Apple Trademarks iPhone

Apple has officially filed for the 'iPhone' trademark and analysts predict that the company will launch two hybrid iPod/mobile phone models, perhaps as soon as Macworld Expo, held in January 2007.

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

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

Apple's first foray into phones was a bit of a letdown. I will say that a truly decent iPhone - especially with WiFi - might be a good way to finally get me into the iPod family, although I'm pretty happy with my Nokia.
