“A court said Monday it would delay by one day a ruling that has pitted cell phone operators T-Mobile and Vodafone against each other over the sale of an unlocked version of Apple Inc.’s popular iPhone,” The Associated Press reports.

“The Hamburg District Court had been scheduled to rule Monday on an appeal by T-Mobile, part of Deutsche Telekom AG (Charts), that forced the company to sell an unlocked version of the combination smart phone-iPod media player that can be used on other networks besides its own,” AP reports. “But the court said a ruling was now expected to be announced Tuesday afternoon.”
