Galaxy Nexus No Longer Available In The Play Store; OTA Update Coming Soon To Remove Universal Search
By on July 3rd, 2012

Remember the preliminary injunction that Apple got against the sale of the Galaxy Nexus in the United States? Apple had appealed that the Galaxy Nexus infringes on four of its patents, and the judge agreed to it, and handed a preliminary injunction on the sale of the Galaxy Nexus in the United States on the basis of the four patent – universal search.

Well, things just went from bad to worse for Samsung as the judge has ruled out Samsung’s request to remove the ban on the sale of the handset in the U.S. Soon after this decision, the Galaxy Nexus was also taken off from sale from Google’s Play Store.

The good news is that both Samsung and Google are working hard on releasing an OTA update that will remove the universal search feature from the Galaxy Nexus. The OTA update should take only a few days before it’s ready for a roll-out. Samsung can once again file for a motion to dissolve the injunction once the OTA update is live in the United States.

What truly saddens me is that Judge Koh instead of bashing both the companies for their stupidity, is banning the sales of products left and right. She had earlier granted Apple an injunction against the sale of the Galaxy Tab in the United States. This patent war is getting out of hand, and it’s high time something is done to fix it.
