Apple Registers iPhone Trademark

Apple Computer seems to have registered for a trademark (#930990) in Australia for the name of "iPhone":

The iPhone.org domain has been registered by Apple for years... spawning much speculation. But other unused domains - such as iKids.com, Mammals.org and MacMate.com have also pointed to Apple's site for years.



Owner details are limited to simply "Apple Computer, Inc" from Australia's Trademark search -- no names/addresses to verify the identity.



Steve Jobs has previously downplayed the likelyhood of a future Apple PDA, but has pointed towards cellphone integration being the future.

wild and crazy thought: what if the ipod was upgraded, and instead of being a combo cell phone, was just a wireless enabled pda with VoIP?:eek: wouldn't have much coverage though...:( sigh...maybe some day (like when we all go to work in flying cars)
