We already have Apple TV. Apple Phone wouldn't be that big of a jump.
You read it here first.
