Looks like Samsung and Motorola have been hanging out at the local trademark office again, as both companies have registered names of some upcoming devices.

Samsung registered three new names (because we know how much they love to release at least one new Galaxy device every month week): the Galaxy Metrix, Velvet, and Legend (cough HTC cough). Aside from that, we only know that all three names were registered as "goods and services: mobile telephones, smartphones." Surprise, surprise.


Motorola also trademarked the name of an upcoming device: the "Electrify Icon," which can be assumed to be a sequel to last year's Electrify smartphone (aka Photon 4G). Like the three Galaxy devices, Moto also categorized the name under "goods and services: mobile phones, smartphones."

    *sigh* Android naming conventions are so ridiculous. This chart just seems more and more relevant.

    Galaxy Velvet sounds so stupid...
