It's the other iPhone.

Not long ago, Apple and Cisco were headed for a blockbuster showdown in court over the iPhone -- the name, that is. As it turns out, Cisco already held the iPhone trademark. After some very public sparring earlier this year, however, the two companies agreed to share the iPhone moniker.

The result: the Cisco iPhone, a cordless Internet phone from the company's Linksys division that enables cheap Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls -- something Apple's device does not.

Something else that the Cisco version isn't: sleek or touchscreen.
