Cisco iPhone trademark and Apple


One of the things that had me most puzzled during the Apple iPhone unveiling was the fact that Apple knew that the iPhone name was not only trademarked by Cisco but that they were using it for their newly launched line of VOiP devices.

Terms of this agreement have not been disclosed and Apple has not made any comment (yet) in regards to this story.
