Apple iPhone Early Next Year?

Speculation is rife that Apple Computer is going to launch two iPhone models early next year. There are reports doing the rounds that the company has officially filed for the "iPhone" trademark.

The two iPhone models include a smart phone and a slim music phone that will be launched in conjunction with Cingular, a US mobile network operator. One of the models will include wireless (WiFi) connectivity, and a keyboard for messaging.

Reportedly, the Apple trademark filed under a South East Asian trademark on 15 September, includes several categories, such as music player, mobile phone, and video game machine.

According to reports, the smart phone version is under development for over 12 months now, and has been successful in overcoming ample challenges including design, interference, battery life, and other technical glitches.
