    I think it will not be a issue. Because i see many domain with ipadblognews, iphonenews etc. So that will not be a problem

    I don't think they will sue you however you may have to take it down,

    My main question is will google/amazon etc still accept it for traffic with no problems.

    Google, amazon etc will do nothing unless the manufacturer/brand owner request to them to take down your site from their listing. Therefore be nice to the brand owner, promote their products in good way and you'll have no problem.

    You will find many old domain/site specific to a product in google serp and have adsense or amazon. Of course you have to bear the risk of losing everything if somehow the brand owner decide to take down your site for whatever reason.
