I agree with the other commentators saying Apple is 'out of line'. I'm all for whatever corporation protecting their brand, however, all within reason. I mean, by Apple's logic the Pope should sue Apple for using the 'apple'.

I'm not Mexican, but I know that "fone" can be translated to "phone" in some languages. Calm down and go outside

You don't write "phocking" like this, you write "fucking" with an " F ", of course it makes sense to spell it iFone. It's English that's phonetically incorrect and not written they way it's pronounced, idiot!

well iFone is way way more similar to iPhone then in the following cases where Apple sued a online grocery store for similar logo http://www.webpronews.com/apple-sues-online-grocery-store-over-its-logo-2012-09 or the Small German Cafe for the logo http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2055869/German-cafe-Apfelkind-logo-dispute-Apple.html if anyone fancies more google NYC GO GREEN

And just to be clear Apple didnt lose the "iPhone" trademark. they lost the action of preventing some other company use a similar name
