16GB version of Galaxy Nexus due in early April


Verizon is expected to carry a 16GB version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, according to details obtained by Droid Life.  Priced at $ 199 it would be $ 100 less than the 32GB model that came out in late 2011 and likely just as popular, if not more.  Sounds a lot like what happened with the original Droid Razr, no?

Apple Appeals ITC Decision to Delay HTC Product Banning Until April


  Back in December 2011 Apple won an ITC case against HTC where they sued the Taiwanese smartphone maker for infringing on several of their patents, four to be exact.
