It appears that Apple has been at least temporarily successful with their injunction, as the Galaxy Nexus is now listed at "Coming Soon" in the Google Play Store...

It's not just Android that sells more than one phone. Microsoft and RIM sell multiple phones. Also WP allows a greater level of customization. I'm not saying Apple needs a ton of phones, 3 or 4 is a good number. That way they can appeal to more users. And as far as customization goes. Apple should keep its locked down environment, they just need to create something like widgets or live tiles. No custom launchers.

I am an android Fan, but not the hardcore type. but... EVEN if i hate apple, i wont tell others to get android :) ultimately, its YOUR own choice on what OS and what phone you want. :) UNBIASED ANDROID FANS FTW!

I maybe wrong (plz correct me if I am) but this whole universal search thing is kinda weird to me. Samsung and Google are making this update to only allow Google search to search the web but on the original evo I almost positive that the voice search app could search the web, texts, make calls, etc. Isn't that more or less the same thing? If so why did apples injunction for the one x/evo lte get declined? Why only the gnex?

I don't get it either. Siri came out a year ago and Android has been doing universal search since it came out in 2008. Why was this patent even issued to Apple if it already existed? Siri uses Google for its universal searches, so if Google isn't allowed to use it, how would that effect Siri?

Talking about stealing ideas, how about launching the camera application from the lock screen sound to you apple?
What about notification bar?
Hope Google/Samsung choke you to death.

And that would be the smart thing to do.
Apple's actions and silly legal games will just kick the customers away.
I had some respect for apple in the past, but not any more.

Life is a wheel.. you'll be on the top, but you'll definitely roll down to the dirt again..
Look at RIM, look at Nokia, look at Motorola..

well, apple is on top now.. :)

Soon.. Soon..

Thank god I live in the UK where such broad and ridiculous patents are not handed out like free biscuits. You would never see such things like this happen in the UK... I feel sorry for the US where consumers have no say... You have s**tty laws and carriers etc

the only thing stopping me from apple is the screen size. it's just too small for my eyesight I tried it out at their store.
