Apple-Cisco iPhone agreement still hanging

Wanted to point out a correction on a post I had yesterday. The post made it sound like the Apple-Cisco iPhone agreement over the name was a done deal. That was wrong and I jumped the gun. 

Cisco pinged me to point out the error and I clarified the previous post

As for the current status, Cisco is still waiting for paperwork from Apple. You'd think Apple would dot the "i's" before the Macworld keynote. 

A Cisco spokesman says in an email today:

The fact is that we have not received the approved agreement back from Apple as late as this morning. What we said in our statement, which you posted, was that we sent them the final terms on Jan. 8 and by the fact that they launched the iPhone on Jan. 9 without an agreement in place with us, we could only assume that they had agreed to our final terms and that we expected a signed agreement from them as early as yesterday. As of this morning, we're still waiting.
 
I regret the mix up.
