More Chatter About Apple's iPhone ... But Don't Call It "iPhone"

As I have written previously, the anticipation for a major iPhone announcement by Apple at the upcoming Macworld conference continues -- Nick Wingfield and Amol Sharma write a feature story about this in today's (December 22) Wall Street Journal on page C1, titled "Waiting on Apple Cellphone Call."

But, surprisingly, don't expect this new combined cell phone/digital music player to be called "iPhone." In a fiendishly clever move, Cisco has taken that name for itself and launched its own family of Internet phones earlier this week under the "iPhone" name.
