yesno

Yeah, Apple never had any intention of calling the phone "iPhone." The bloggers pretty much made that up. Maybe "iPod Phone." Even "iTV" for their upcoming set-top box is just a placeholder name. The "iWhatever" is all pretty much done. They do have iTunes and iPhoto and iMovie and their new productivity suite is called iWork but newer software out of Apple has had more normal names. (Pages, Keynote, Garageband, Aperture.)

Trivia:

The "i" in iMac orginally stood for "internet." Doesn't make too much sense now.

"iPod" was a trademark Apple owned back from the 1990s. It was a canned internet kiosk project. They picked it for the music player because they didn't want to come up with some new name.
