Apple applies for iPhone trademark, analysts heat up the atmosphere


Apple watchers are interested to note that the company has officially applied for the ‘iPhone’ trademark, as analysts predict that the company will launch two hybrid iPod/mobile phone models, perhaps as early as Macworld Expo 2007 (January). .

A report in Forbes cites new research from Prudential Equity analyst Jesse Tortora. The analyst claims that the company is preparing to release such two devices, basing his information on “sources” and “recent checks”.

It predicts both a smart phone and a slim music phone, the report explains. One of these models will include wireless connectivity (WiFi) and a keyboard for messaging.

Recent rumors have speculated that the company will launch the phones in conjunction with US mobile network operator Cingular. More recently, T-Mobile CEO Robert Dotson said that Apple’s OS “represents the future of next-generation mobile networks.”
