Apple is granted two preliminary injunctions in one week; opponents are apoplectic
FORTUNE — Google (GOOG) made no public comment Friday after Judge Lucy Koh granted Apple (AAPL) a preliminary injunctionagainst the Samsung Galaxy Nexus — a touchscreen cellphone whose hardware and software were jointly developed by Google and Samsung engineers.
It was the second ban on an Android-based Samsung device in a week (see here), and the first to strike directly at a Google-branded product. It came eight months after the Galaxy Nexus was unveiled at Google and Samsung’s “Ice Cream Sandwich” event in Hong Kong and three days after Google gave 6,000 copies of the phone to attendees at its “Jelly Bean” developers conference in San Francisco.
