Yesterday, we told you how Apple has been surreptitiously filing trademark requests for "iPad" — but doing so everywhere except the US of A, because Fujitsu already had their own filing for the name.
Turns out the House of Jobs isn't happy about that situation at all. As you can see from the above documents (click each to view full-size), Apple has been filing notices of opposition with the Trademark Office, starting last September. Which means that either (a) they really are planning to call their tablet device the iPad, or (b) they just don't want Fuji to release anything with a name that sounds like "iPod."
Note, too, that these filings are not specific complaints about Fujitsu's trademark, merely requests for time to assemble arguements against the name. And, based on the image below, Fujitsu's iPad is some kind of handheld retail inventory device.
So the question remains: do you want to play games, read e-books, and rock out to your MP3's — or do you want to count cans of soup on a supermarket shelf? One way or another, there'll be an iPad for that.
