We are two days away from the announcement of this baby and Apple is still playing Chicken with the trademark for it.
1) Are there to be two products? A larger iSlate and a smaller iPad? Ten-inch and seven-inch?
2) Has Apple knocked out the foreign trademark filings, leaving only Fujitsu left in America to overturn?
3) Does this mean we won’t be seeing this product on sale for at least several weeks? It will take time to etch the final name on the back of the product!
Here it is, the latest iPad trademark filing. Frustratingly, this did not pop up on Friday when I did a sweep of TESS — which included the iPad filings!
Notice this is now a third beard company Apple has set up: “IP Application Development.” That’s in addition to iGuide and Slate Computing!
I have highlighted interesting items in bold blue.
