Samsung Galaxy Nexus banned in the US

Samsung Galaxy Nexus banned in the US, Due to infringes 4 Apple patents

Galaxy Nexus ban

After targeting the Galaxy Nexus, first Smartphone to get the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the New Google Smart Voice search which looks more like Siri, Apple has just been granted a temporary injunction to ban Galaxy Nexus sales in the United States. US Court ruled against Samsung in the patent case, which was initiated in February, but gets its first ruling just now.

Google Smart voice search

U.S. Judge Lucy Koh decided that Samsung has infringed 4 patents belong to Apple, although one specific patent weighs in towards this decision which basically refers to a device being able to search multiple sources through a single interface (Apple's Siri).

The rest of the patents Apple accuses Samsung (and Google) of infringing are patent 5,946,647 (actionable linking), patent 8,046,721 (slide-to-unlock) and patent 8,074,172 (touch screen word suggestion).
