Google promises Galaxy Nexus sales by next week

Google promises Galaxy Nexus sales by next week

This week, as it were, Google has been banned from selling the Galaxy Nexus due to a court battle between Samsung and Apple and the software the smartphone contains. According to Google though, starting next week this ban will be lifted for the smart device because of a software update which will bring the newest version of Android, version 4.1 Jelly Bean, to the device, shipped and ready. This update also brings a tweak to the software which supposedly stops Apple's patent claim that's currently holding the device from sales.

Amazing Spider-Man product placement makes us giggle

Amazing Spider-Man product placement makes us giggle

Now that The Amazing Spider-Man is out for all to see, it's time to talk about the gadgets and software you'll be seeing when you decide to head to the theater this weekend. Of course if you live up here in Minnesota, you'll be considering going to the movies this whole week just to get out of the heat - that just makes good sense. What doesn't make a whole heck of a lot of sense to those viewers of The Amazing Spider-Man is the choices Peter Parker makes in the film in regards to both software and hardware.

Let's have a peek at the voice search capabilities of the Nexus 7 right this second.

Galaxy Nexus sales frozen: Google promises imminent fix

Galaxy Nexus sales frozen: Google promises imminent fix

Google has pulled the Galaxy Nexus from its official Play store, no longer offering the unlocked, HSPA+ version of the Samsung smartphone after Apple convinced a judge to preserve its preliminary injunction. As of this morning, the Galaxy Nexus listing shows the handset as "coming soon" with a sign-up box for notifications; exactly when it will go on sale is unclear, though some suggestions indicate a workaround might mean that happens sooner rather than later and Google has promised it will hit shelves again sometime next week.

Galaxy Nexus sales ban to stay until further notice

Galaxy Nexus sales ban to stay until further notice

This week has been a bad one for the lawyers in charge of keeping Samsung's mobile products on the shelves as not only the Galaxy Tab 10.1 but the Galaxy Nexus have now had bids to end their preliminary sales ban in two separate Apple court cases. Apple is currently working on legal suits against Samsung in regards to alleged patent infringement and has won preliminary sales bans on both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Nexus in the USA until the court cases take place. In other words - good luck trying to find either device for sale in the USA until the cases are resolved.

Galaxy Nexus sales ban up in the air pending appeal

Galaxy Nexus sales ban up in the air pending appeal

It appears that the case involving Apple and Google's Galaxy Nexus device (made by Samsung) has yielded a bit of a confusing set of circumstances. According to Foss Patents legal aficionado Florian Mueller and All Things D writer Ina Fried, we'll still need to wait on a ruling for the pre-ruling on if the Galaxy Nexus will continue to be able to be sold in the USA. The case at hand has Apple filing a suit against the Galaxy Nexus and has since this weekend had a sales ban enacted through the court against said phone until the court case can decide if the device truly does infringe upon Apple's patent for a '604 Siri-style quick search.
