Blast from the past: Mobile Me Trademark Filing

Going through the archives of Ars Technica the other day, I discovered an article that revealed Apple’s trademark filing of the “Mobile Me” name, dated January 2006.

Last week, Apple filed four applications with the US Patent and Trademark Office for the term “Mobile Me.” According to the filings, Mobile Me relates to a number of goods and services, including “telecommunication services for the dissemination of information by mobile telephone, namely the transmission of data to mobile telephones” along with “music players,” “digital video players,” “MP3 players,” and “software related thereto.”

It is quite interesting to see that Apple filed the trademark more than two years before announcing the product (at WWDC 2008), or indeed before they announced the iPhone in January 2007. Was Mobile Me slated for an earlier release? Tell us what you think in the comment section or email us. – r.
