The Wall Street Journal (via MacDailyNews) has confirmed an arrangement between Apple and Cingular Wireless in the US. The WSJ has been accurate in the past with Macworld Eve scoops.

That's if it's called iPhone!

The WSJ is the most credible source yet. It doesn't just publish any old hearsay.

Accurate in the past doesn't really = confirmation in my books.

Although it does seem that the iPhone/Apple Phone is going to be one of the big things over the next few days, at least according to a lot of the rumors.

I find it unlikely Apple would use the same name for both a hardware and a software product, but who knows.

The iPod cachet is too good not to use. iPod mobile? iPod extreme? iPod chat?

I quite like "MacPhone" but mac is used for pc related products. iMobile is good but in the USA it would have to be iCell .. The whole point is for the mobile to play music so ipod has to be in the title. ipod phone it is!

Apple was pro when everybody was using the "e" when naming computer related products in the 90's and they chose "i", now they might start to move away from the "i" .. Which they have already started - eg "macbook"
