Clearwire directors put off a vote until June 13 to decide whether to accept Sprint Nextel's buyout offer following DISH Network's aggressive $4.40 a share bid that topped Sprint Nextel's recent sweetener by $1 a share. DISH's new bid threatens to throw a monkey wrench into Sprint's attempt to complete both its purchase of Clearwire and a merger with SoftBank. Sprint shareholders are now scheduled to vote on the Japanese carrier's 70% buyout deal June 12.
