Also at Google I/O, Google handed out unlocked Galaxy Nexus' to all attendees with their shwag. And THEN, we heard news of Apple begin granted a preliminary injunction that could ban the sale of that same phone in the US! This follows Judge Koh's similar judgement two days earlier banning sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The patent in question covers "core voice and search functionality." This injunction becomes effective once Apple ponies up a $95.6 million bond. Samsung appealed, and Reuters is reporting as of a few minutes ago that Judge Koh has denied that request.
This is a pretty big deal. Galaxy Nexus is a flagship phone. It's now one of only two official devices running the latest version of Android. And it's going to be illegal to sell it in the US.
Apple wasn't so lucky in calling for an import ban against HTC devices that they claim continue to infringe on their "data tapping" patent. This after the One X and EVO 4G LTE were held up in customs last May and then allowed to enter the US. Keep in mind that HTC said back in April that it would remove this infringing feature from all of their phones. We have yet to hear if or when that will actually happen.
