Looks like Apple’s new iPhone is becoming a legal hot potato. First, Cisco threatens to sue Apple over the use of “iPhone”; and now Nortel could have some issues about Apple’s use of the term “Visual Voicemail”, according to The Register. Nortel sells a product using “Visual Voicemail” within its Voice Office Applications Suitem and it provides a visual display of a voice mail, which can be played using an IP phone supplied by Nortel “So in principal, it works exactly the same as the Visual Voicemail facility built into Apple’s new iPod phone”, The Register said.
