    The Register predicted a Monday announcement of the iPhone, which they certainly got. However, the iPhone was not the rumored Apple one...The iPhone is a new Linksys phone. The WIP320 and CIT400 both connect to DECT and Skype. However, the $200 WIP320 does so using 802.11G wireless technology, while the $180 CIT400 uses cordless technology. There should still be Apple iPhone announcement at Steve Jobs' annual "launchathon" at the Macworld Expo, hopefully under a different name then the already copyrighted "iPhone".

    The first picture is the WIP320, and the second is the CIT400.

    you don't patent names, you copyright them. factoid: they've had "iPhone" registered since 1994.

    Thanks for that advice, I'm slowly relearning my grammar and spelling (with Firefox's built in spell checker as a side kick) :).
