Whose iPhone!?

Any five years old kid knows that Apple products have that "i" thing in their names, iBook, iPhoto, iPod,, iTunes, etc. And the same five years old kid, can guess the name Apple is going to use with their new mobile phones, yes, you are right ... it's called iPhone for sure.
But you know what, Cisco (Linksys) are having a VoIP (Voice over IP) phone, and they call it iPhone too. They are real jerks I know, and guess what, they are going to sue Apple for using *their* registered iPhone trademark.
On Wednesday, Cisco announced it had filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Apple, Inc., which it said seeks to prevent Apple from infringing upon and deliberately copying and using Cisco's registered iPhone trademark.

I think the whole iStuff thing is registered to Apple in the first place, and Cisco are the ones who are supposed to call their product anything else.
