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.

Samsung demands Apple’s Galaxy Nexus ban be frozen

Samsung demands Apple’s Galaxy Nexus ban be frozen

Samsung has appealed against the preliminary injunction blocking US Galaxy Nexus sales, arguing Apple cannot prove that iPhone market share is legitimately threatened by the Android phone. Apple secured the early injunction late last week, convincing a US judge that the Galaxy Nexus is likely to be found infringing on at least one of four patents the Cupertino company holds. However, Samsung insists that Apple's case fails to prove that the potential loss of market share caused by the third-gen Google phone is as "substantial" as the Federal Circuit's requirements.

Apple granted preliminary sales ban of Galaxy Nexus

Apple has been granted a preliminary sales injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the US, with the Cupertino company now required to stump up a $96m bond in order to secure the ban. The decision was tweeted by Reuters' Dan Levine, and follows a win earlier this week for Apple against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, with the US court granting a preliminary injunction against the Android tablet in the US.

Google: Nexus 7 is proof we won’t give Motorola special treatment

Google has explained why it selected ASUS rather than Motorola Mobility for the Nexus 7 tablet, arguing that the good of the Android ecosystem is more important than giving the US company preferential treatment. "We acquired Motorola to help the ecosystem in terms of patents and intellectual property" director of Android partner engineering Patrick Brady told CNET, though conceded that he could understand other partners looking on with some skepticism and fear.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean headed for Google I/O

This week one purchase on the Google Play store for hardware has suddenly become all the rage: the HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus, complete with an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the works. That's what the device's description reads, anyway, and with Google I/O less than a week away, we're fully prepared to call it as well: a whole new update for Android is headed our way just one year after Ice Cream Sandwich was first introduced.
