Last week, Apple managed to get preliminary injunction against the sales of the Galaxy Nexus in the United States, which was later followed by the removal of the handset from sale on Google Play Store. Google and Samsung also confirmed that they are working on an OTA update to remove the universal search patent in question, on which basis Apple was granted the injunction.
Well, Google has once again re-listed the Galaxy Nexus on the Play Store with an expected delivery date of 1-2 weeks. There is no clear reason as to why Google has re-listed the handset for sale on the Play Store once again, considering Apple’s preliminary injunction is still valid. However, the court did temporarily remove the ban on the handset awaiting Apple’s response. Even if that is the case, the handset still has a delivery time of 1-2 weeks, in contrast to its immediate availability before this.
The only logical explanation here is that since the device has a delivery time of 1-2 weeks, it will be running on Jelly Bean, which does not infringes on any of the Apple’s patent(s). Whatever the case may be, the tempting price of the Galaxy Nexus along with all the attention it has been getting thanks to the Apple’s legal team is surely enough to give the handset’s sale a slight boost.
