Apple blazed out of the gate at Macworld touting its iPhone leaving a big question mark. Doesn't the iPhone name belong to Cisco. Yes, but... According to News.com's Tom Krazit Cisco and Apple have sealed a deal are apparently close to sealing a deal on the name.

Cisco calls CNET News.com reporter with a statement about Apple's use of the term "iPhone" for its new product. "Given Apple's numerous requests for permission to use Cisco's iPhone trademark over the past several years and our extensive discussions with them recently, it is our belief that with their announcement today, Apple intends to agree to the final document and public statements that were distributed to them last night and that address a few remaining items we expect to receive a signed agreement today."
