If this isn’t a confirmation from Stevie Jobs, I don’t know what is (Okay, maybe that’s a stretch). Apple has waltzed into a trademark office in the Far East, and has successfully (it seems) filed a trademark for the iPhone. Back in March, the electronics giant tried filing a trademark “with a nation off the coast of South America” and it is rumoured they were given a big fat no.
Although it is feasible that Apple is just covering their bases and preventing other companies from using the iPhone name, we have no real reason to believe that they are not working on an iPhone. After all, the application calls for “handheld and mobile digital electronic devices for the sending and receiving of telephone calls, faxes, electronic mail, and other digital data; MP3 and other digital format audio players.”
