SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 6, 2012

Welcome to the SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: Presidential Edition. The world of tech didn't come to a halt just because we needed to go out and vote, so in case you missed it, here's the big news from the day. We learned today that HTC and Verizon will be holding a press event on November 13, and it's there that we're expecting to get our first official introduction to the HTC DROID DNA. Speaking of HTC, the company gave us its earnings for October 2012 today, and they aren't looking all that great. Halo 4 officially launched today, but it isn't without its share of server problems, and physical Google Wallet cards have been confirmed on a Google support page.

We've collided head-on with the month of August, and today we had some interesting news stories to ring in the eighth month of the year. Surprisingly enough, we didn't have too much news about the ongoing trial between Apple and Samsung, except for the part where Samsung made Apple really angry by sending evidence that the original iPhone was inspired by Sony designs out to the press. Samsung found itself in a bit of hot water after that leak, so this evening it seems that Samsung has managed to get on Judge Lucy Koh's bad side. The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said today that the Galaxy Nexus can remain on sale until August 20 despite Apple's request for its preliminary injunction against the phone to be restored, so if you've been planning to buy one, your window to do so has been extended.

Additionally, just as it is with any other use of a credit card, each use of Google Wallet at "more than 200,000 retail locations" across the USA require that you show a picture ID to make it work.

Isis solidifies American Express support

The biggest competitor to Google Wallet - and when I say biggest competitor I mean it's going to chew up Google Wallet and spit it out like a piece of bad meat - has just joined forces with American Express to have the three biggest credit card issuers already flipping the switch with its mobile payment platform. Isis, a joint venture between T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon, is steadily making its way to a nationwide launch.
