How long have they been out for now? And all of a sudden… hmmm, take the money and shut up, Apple would searched for any holder of the name before releasing it as it's called now. The Chinese having a winge I think…

If you read TFA (assuming that it's accurate) then you'll see that Apple were aware of the existing clash of trademarks, and even tried to transfer the name to themselves.

It's a company that's in financial trouble. They are trying to score out of apple. There was a previous article giving the history if it. They sold their original iPad name world wide for $55000 in 2006, but they didn realize it was apple that bought it and they're now claiming they didnt sell it in china and it's a clearcut case if trying to score out of it. Apple have won a temporary injunction against this in the interim along with a court order preventing them selling the name in china.
