US courts ruled last week in favor of Apple by granting a preliminary injunction against Samsung's Google-designed smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus. The phone has since been pulled from the Google Play Store and Google is hurrying to put together a software patch to get around the ban.
The injunction centers around a patent which Apple holds pertaining to searching multiple areas for information, which can be on a device and elsewhere, through a single search interface. Google is already scrambling to put together an over the air patch to get around that problem.
Apple has also now posted the $96 million dollar bond required to begin the Galaxy Nexus injunction in earnest. It looks like a tough fight ahead. [The Verge]
