They are reaching a monetary agreement for Apple to own the name there, so, "no" to your question. They are selling it, not losing it.

"Apple started the controversy, their first step was to file a lawsuit, they didn't previously approach the company."

Wow Apple. How does that feel now? 40% of phones sold in Mexico during that time could come up to a lot of $$$

I like this ;)

It's barely a drop in the bucket for Apple, and in all reality, the iPhone isn't flying off shelves in Mexico with it's price-point.

U might correct, but bad news like this will hurt and affect theirs stock prices. How much money do u think they will lose if it keeps dropping and lower then 400US? Or maybe back to 300US, from where they were, before iPhone success and all those billions in theirs bankaccount will be gone in no time.

Dude, you are the ultimate fanboy.

iFone was owned in Mexico long before Apple even made their version of a phone, as was the iPhone name in Brazil.

Take off the blinders, maybe we can all pitch in and get you a pair of Google Glass for a change...
