This is what Google gets for partnering with Samsung. Samsung has been ripping off Apple over and over and over, and I'm glad they finally have to pay for it. Be a Nokia, be an HTC, don't sit around and be Apple and not expect to pay consequences.
HOWEVER, the Galaxy Nexus should not be a product banned for this, especially over a software concern. The box, design, and feel of the device is nothing at all like an iPhone. Ban the Galaxy II, Tabs, whatever but the Nexus is a differentiated device.
I'm sure if Samsung was doing the same thing to Apple though, this forum would be jumping in glee. Let's not be angry, arrogant fanboys.
