Apple and Cisco call time-out on iPhone

Apple and Cisco issued a joint statement regarding the ongoing iPhone dispute between the two firms.

The companies have agreed to delay procedures to give time for a consensus deal outside of court.

"Apple and Cisco have agreed to extend the time for Apple to respond to the lawsuit to allow for discussions between the companies with the aim of reaching agreement on trademark rights and interoperability."

It is known that Apple was negotiating to secure rights to the iPhone name until the day before the product was introduced at Macworld Expo.

On the product's announcement Cisco took action against Apple citing trademark misuse. Apple has characterised Cisco's action as "silly" and said it is "confident" it will prevail in the case.
