Though I don't agree that Apple sued that company. But this coming from someone who lives in Mexico, I think it's a dumb the mexican court decided in favor of iFone (like I said, I don't agree that Apple sued them in 2009). But come on, you don't pronouce iFone and iPhone the same. It's not apple's fault, those who have english as their second language pronouce iPhone like iFone and think of the same thing. One is an english word, the other a spanish word. There is a slight pronunciation from that.
Who in their right mind (unless obviously being a huge fanboy) would say "I think it's a dumb the mexican court decided in favor of iFone". Seriously?
And that's THE WHOLE POINT, the brand doesn't even sound the same but still Apple decided to sue because of the similarities of the name. Apple was just trying to be a bully and they are getting exactly what they deserve. Plain AND simple.
