BERLIN (AP) - Apple says it has disabled the push email function for its mobile devices in Germany in an ongoing patent dispute with rival Motorola.

Apple Inc. said Friday the disabling of the push service, which sends messages automatically to the devices as soon as they’re received rather than waiting for the device to refresh its email, will affect customers using MobileMe and iCloud email.

Apple says those customers can still receive email using other settings.

A Mannheim court ruled earlier this month that Apple had infringed upon a Motorola patent on push email technology.

Apple says it believes its patent is valid and is appealing the decision.
