Apple must wait until final verdict in US trial

Samsung clinched an important win late Friday after Northern District of California Judge Lucy Koh denied Apple's call for a preliminary ban on key Android devices. The San Jose court told Apple that the Droid Charge, Galaxy S 4G, Infuse 4G, and Galaxy Tab 10.1 would have to stay on sale unless Apple won at the full trial. Koh didn't reject claims of validity, but also didn't believe Apple's view that a ban was urgent.

Apple picked four alleged violations that it said needed the ban, three of which focused on "electronic device" designs and a fourth for list scrolling and manipulating documents on a touchscreen.

AT&T finally allows non-Market apps on Android phones

05/06, 11:40am

ATT allows non-Market apps on Infuse 4G onwards

AT&T with the launch of the Infuse 4G last night at least partly reversed a longstanding policy on Android phones that had drawn criticism from those hoping to switch away from the iPhone.

It wasn't evident whether this was specific to the Infuse 4G or a broad policy, but as one of AT&T's flagship phones would be more likely to represent the carrier's overall attitude.
