If all the previous iPhone evidence wasn't enough to convince you that the iPhone is coming sometime next year, perhaps this trademark may be the ticket. Apple's just filed a trademark in a "Far Eastern" trademark office for the iPhone, which is described as "handheld and mobile digital electronic devices for the sending and receiving of telephone calls, faxes, electronic mail, and other digital data; MP3 and other digital format audio players."
Apple first tried to file this in March of '06 with a nation off the coast of South America, but apparently didn't have as much luck there as it did last month. Like always, there are barely any details, but it seems like the device probably won't be VoIP and will be smart enough to send emails.
