Apple files US trademark for ‘Mobile Me’

Apple has filed to trademark the phrase “Mobile Me” for use in a wide range of businesses, furthering speculation it could introduce an iPod phone, reports Reuters. “We believe this is further indication of (Apple’s) strategic direction to extend its iPod + iTunes and Mac franchises into new business areas including smart phones, value-added mobile content services, and the broader consumer electronics space,” American Technology Research analyst Shaw Wu wrote in a note on Thursday. “The areas that the trademark covers include computing devices, mobile devices, and mobile services including digital music, video, games, e-mail, and messaging across Internet, intranets, extranets, television, cellular, and satellite networks, the filing shows,” notes the report. Apple, naturally, has declined comment.
