Galaxy Nexus pulled from Google Play Store due to injunction
by Lim Pei Hao
06 July 2012 – Earlier this week, we have reported that the US Court has granted Apple a preliminary injunction on the Galaxy Nexus smartphones. Now, Samsung has filed a motion to stay the ban, but the request has been rejected by Federal Judge Lucy Koh.
According to ABC News, Google has decided to pull its Galaxy Nexus from its Play Store in the light of the Court’s injunction. However, the company plans to resume the sales of the Galaxy Nexus next week with the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update that would rectify the issues in the dispute.
In addition, The Verge also reported that Google and Samsung have developed a software patch that limits the “Quick Search Box” functionality external searches to the Internet. This means you cannot perform searches to look for data stored within your phone. The patch will be rolled out to all US carriers via OTA.
