this just prove how far apple will go to get what they want. also proves they want to control all stuff related to phone or any close to what their branding stands for.

US: huge win
UK: solid loss
Mexico: predictable loss, but nothing wrong with trying litigate them into bankruptcy or force a favorable sale of rights to Apple.
Germany: solid win
China: small loss, bought the name rights for iPad for a paltry $60 million

Calling this stuff IP is a joke - it makes much more sense in a trademark context and there the rights to the name require both a likelihood of confusion and actual use in the market, not whether you invented/used it first. Since I haven't seen on Google WTF an "iFone" actually is, it's hard to say whether Apple was really just litigating as a negotiating tactic, or if this is a case of homecooking by a Mexican court.

Air Power Vector, for the man that has climbed to the peak and wants to look down on the beaten and defeated opponents left in his wake.
