As reported elsewhere iPhone might be taken so how about us creative types at GZ come up with a new moniker. Personally, I think Apple should keep the 'Pod' and loose the 'i'. I am sick of the whole 'e' and 'i' thing there are 24 other letters in the alphabet! Some ideas from me:

CellPod
TelePod
MobPod
PodMobile
tPod
mPod
cPod
zPod (is that zee or zed?)
aPod
MyPod
Poddle
PodPod
JobPod
ApPod
TapPod
ScratchPod
VibraPod

That was a little brainfart Tony. The favourite from my own brain-pop-off was JobPod.

ThePhoneThatTelecomWishItCouldHaveButWon'tEverGet is probably the most honest name.

Sad but true, the phone may be **** but everyone will want one (cash cow for operators), just like the iPod which brings me to my name for the phone:

S***Brick

How about
-PDAwithAdecentWebbrowserForAchange
Man! That web browser was good looking. Why on earth dont we have something like that on pocket PC? Do we? All the ones ive seen are pretty much fixed to their resolution or akward with no zooming.
