IIRC, the name TMote came about essentially for trademark issues. Because the Telos designs were open, anyone could produce them and sell them as Telos (e.g., as Crossbow, KET, etc. do). Moteiv wanted to distinguish their particular iterations and improvements to the Telos design, so rebranded them as TMotes.
