Quick, Batman! To the trademark-mobile along with a stack of three or four letter company names:

Feb 27 (Reuters) – On-demand business phone service provider Nuvio Corp said it filed a lawsuit against Garmin International Inc…alleging Garmin’s Nuvifone infringes on Nuvio trademark, which it uses on its phones and telephony services.

    “iPho” sounds like Apple’s version of a Vietnamese restaurant.
