Cisco settles their lawsuit with Apple over the name iPhone

Big news of the day: Cisco who filled a lawsuit against Apple have agreed to allow Apple to share the name "iPhone" for their new upcoming mobile phone. But both companies wants to now explore on "interoperability" to work together to make the two technologies work together.

"The companies said Apple will be allowed to use the name in exchange for exploring wide-ranging interoperability between the companies' products in the areas of security, consumer and business communications."

Officials from both companies didn't comment further on the announcement.

"No other details of the agreement were released, and representatives from both companies declined to comment beyond their short joint statement."

Cisco whole filled the lawsuit last month in San Francisco federal court when they threatened to demolish Apple's use of the name "iPhone" for their new multipurpose mobile gadget. The Apple iPhone is planned to go on sale in June with a retail price starting at $499.

"Cisco has been using the trademark since last spring on a line of Linksys phones that make free long-distance calls over the Internet using a technology called Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP."

So what this mean for the Apple iPhone? Well Apple can keep the name and Cisco can now gain from the introduction of Apple iPhone by integrating their linksys iPhones and technolgy with the Apple iPhone and take the market-share with apple.

Take the Meizu M8 phone for instance, which with all due respect, is a nice looking piece of device but somewhat looks like the Apple iPhone.

According to some guy who appeared at Meizu offcial company's forum claiming to be the CEO of Meizu said that the M8 is not a copy of iPhone. In fact the company is trying to change the design so that it doesn't look an iPhone. But I don't see any evidence of that. Here are the two devices shown together…
